KJ Charles does it again with another fabulous exciting endlessly entertaining story I know I can always count n her to deliver when I need her most I wholeheartedly recommend this book with a few minor caveats First Slave To The Gladiator of all I think all prospective readersf this story should start with A ueer Trade the preuel novella I think it gives background information that is really necessary
to understand the main characters and the dynamic f the relationship betweenunderstand the main characters and the dynamic f the relationship between and Ned Secondly you should NOT jump into this series without first reading The Magpie Lord It s best if you read the entire Magpie Lord series before you start this ne There is so entire Magpie Lord series before you start this ne There is so information there about the magical world in which these books are set that I think you are The Medusa Game (Medusa Project operating at a deficit if you start your The Worldf A Charm Forever Again of Magpies journey here Now that that background stuff isut آتش بدون دود کتاب دوم of the way I can get to the story Rag and Bone was son point To start I don t think I ve ever read a historical romance where the main MCs are in an interracial relationship much less a MM historical with The Last Men Out one shoutut to Courtney Milan for The Heiress Effect where the side characters have an interracial romance Combine that with some really fascinating and well crafted magical world building and tons Autopsy of intense action and you ve got yourself a winner I adore how KJ Charles envisions her Magpie world and the amountf thought she takes with her storytelling Her characters magical practices make sense in that brilliant way that so few authors are able to pull Diapered In The Fraternity Basement off I loved Crispin s uniue strainf magic and the pressure that that put The Dragonward (The Godsfall Trilogy, on him It was a casef really masterful writing Though I wasn t uite up to the same level Unknown (Unknown of emotional investment with Crispin and Ned as somef the Wer Böses in sich trägt other KJ Charles pairings I think that I could grow to bebsessed with them as a couple too There was something special forming there and I have extremely high hopes for this Stuifzand offshoot series Copy provided in exchange for an honest review A tremendously good book by probably the best writer in MM fiction today It was sweet tender funny scary and at times pretty fucking gross everything I expect from books set in the Charmf Magpies world An absolute delight I write the world as I want it to be I write and it is I loved KJ Charle s Magpie trilogy and the introduction into that magic focused Historical society As a fan Междупанелни войни of course I m happy she s continued in that world despite ending the trilogy with Lucien and Stephen Day They have remained my favorites but it was fun to run into Ben and Jonah s tense situation in Jackdaw and now two new characters in Rag and Bone The story touches thethers since Stephen Day is in this Christmas in Cold Creek (Cowboys of Cold Creek, one a decent amount as well as somef the The Noble Guardian (The Bow Street Runners other major playersf the magic police force like Esther For the first part Patience of the story they just annoy me with frustrating bureaucracy but they save face later with a clever twist and solution It seems sometimes people seem to be misunderstanding when they re actually getting it in the first placeYou also see a small glimpsef Jonah and the beginning f his storyescape ends up coinciding with a major development with this book It seems the author is setting these up right before Stephen Day departs the team permanentlyIt s intriguing how each person gets their uniue magical ability and I like how Crispin s power is something that can be conceived as dark magic but is a powerful uniue force which can be used for good if he doesn t stray into Warlock territory The solution in the end fitted that perfectlyOn the negative side the characters just aren t as addictive Crispin is a sweet guy but I do wish he had a stronger backbone Sometimes I wanted to slap him and make him asset himself Sure Stephen had a submissive streak but if he believed in
he d it Stuttering can be an endearing trait but Crispin seemed to weak willed to hold the book together by himself Ned is a cool guy as well but again just kind f there I like them.
