The mix of magic and proper society is one I find quite fascinating in a book, so I was delighted when Galen Beckett’s The House on Durrow Street fell into my hands. Book two of the continuing adventures of Ivy Quent, Dashton Rafferdy and Eldyn Garritt, this trio again uncover the secrets of magic and illusion, while also making choices that will affect their place in society and their world. As a dark otherworld force draws nearer, its evil is becoming apparent to all. From official release/information:
Product Description: "A charming and mannered fantasy confection with a darker core of gothic romance" is how New York Times bestselling author Robin Hobb described Galen Beckett's marvelous series opener, The Magicians and Mrs. Quent. Now Beckett returns to this world of dazzling magick and refined manners, where one extraordinary woman's choice will put the fate of a nation—and all she cherishes—into precarious balance.
