I love to get lost in a good book, especially ones that challenge and allow you to escape into another world!
A short read that took me little longer to read than I anticipated. The Magpie Lord is a mystery dealing with family history / curse mixed in with the trappings of an old world social structure.
There’s an M/M attraction, that doesn't create much tension (IMO), more a case of hinted intention for the majority of the story. My preference in books is for a storyline that's a little more edgy and suspenseful. I chose this as a suggested book of the month and probably wouldn't have picked it up otherwise.
