Red, White & Royal Blue meets Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell in debut author Freya Marske’s A Marvellous Light, featuring an Edwardian England full of magic, contracts, and conspiracies.

Robin Blyth has more than enough bother in his life. He’s struggling to be a good older brother, a responsible employer, and the harried baronet of a seat gutted by his late parents’ excesses. When an administrative mistake sees him named the civil service liaison to a hidden magical society, he discovers what’s been operating beneath the unextraordinary reality he’s always known.

Now Robin must contend with the beauty and danger of magic, an excruciating deadly curse, and the alarming visions of the future that come with it—not to mention Edwin Courcey, his cold and prickly counterpart in the magical bureaucracy, who clearly wishes Robin were anyone and anywhere else.

Robin’s predecessor has disappeared, and the mystery of what happened to him reveals unsettling truths about the very oldest stories they’ve been told about the land they live on and what binds it. Thrown together and facing unexpected dangers, Robin and Edwin discover a plot that threatens every magician in the British Isles—and a secret that more than one person has already died to keep.

    I love the story and the narrator clearly put his heart into the performance, but sometimes it came off as too forceful when the scene was supposed to be more quiet or romantic. Also, for immersion's sake I would have preferred somebody younger-sounding.

    I really enjoyed this very English queer romance / murder mystery. It was easy to keep up with the plot even if I'd get distracted & zone out of some parts, & overall I just really like the main characters & their dynamic. Well done

    The narrator was terrible and the story was very boring.
  • Bewertung: 5 von 5 Sternen
    absolutely stunning in every way. the story was satisfying, but fresh and unexpected in a way that had me surprised (and delighted) by every turn it took. the audio narration was good- it didn’t exactly blow me away but it worked well, and wasn’t ever distracting.

    Story was good, but not the narrator. The voices the narrator used made them sound too cartoonist and juvenile. It was distracting and threw off the vibe.
