Flight of Magpies by K.J. Charles

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.
I wasn’t aware that when I started this book that while this was the third book in the series, it wasn’t a standalone.  Taking that into consideration, the beginning part of the story I was a lot confused about, but I did push past and kept reading and I’m very glad that I did so.

I thought that the characters were really well written and very easy to connect with.  There was a lot of action that was happening through the story that really kept my attention and kept me wanting to read more.  This book did also make me want to read the other books in the series because it was that interesting, and there was enough hints given about what had happen prior to this book that really make me want to find out more about them!

I would recommend this book to anyone who has read the other books in the series, and for anyone who is looking for a new read.
