Publisher's Summary

Magic in the blood. Danger in the streets.
Lord Crane has never had a lover quite as elusive as Stephen Day. He knows Stephen's job as justiciar requires secrecy, but the magician is doing his disappearing act more than seems reasonable - especially since Crane will soon return to his home in China. When a blackmailer threatens to expose their illicit relationship, there's only one thing stopping Crane from leaving the country he loathes: Stephen.
Stephen has problems of his own. As he investigates a plague of giant rats sweeping London, his sudden increase in power, boosted by his blood-and-sex bond with Crane, is rousing suspicion that he's turned warlock. With all eyes on him, the threat of exposure grows. Stephen could lose his friends, his job, and his liberty over his relationship with Crane. He's not sure if he can take that risk much longer. Crane isn't sure if he can ask him to.
The rats are closing in, and something has to give....

Another entertaining story

Another entertaining story that was superbly narrated, but PLEASE stop artificially inflating the audiobook length by adding on chapters from the next book in the series. It actually spoils my enjoyment of the book. If I buy a book that is 6hrs long I expect a story to be 6hrs long, not 4.5 hrs with a short story added, and then after that, chapters from the next book in the series. It is so annoying and makes me feel like I've been duped into paying for audio I won't listen to because if I do it will be a pain to find my place in the next story on my MP3 player. I really hope this doesn't become a wider trend with audiobooks because it feels like a con.

Marvellous. Simply marvellous.

I’ve loved the hell out of the Magpie books ever since stumbling across them on Kindle some time ago, and reread them several times.

Unfortunately audio performances don’t always live up to the version one ‘heard’ in one’s head, but Mr Collins delivers a thoroughly terrific performance from start to finish.

Excellent (and clearly distinct) characterisation of the myriad disparate characters peopling the Magpie books, and an engaging narrative voice. Heartily recommend!
