An interesting alternate history in which magic is prime rather than science and technology. The story begins in what seems to be 19th century Oxford, where post-graduate student Gray Marshall becomes involved, through no fault of his own in machinations, treachery, high treason and a lost princess.
The characters are well-rounded and interesting and the alternative history plausible.
The narration is overall good, each character well-defined, though with some very strange pronounciations - Samhain pronounced as it is spelt, Sam-Hain rather than the more usual Sa-WAIN, but I decided to accept it as the way it is pronounced in this world.
The story is complete in itself, but I do hope there will be more by this author.
A very good find.

This listen was even better than I had hoped for. The story was clever and clean. I hope this is just the start of a new magical series. I could hardly wait to get back to it each time. The performance was delightful. This girl loves a nice accent.

An alternative world fantasy story which is really a mystery story as well. Summer vacation adventure very nice to listen to during a summer vacation. The story is very nice with unexpected twists. The performance was also very good. Looking forward to book 2.
