Review: The second book in the A Charm of Magpies series, A Case of Possession picks up shortly after the end of The Magpie Lord. Lucien and Stephen are continuing with their relationship, though Lucien can’t help but feel like there’s a limit to their connection – there are things Stephen is keeping from him. Before they get a chance to try to sort this out, they get pulled into another mystery surrounding several murders and a suicide and attempts by one of Lucien’s former associates to blackmail him, Stephen, and one of Lucien’s good friends. There more paranormal adventure here as well as a number of further tests of Lucien and Stephen’s young relationship.
While I liked The Magpie Lord, I feel like this one is even steps above it. There is more depth in this book and while there’s a lot that happens, I found it easier to follow. Meeting Stephen’s associates was also a great touch that added more depth to the world in which Lucien and Stephen live. Another great historical paranormal mystery romance.
