    After I finished writing The Magpie Lord, I wanted to find out what Stephen and Crane would do next All very well for these two guys to strike up a romance in an isolated decaying mansion full of magic, magpies and maniacs, but what happens when they take it back to the oppressive environment of Victorian London where Crane has a business to run, and Stephen has to enforce the law on other magicians, while dodging it for himself It was obvious that this story needed to centre around one of St After I finished writing The Magpie Lord, I wanted to find out what Stephen and Crane would do next All very well for these two guys to strike up a romance in an isolated decaying mansion full of magic, magpies and maniacs, but what happens when they take it back to the oppressive environment of Victorian London where Crane has a business to run, and Stephen has to enforce the law on other magicians, while dodging it for himself It was obvious that this story needed to centre around one of Stephen s cases of magical malpractice, and while I was thinking of Victorian mysteries, one of the greatest teasers of all time came to mind Matilda Briggs was not the name of a young woman, Watson, said Holmes in a reminiscent voice It was a ship which is associated with the giant rat of Sumatra, a story for which the world is not yet prepared That s all we ever heard from Conan Doyle about the giant rat of Sumatra, so I used my imagination freely on this I don t suppose my giant rats bear any resemblance to Holmes s, and I m sure he and Watson would be shocked by what Crane and Stephen get up to unless you believe the rumours, of course But I enjoyed borrowing the idea, and I hope you enjoy what I did with it There is a free short Charm of Magpies story available now

    4.5 starsHey The Magpie Lord fans this is book 2 But it feels different And I mean that in a way that screams it s even better A Case of Possession, in my opinion, could even possibly be read as a standalone Very little of book 1 sets anything up for book 2 other than the introduction of our fantastic characters of Crane, Stephen, and Merrick And those characters are SO GREAT in book 2 along with somefun and freaky and fantastic side characters added to the mixAlthough, let s get r 4.5 starsHey The Magpie Lord fans this is book 2 But it feels different And I mean that in a way that screams it s even better A Case of Possession, in my opinion, could even possibly be read as a standalone Very little of book 1 sets anything up for book 2 other than the introduction of our fantastic characters of Crane, Stephen, and Merrick And those characters are SO GREAT in book 2 along with somefun and freaky and fantastic side characters added to the mixAlthough, let s get real you don t want to miss out on The Magpie Lord so you should just go ahead and read it first AND it DOES help if you ve read Interlude with Tattoos the short story 1.5 of the series as some of that actually is referenced in book 2 The story itself is a tiny bit convoluted and though I m equal parts obsessed and disgusted with the ROUS s random Princess Bride referencesorry , engrossed with the story of possession, and enad and have a bit of a crush on Leo and her story I did find myself confused at times I wasn t quite sure what happened or what was happening and that may have to do with the fact I wasn t sure who was who at points there are a lot of characters with bit parts And like in book 1, the solving of the mystery kinda came out of nowhere BUT the scene where it was solved GAHHHHD DAMN that was some creepy disgusting stuff That being said, the STAR of the book TOOK OVER and THREW DOWN and insisted that he was going to be WITTIER and MORE CHARMING and SEXIER and MORE VULNERABLE than could have been imagined even after book 1 and all the shorts that followed Lucien Crane YOU DA MAN Crane made me laugh with his snarkiness, he made me cry with his tenderness, he made me SQUIRM with his dominance I love the progression of his and Stephen s relationship It was sweet and lovely and fiercely loyal and even Merrick stepped in and was rooting for them This couple, actually, surprisingly, is becoming one of my favorites I will read and reread and memorize their conversation at about the 73% mark The raw honesty there was gah I don t know my HEART it was so full Author KJ Charles has a sick and brilliant mind Ha I mean, the stuff she writes about her stories have these twisted mystery foundations, and then she layers it with some gross or shocking or blech y details, and she throws in some hot lovin and sweet romance, and it all mixes together for something magical I m such a fan.I won t demand book 3 right away not if you keep giving us some great shorts in between while we wait As you do Loved it

    The Magpie Lord Buddy read with the MacHalo group.I didn t like this one as much as the first, but it was enjoyable Another mystery to solve involving giant magicked rats I could have done without the relationship drama between Stephen and Crane Meh I guess it s better to get it out of the way early on, though.Crane is magnificent and hilarious I don t like Stephen as much The mystery was underwhelming, but it s not a bad book at all I ll get around to the next one soon.Buddy read wi The Magpie Lord Buddy read with the MacHalo group.I didn t like this one as much as the first, but it was enjoyable Another mystery to solve involving giant magicked rats I could have done without the relationship drama between Stephen and Crane Meh I guess it s better to get it out of the way early on, though.Crane is magnificent and hilarious I don t like Stephen as much The mystery was underwhelming, but it s not a bad book at all I ll get around to the next one soon.Buddy read with the MacHalo group

    More of a Sopho Slouch, really.To me this felt a bit rushed and insubstantial the plotting seemed a gauzy thing easily swept aside at the end.Not enough conflict, or humor, or tension Way too much conversation, as fun as that can be to read when penned by a master.Still.Charles is exceptional Even her second tier work is better than most people s first.Lesser, then but still quite Good.
