    Lots of twists

    Overall, a fascinating world and a plot that performs about turns. Writing is a bit fast in places but the relentless pace keeps those pages turning.

    Can't wait for the sequel!

    This book is one of the best fantasy novels I've read this year. I really enjoyed the world-building and characters. The story is really engaging and I can't wait to see where it goes in the next books (it's already taken some unexpected turns). I read the whole thing in just a couple days and am now going back to read it again at a more leisurely pace - the true mark of a good book!

    Epic novel of magic and politics and gods

    Epic (607 pages) fantasy about an alternate Georgian England where the Magi live side by side with us ordinaries, their King is dying and myths and rumours abound about who will be his successor. At the centre of the mystery is the Fury family, their ancestor foretold the backlash against magic and led the Magi to hide in plain sight amongst the ordinaries, he then set the current royal family on the throne. Will the Fury family find the successor? The Fury family are blessed with the magic of music, but their youngest daughter Persephone also had wild and dangerous gifts that the family try to suppress. As the family prepares for a grand ball to launch Persephone's beautiful sister Electra into the marriage mart, Persephone begins a great adventure where she will meet the King, future King, the True King and a rebellion. This novel effortlessly weaves Roman mythology with Welsh mythology, magic and battles, politics and family. True there were bits I didn't understand,(view spoiler) but still I was there in the palace, in the Welsh countryside trying to make sense of Persephone's 'gifts' just as she was. As the first part of an epic fantasy this ends with much still to learn - will the next book continue Persephone's journey or will it pick up with one of her brothers? Can't wait. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
