Publisher's Summary

Archaeologist Saul Lazenby has been all but unemployable since his disgrace during the War. Now he scrapes a living working for a rich eccentric who believes in magic. Saul knows it's a lot of nonsense...except that he begins to find himself in increasingly strange and frightening situations. And at every turn he runs into the sardonic, mysterious Randolph Glyde.

Randolph is the last of an ancient line of arcanists, commanding deep secrets and extraordinary powers as he struggles to fulfill his family duties in a war-torn world. He knows there's something odd going on with the haunted-looking man who keeps turning up in all the wrong places. The only question for Randolph is whether Saul is victim or villain.

Saul hasn't trusted anyone in a long time. But as the supernatural threat grows, along with the desire between them, he'll need to believe in evasive, enraging, devastatingly attractive Randolph. Because he may be the only man who can save Saul's life - or his soul.

Contains mature themes.

Wonderful story, clearly narrated, but not sure the narrator’s voice “fit” for me

I adore this book, and the audiobook is well-produced, clearly read, and the narrator does a decent range of voices. As a matter of personal preference I found the voices a little too “light” and chipper in places - Saul in particular was higher and more airy than the stiff-upper-lip-desperately-trying-to-hold-it-together tone I had imagined, but it didn’t spoil my overall enjoyment. I think the narrator’s voice for the (sort-of) prequel for this book, The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal, fit the tone of the text better, but again: didn’t spoil the book overall, and this narrator reads clearly and accurately.

Enjoyable Story

The story and characters  are engaging and the narrator has very distinctive voices for each character, always a plus for me. Hope there is more soon.

It's KJ Charles, we already know its gonna be good

The book was solid and the characters easy to get into the mindset of. Although upon realising the narrator sounded somewhat like Alan Titchmarsh on Time Team, it was very difficult to shake. But overall great book and I'm bummed the sequel isn't focused upon the same two characters.

Lovely

A very enjoyable book. I would advise listening to 'The Casebook of Simon Feximal' before you listen to this title as it will make more sense if you do. The narration was super.
