    When The Magpie Lord burst into my periphery back in September 2013, I immediately thought it was fresh and exciting. So of course the sequel became the case of high anticipation. Did it deliver? Hell, yeah! In some part it was even better although in other parts, I was a bit let down....

    4.5 stars Hey The Magpie Lord fans?this is book 2. But?it feels?different. And I mean that in a way that screams?it?s even better! A Case of Possession, in my opinion, could even possibly be read as a standalone. Very little of book 1 sets anything up for book 2 othe...

    Have you ever finished a book and said to yourself, ?Dammit, how the fuck am I supposed to review that!? I mean, if you look at my review forThe Magpie Lord, I was obviously in the same situation, as evidenced by the measly 86 words I was able to sputter out. But I?m going ...

    Real Rating: 4.5* of five Not quite five...although it was set to be...because when the enemy was vanquished, there were still things to be done that weren't. The dead men, the story that inspired the hideous plague of rats were not tied together anywhere near well enough. But th...

    And you thought the countryside was bad. London manages to bring forth a plague of disturbing proportions--Rats. Let your imagination enlarge that unconscious fear and enjoy the story. Aside from the aforementioned icky bits there's Stephen's team to meet. Yay. Sassy group. Also, C...

    More of a Sophomore Slouch, really. To me this felt a bit rushed and insubstantial; the plotting seemed a gauzy thing easily swept aside at the end. Not enough conflict, or humor, or tension. Way too much conversation, as fun as that can be to read when penned by a master. Sti...

    If you liked The Magpie Lord, you?ll love A Case of Possession. But, wait! Before you read it, go download Interlude with Tattoos for free at Smashwords. That lovely little story takes place right after Crane and Stephen come back from Crane?s haunted mansion and gives you some of ...

    4.5 stars RATS!! Rats, rats, rats everywhere! Mutant rats. Tidal waves of scurrying, ravaging little beasties? well, maybe not so little. There?s blood and guts and gore and lots of eeww-yuck grizzly bits. If you?re squeamish, beware! But for the rest of us, this is anoth...

    The level of awesomeness that is this series, really, truly, I can?t put into words. A Case of Possession, the second installment in the A Charm of Magpies Series by KJ Charles is just as good as the first, and THAT is one hard act to follow. In this story we go back to 19th century ...

    Apologies for spamming your feeds with magpies, my friends...0_o An entertaining blend of adventure, suspense, horror, romance and hotness. My only niggle being that this story felt rushed. The various components of the story all fought for attention, and I don't think the author to...

    4.5 stars. This was a different book from the first, and I loved it for and in spite of those differences. It's a more emotional book, with more heart. Crane and Stephen matter to each other now, not as two men in the first brilliant flash of mutual attraction, but with a bond that...

    Magpie Gate: Season 2 Commencing in... The Magpie Lord was most certainly one of the best buzz books of 2013. Could the latest addition in the A Charm of Magpies series, "A Case of Possession" continue the charm and repeat the buzz? Hmm let me think about it... ?You lo...

    After reading book 1 in this series and rating it 3.75 stars bloody shrimping stars (I promise I was neither high nor drunk at the time. I think. Maybe), I was expecting this instalment to make me feel more or less like this: And also a little bit like this: Don't ask. ...

    A continuation of the first volume, new adventures for our characters and some new background introduced, plus a shakedown cruise of the relationship. The plot reminded me of nothing so much as the love child of Sax Rohmer and William Goldman. Or Sax/Bill. I begin to suspect the mag...

    Sexier than the original and just as witty, filled with dead shamans, giant rats, and revenge. I will never get tired of Lucien and Stephen. All hail the magpies! ...

    Even better than the first book! While keeping all the excitement and charm of The Magpie Lord, A Case of Possession expands the world of Day and Crane. We meet the other members of Day's team, all of whom are colorful and fascinating on their own, as well as a number of Crane's friend...

    See me all flushed and catching my breath... Crane gives me shivers. Delicious shivers. And that was just watching him deal with a blackmailer. Then, to see him with Stephen...there are no words. "You. Get your mouth back on my cock. Now." So imperious, but so desperate. And so f...

    It's even better than the first. There's more sex--and better. Snap! Our cast expands, adding several great and funny new characters. We get to see Stephen in Justiciar action with his bad-ass team of magical SWATs. Speaking of, the story features enough gory, revolting mayhem to satis...

    It couldn't be better! The funny thing is that I had decided I would never again read Historical Romance. Well, this isn't exactly HR, it is Historical Fiction, and entwined with MM notes, all of this makes this book a wonder thing to read. In the first book, Crane and Stephen are l...

    After I finished writing The Magpie Lord, I wanted to find out what Stephen and Crane would do next. All very well for these two guys to strike up a romance in an isolated decaying mansion full of magic, magpies and maniacs, but what happens when they take it back to the oppressive env...
