I found this series right before the previous publishing company it was being published with folded. I was devastated, because it meant waiting months until I could finish the trilogy. Luckily, it was absolutely worth the wait.
The conclusion to this trilogy brought together much of the story and plot elements from the previous books, showing us more of how the society of practitioners works in England, the growing power of the Magpie Lord, and multiple developing relationships.
As usual, Crane and Stephen are a fantastic pair. Even when they’re being dumb about each other, they’re too perfect for words. I’m so happy that they get such a wonderful happily ever after together (that doesn’t count as a spoiler when this is a romance and it’s obvious from the moment they meet in the very first book).
This trilogy was my first introduction to queer historical romance with an urban fantasy twist. Everything else I read in that vein will have a lot to live up to.
