あらすじ・解説

Danger in the air. Lovers on the brink.

A Charm of Magpies, Book 3: With the justiciary understaffed, a series of horrifying occult murders to be investigated, and a young student who is flying - literally - off the rails, magical law enforcer Stephen Day is under increasing stress. And his relationship with his aristocratic lover, Lord Crane, is beginning to feel the strain. Crane chafes at the restrictions of England's laws, and there's a worrying development in the blood-and-sex bond he shares with Stephen. A development that makes a sensible man question if they should be together at all.

When a thief strikes at the heart of Crane's home, a devastating loss brings his closest relationships into bitter conflict - especially his relationship with Stephen. And as old enemies, new enemies, and unexpected enemies paint the lovers into a corner, the pressure threatens to tear them apart.

Warning: Contains hot-blooded sex, cold-blooded murder, sinister magical goings-on, and a lot of swearing.

Yes!!!!! What a couple!!

<strong>What a thrill ride!</strong>

Ah, my lovelies, whilst I lie sick in bed writing this review I crave not medicines and elixirs: I crave Crane (and of course, Stephen).
Yes, their story is over for the most part. I’m told they pop in for the next book, but it’s not the same really, is it?

Here our very proper Crane and his very filthy mouth finds himself in dire straits. Thank goodness for that mouth of his for he puts it to good use in attempting to save not only himself, but his lover Stephen against the evil machinations of a warlock gone mad.

Treachery is afoot in this third installment and it comes from unexpected places. There is a huge tug of war between Crane and Stephen over his dangerous job and Crane’s desire to return to China. Will duty or desire win?

Needless to say, an HEA is in store for our mismatched lovers, at least for now. I’ve been ripping through this series in audiobook and let me tell you, every penny was worth it. I started the next book in the Charm of Magpie World starring a character here and a new one. No Crane or Stephen yet, but I know they’ll make an appearance.

These books are phenomenal, even more so in audiobook....HIGHLY recommended, especially the sex scenes as Crane likes to be bossy in bed and Stephen loves him that way!

Great story, characters, and prose!

I've only just started reading in the romance category, and as I've blundered about looking for good books to read, I came upon the "A Charm of Magpies" series by K. J. Charles. Book 1 was a wonderful surprise. The writing is top shelf with witty, evocative, and fresh. Charles is a masterful talent, taking the familiar tropes and beats of the genre and employing them in clever ways that made them seem new and interesting. When I finished book 1 ("The Magpie Lord") I immediately devoured every book in the series with ever increasing delight. This one, "Flight of Magpies" was particularly was fun.

I also cannot praise enough the performance by Cornell Collins. I absolutely loved listening to his readings of these books. His voice is pleasant to listen to, and his characterizations fit perfectly for me. He made an already fun series of books even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this book and all the books in the "A Charm of Magpies" series.

sigh

It almost physically hurts that this trilogy is over. Stephen and Lucien are one of my favorite couples ever. Seriously, top 10. Many thanks for also including the short stories that go with the series. It was a wonderful surprise.

Dark arc comes to satisfying close

The magpies come home to roost in dark, glorious, x-rated style. Story threads and characters from the beginning mesh with the now regular cast of Crane, Day, Merrick, Saint, and Mr. & Mrs. Gold. But, as much as I enjoyed the conclusion to Lord Crane and Stephen Day’s story arc, I loved the bonus short story at the end even more.

Dear author, can you please, please put out an anthology of Crane and Merrick’s escapades in China?

After this book, the series switches to different MM couples. If you need Crane and Day, re-listen to the trilogy. If you want to spend time in this world and enjoy new, gritty paranormal MM romances, then continue on.

Outstanding Great collaboration

This is the third book in the Charm of Magpie series. I agree with a quote I heard from Scarlett Peckham on the podcast smart bitches trashy books. She is a masterclass of plotting. I love the continued growth of these characters. The adrenaline rush I get with not just the erotic scenes but the paranormal crime mystery that has to be solved is truly fantastic. Cornell Collins brings the synergy... kaboom. Love these guys.
Thanks to you both

this has been fantastic

I'd enjoyed the first two books immensely, but the third tops them. Character and relationship building feel so real and significant, and the plot combines action and magic so well, with moments of humour. And some pretty great swearing, too.
Cornell Collins' reading is full of life and feeling, and animates the books to perfection.

Great series and narration

This series is a great historical, magical fantasy, mystery, and m/m romance. And the narrator, Cornell Collins is wonderful. Worth the series read and listen!

Fitting end to the trilogy

I stumbled on this series by accident and really enjoyed it.
Great characterisation, plots and excellent narration throughout.
Some have commented on the relative shortness but the prologues at the end of each book are enjoyable in their own right and serve to bridge to the next book.

Adventure

Another great adventure in this series of books. Each installment grows the characters and mythology of this imagined world.

Great supernatural series!

As the magpie lord bond between Lucien and Stephen strengthens and the magic becomes more unpredictable, they rush to solve a spate of robberies and gruesome deaths in this third book in the Charm of Magpies series. Meanwhile, their relationship is becoming less secret, Stephen’s job more untenable, and the idea of living abroad more desirable - the writing seems to be on the wall. I’ve enjoyed KJ Charles’ blend of humour, Victorian manners, mystery, and magical horror - they all work seamlessly together. I’ve also enjoyed the contrasting MCs: Lucien is tall, rich, handsome, and mocking of his reputation as only the very rich can be, whereas Stephen, is short, poor, badly-dressed, and serious about his work and his secrets. The world-build has been strong and I’m glad KJ has written some standalones set in the same world, it would be a shame to leave it and Cornell Collins’ excellent narrations so soon. Bonus points for the generous extra story Feast Of Stephen!
