The Magpie Lord by KJ Charles ~ Review by Brandilyn

The Magpie Lord (A Charm of Magpies, #1)The Magpie Lord by K.J. Charles
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blurb:
A lord in danger. A magician in turmoil. A snowball in hell.

A Charm of Magpies, Book 1

Exiled to China for twenty years, Lucien Vaudrey never planned to return to England. But with the mysterious deaths of his father and brother, it seems the new Lord Crane has inherited an earldom. He’s also inherited his family’s enemies. He needs magical assistance, fast. He doesn’t expect it to turn up angry.

Magician Stephen Day has 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 unusual.

Soon Stephen is falling hard for the worst possible man, at the worst possible time. But Crane’s dangerous appeal isn’t the only thing rendering Stephen powerless. Evil pervades the house, a web of plots is closing round Crane, and if Stephen can’t find a way through it—they’re both going to die.

Warning: Contains hot m/m sex between a deeply inappropriate earl and a very confused magician, dark plots in a magical version of Victorian England, family values (not the good kind), and a lot of swearing.


This was a Pick it for Me Challenge book (i.e. someone else told me to read it 😉 ) for me and I I was very concerned when it was chosen. I even almost asked for a re-pick (which isn’t really allowed) because regency and Victorian England just don’t do it for me at.all. However, I really enjoyed this book. The magic and sorcery far outweighed my disdain for the time period. Lucien and Stephen are awesome and I really like Merrick. I liked it so much, I already have book 2 on pre-order.
