GAAAAAHHHH. These two are just. So. CUTE. Apparently that’s how I start all my reviews for this series because it is the most accurate expression of my feelings. And what makes me love this cuteness so much is that it doesn’t feel cheesy. It feels genuine. And it’s just so adorable. That’s my favorite thing about these books. I just love the romance so much. And I felt for them, having to sneak around and dealing with the struggles of living in a time when men couldn’t openly love other men. Throwing in Arthur’s ex added a bit of an interesting element too. But mostly they’re just so damn cute.
I love both Rory and Arthur as individual characters too. Both such good people. Rory so hardworking, stubborn, feisty, and not afraid to tell off anyone who deserves it but sweet and caring to the ones who deserve that side of him. Arthur so compassionate and valiant, always wanting to help people.
The plot was great too. A plot involving magic and paranormals and a bit of mystery. It felt a little more complex this time.
The paranormal abilities were interesting again. Rory’s psychometry and wind powers. Others with their telekinesis, astral projection, and other abilities.
I also still loved the Prohibition Era setting and how well the author infuses the book with the feel of it.
Just another really great book all-around! Great characters. Great setting. Great paranormal abilities. Great plot. And an especially great romance!
Fans of Book 1 in Allie Therin's Magic in Manhattan series. Anyone who likes adorable characters and relationships, supernatural powers, and the Prohibition Era.
