A Marvellous Light by Freya Marske

Set in an alternative Edwardian England, this is a comedy of manners, manor houses, and hedge mazes: including a magic-infused murder mystery and a delightful queer romance.

Young baronet Robin Blyth thought he was taking up a minor governmental post.  However, he’s actually been appointed parliamentary liaison to a secret magical society.  If it weren’t for this administrative error, he’d never have discovered the incredible magic underlying his world.

Cursed by mysterious attackers and plagued by visions, Robin becomes determined to drag answers from his missing predecessor – but he’ll need the help of Edwin Courcey, his hostile magical-society counterpart.  Unwillingly thrown together, Robin and Edwin will discover a plot that threatens every magician in the British Isles.

The Binding meets Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell in debut author Freya Marske’s A Marvellous Light.

Peer & Press Reviews

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, author of An Unkindness of Magicians

Marske’s debut is a delightful blend of Edwardian fantasy and romance, with enough twists and questions to have readers clamoring for the next in the planned series.

Library Journal (starred Review)

Freya Marske has done something special with A Marvellous Light…  The prose is sublime, the world-building top-notch, and the magic system is fascinating and unique.  But what made me the happiest is how delightfully queer this story is.  Robin and Edward have my whole heart, and I adored watching their relationship blossom.  In the end, I can give no higher praise than this: I wish this world that Marske has created was real.

TJ Klune, author of Under the Whispering Door
