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...… (mere)

Loved seeing Crane and Stephen run around and solve this one. Out of the 3 i think i enjoyed the hunt in this one the most. I would agree that the ending was a bit short but the extra twists and actually seeing them work together was fun to see. They are getting closer but still somehow have secrets to solve betwixt each other. A great follow up to the first book ( )

I'm probably biased by the fact that I took several breaks from this to read other things and not purely because I wasn't interested, so my overall impression of this is a bit spotty, but I did generally really enjoy the book. It's a nice follow-up to book 1.

There's also a kind of... weird thing. I can't decide if giving the magic-using Jewish woman a magic nose is a cute play on antisemitic stereotypes or just a dumb idea at best. But maybe it's just a true accident with unfortunate parallels.

The follow-up short story is also a bit overly gorey for me, but overall it was a nice story that focused on Merrick.

Looking forward to book 3!

The ending wasn't quite as exciting and satisfying as in the first book, but overall I enjoyed seeing their relationship develop, enough to make up for that. They're a cute couple well suited to each other. I had a little bit of trouble keeping all the people they interviewed straight, but that could have just been my own distraction. The narrator on the audiobook did a good job.

2nd read- Their relationship developing further is just very satisfying. And I like the new additions to the cast, the first time I read this I wasn't sure who might be a recurring character, so it was nice to meet them again with that insight. And as always, Crane is hilarious. ( )

Crane and Stephen's latest adventure had an Indiana Jones feel to it. The pace was fast and the trouble found them from an exotic locale. I enjoy the way these two men blend together even to the point that the magpie tattoos move. I thought Stephen's partner, Mrs. Gold, was perfect in her work and her calm acceptance of Stephen's relationship with Crane. Well written with a nice blend of magic and the mundane makes this easy read a must. ( )

It did take me awhile to wander through this story, though that last 20% was all in one shot. That's on me. I have some trouble with the settings of these stories and the way the characters speak. However, I am delighted to "know" Crane and Merrick and Stephen and their compatriots. I already bought the next book. :) ( )
