It’s time to jump into the second book in the Noctis Magicae series.
Sophie and Gray are at the College. Don't worry if it’s been a while since you read book one. You will catch up in no time at all. I know I did. I was debating wither or not to go buy a copy of book one so I could read it again. But, it became unnecessary. The author does a wonderful job reminding us of all the things we needed to know.
I’m a huge lover of books about woman with magic. Many of them are so good. In Lady of Magick Sophie and Gray are moving to Din Edin UN because the place is opener about people like them. But, then Gray disappears. So now Sophie is on her own with magic, being a girl. I really loved how Sophie did in this one. She didn’t let the disappearance of her husband stop her. She went after what she needed to do etc.
This was a great fantasy read. It was very quick and well I will have to track me down a copy of both books now. Fans of Robin McKinley will enjoy this one as well. I know I did.
The author did a wonderful job continuing the story. With magic, romance, and mystery this is sure to make your toes curl.
Sylvia Izzo Hunter brought “both rural Brittany and an alternative Regency England to vivid life”* in The Midnight Queen, her debut novel of history, magic, and myth. Now, in her new Noctis Magicae novel, Sophie and Gray Marshall are ensnared in an arcane plot that threatens to undo them both.
In her second year of studies at Merlin College, Oxford, Sophie Marshall is feeling alienated among fellow students who fail to welcome a woman to their ranks. So when her husband, Gray, is invited north as a visiting lecturer at the University in Din Edin, they leap at the chance. There, Sophie’s hunger for magical knowledge can finally be nourished. But soon, Sophie must put her newly learned skills to the test.
Sophie returns home one day to find a note from Gray—he’s been summoned urgently to London. But when he doesn’t return, and none of her spells can find a trace of him, she realizes something sinister has befallen him. With the help of her sister, Joanna, she delves into Gray’s disappearance, and soon finds herself in a web of magick and intrigue that threatens not just Gray, but the entire kingdom.
