The Magpie LordHas good reason to hate Crane’s family Unfortunately it’s his job to deal with supernatural threats Besides the earl is unlike any aristocrat he’s ever met with the tattoos the attitude and the way Crane seems determined to get him into bed That’s definitely unusualSoon Stephen is falling hard for the worst possible man at the worst possible time But Crane’s dangerous app. Written better than all of my B™ reads this is a fun palate cleanser between demanding books Books that I’ve been avoiding for instance including finishing Romano’s well done one on zombies too long too end of the world depressing people Carter and Lovecraft too creepy horror The Light Brigade too wartime Indemnity Only too 1980s sleezy Chicago crime couched in women’s rights Idk I really don’t because I also hate rainbows and kittens “This is the drawing room It probably wouldn’t be so bad without the panelling or the chairs and if it was in a different house”Anyway this is fun fast break from all that Sure it opens with an almost suicide which is a bit of an emotional slap but we uickly find out that is unusual behavior from our extremely self confident lead“But if I can’t find him through any of the clubs we can just hang around all the filthiest opium dens in Limehouse till we meet him”“See” said Merrick “Things are looking up already”I burned through this on a lazy Sunday afternoon on the porch because that’s just about the perfect time and place for a read like this Great atmosphere with the growing threat of danger but there’s some snappy dialogue in there to also provide humor There is an instance or two of uestionable relationship behavior but it’s interesting because the characters call themselves out on it and–this is crazy here–have a discussion about it I don’t know what these modern authors are coming to actually talking out relationship stuff“I don’t think anyone is entitled to exploit his fellows because of an accident of birth You’re an earl I’m a practitioner both of us were born this way and neither of us is entitled to feed off other people because of it”Crane considered that “I’m bloody glad you’re here”“Really Because I wish to God we were both somewhere else”Anyway decent mystery interesting dynamic duo very interesting lead characters including Merrick I’d read from this team and that’s saying something because I’m not usually a fan of this setting Highly preferred over something like Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences etcThanks to Nataliya for trying and sharing this gem I highly recommend her reviewThree and a half spirits rounding up
