Summary

An Indie Next Pick!
A LibraryReads Pick!
With Four Starred Reviews

Red, White & Royal Blue meets Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell in debut author Freya Marske's A Marvellous Light , featuring an Edwardian England full of magic, contracts, and conspiracies.

Robin Blyth has more than enough bother in his life. He's struggling to be a good older brother, a responsible employer, and the harried baronet of a seat gutted by his late parents' excesses. When an administrative mistake sees him named the civil service liaison to a hidden magical society, he discovers what's been operating beneath the unextraordinary reality he's always known.

Now Robin must contend with the beauty and danger of magic, an excruciating deadly curse, and the alarming visions of the future that come with it--not to mention Edwin Courcey, his cold and prickly counterpart in the magical bureaucracy, who clearly wishes Robin were anyone and anywhere else.

Robin's predecessor has disappeared, and the mystery of what happened to him reveals unsettling truths about the very oldest stories they've been told about the land they live on and what binds it. Thrown together and facing unexpected dangers, Robin and Edwin discover a plot that threatens every magician in the British Isles--and a secret that more than one person has already died to keep.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Opposites attract in this impressive, queer fantasy set in Edwardian England. Robin Blyth, an English society jock, is thrown into the magical world after being mistakenly assigned to the Office of Special Domestic Affairs and Complaints, a government position that works with the magical liaison, the uptight Edwin Courcey. Edwin initially bristles at the churlish Robin and means to correct this obvious human resource error by erasing his memory with lethe-mint, a common practice in the magic world. However, his plans change when Robin is attacked then marked with a strange tattooed curse by a group of masked magicians looking for the last contract. But why is the last contract so important? What happened to Robin's predecessor? Will they be able to remove Robin's curse before it's too late? And why is he suddenly having strange visions? Both men tentatively dance around their growing attraction until a dangerous encounter with an imbued hedge maze brings everything to a boiling point. Marske's debut successfully combines the steamy romance of Casey McQuiston's Red, White, and Royal Blue (2019) with enchanting magic and mystery à la Harry Potter. This trilogy opener is sure to capture the hearts of romance and fantasy readers alike."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Marske debuts with a breathtaking queer romantic fantasy set in Edwardian England. Financial necessity leads newly titled, 25-year-old baronet Robin Blyth to take a post in the Office of Special Domestic Affairs and Complaints, where Edwin Courcey, liaison to the Chief Minister of the Magical Assembly, "unbushells" him by disclosing the reality of magic. Thugs accost Robin that same evening, placing a curse on him and demanding to know the location of a powerful object his predecessor hid. When Edwin learns of the curse, which gives Robin unbidden glimpses of the future, he whisks Robin to his family's country estate. There, Edwin, who lacks raw magical power but has a keen mind and a knack for research, attempts to find a solution while his family, including a sister whose pranks teeter on mean-spirited and a brother who torments him, cook up magical diversions. Edwin and Robin share some deliciously described sexual encounters as their research takes them to a powerful, dangerous magical estate. After forcing a vision leaves Robin nonresponsive, Edwin makes a risky decision that lifts the curse but causes a rift between the men as the identities of Robin's attackers come to light. Sensual erotic scenes, an intriguing magic system, and a puzzling mystery combine to make this novel a wonder. Fans of C.L. Polk's Witchmark, period queer novels, and creative fantasy will all clamor for more. Agent: Diana Fox, Fox Literary. (Nov.)"
