Product description

Review

Mystery! Magic! Murder! Long looks full of yearning! This book is a confection, both marvellous and light -- Alix E. Harrow

That sublime prose! Her astonishing gift for imagery! And, of course, her bountiful and endless talent for writing some extremely sexy scenes.
A Marvellous Light is all that and more. Perfect -- Jenn Lyons

A magical world of exquisite refinement, where peril skims beneath manners, interiors bespeak both faultless taste and deadly secrets, and the sexual tension crescendos until it literally makes sparks fly.
A dazzling debut -- Shelley Parker-Chan

Romantic in the best way,
funny, sharp, sexy, fantastical. Prepare to fall in love with the gorgeous Edwardian setting, the sizzling character dynamics, and the murderous enchanted hedge maze -- Emily Tesh

Freya Marske's
A Marvellous Light is an absolute delight. I was caught from the very beginning by the compellingly realized characters, the gorgeous and deadly magical world, and the fascinating mystery. If you ever wished Downton Abbey was sharper-edged and full of magic, this is the book for you -- Kat Howard

Freya's prose is so splendid that merely reading it makes me feel like I've been filled to the brim with champagne bubbles.
A Marvellous Light has everything you could ever want from a book – beautiful descriptions, expertly woven world-building, queer kissing, sexual tension in a library, quite a lot of William Morris wallpaper . . . This book is brilliant on every level. It is wondrous. It is, if you will excuse a small joke, marvellous -- Alexandra Rowland

A charming, lovingly crafted adventure full of peril, romance and wit, illuminated by sparkling turns of phrase and a pervasive sense of humour -- A. K. Larkwood

Equal parts fantasy, mystery and romance – with bonus murderous garden features –
A Marvellous Light heralds a strong new voice in science fiction and fantasy -- Sam Hawke

This romantic fantasy is
full of fascinating world-building, layers upon layers of delicious magic, and characters I adored. I want to spend so much more time in this alternate England's enchanted libraries and sinister hedge mazes! The whole experience was a delight -- Stephanie Burgis

A gripping story, told in precise and sensual language, with the kind of characters that make you want a spin-off book for even the ones you've barely met. Magic, romance and mayhem in a beautifully decorated – and occasionally actively dangerous – Edwardian setting -- Malka Older

A completely enchanting story that sweeps you into a world of art and romance. Marske is an extraordinary talent who writes compelling characters, entertainingly awful families, and love stories like nobody else -- Everina Maxwell

A breathtaking queer romantic fantasy . . . Sensual erotic scenes, an intriguing magic system, and a puzzling mystery combine to make this novel a wonder -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

An
enchanting, gripping and dazzling debut -- Daily Mail

Compelling, sumptuously written, clever and brimming with intrigue and sexual tension (and its release) . . . The definition of reading for pure pleasure; we are ready for the next instalment, immediately -- Attitude Magazine

Lush historical fantasy . . .
a delightful book, with richly developed characters -- New York Times

Review

A delightful historical romp, perfect for fans of <i>The Binding</i> and <i>The Invisible Library</i>. In an alternative Edwardian England, a Baronet and a magician must unravel a murder mystery together - whether they want to or not.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them meets Bridgerton
Reviewed in Australia on 29 October 2021
A Marvellous Light features, but is not limited to, the following themes:
○ Historical fantasy
○ Secret magic society
○ LGBTQA+
○ Mystery
○ MM scenes
○ Curses
○ Magic
○ Forbidden romance

My overall rating for A Marvellous Light is…

3 Stars!

A Marvellous Light combines the wonders and magic of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, with the intricate and old-fashioned high society of Bridgerton. This book was hit and miss for me, though I should clarify it is not something I would usually read. I loved the main characters, Edwin and Robin. Their romance was defiant and challenging but oh so delicious. The magical world Marske brought to life was vibrant and vivacious. What I struggled with with this book was the historical aspect of the writing, which made the tale feel dull and uninspiring at times. Overall, this author has incredible imagination and brings characters to life flawlessly, but has a writing style that may not agree with all pallets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming romance in magical Edwardian London!
Reviewed in Australia on 2 January 2022
I absolutely adored this charming romance, set in a magical Edwardian London.

Robin accidentally gets a job - and an agonising curse - in a hidden magical London. Enter grumpy magician Edwin, who’s here to lift the curse!

I loved the grumpy/sunshine romance, the magic system, and the setting. Can’t wait for the next book!
