Longshadow, Paperback / softback Book

Longshadow Paperback / softback

Part of the Regency Faerie Tales series

Paperback / softback


'Smart and subversive, these charming romances will ignite your heart - and your hope' Shelley Parker-Chan, author of She Who Became the SunProper Regency ladies are not supposed to become magicians - but Miss Abigail Wilder is far from proper. The marriageable young ladies of London are dying mysteriously, and Abigail Wilder intends to discover why.

Abigail's father, the Lord Sorcier of England, believes that a dark lord of faerie is involved - but while Abigail is willing to match her magic against Lord Longshadow, neither her father nor high society believe that she is capable of doing so. Thankfully, Abigail is not the only one investigating the terrible events in London.

Mercy, a street rat and self-taught magician, insists on joining Abigail to unravel the mystery.

But while Mercy's own magic is strange and foreboding, she may well pose an even greater danger to Abigail's heart. From the author of HALF A SOUL comes a queer faerie tale romance full of love and defiant hope.

Pick up LONGSHADOW, and return once more to Olivia Atwater's charming, magical version of Regency England. Praise for Olivia Atwater:'Half a Soul is the perfect balm for these bad times.

It's whimsical but never frivolous, sweet but not sugary, deeply kind rather than merely nice.

I loved it' Alix E. Harrow on Half a Soul'A delightful, romantic romp that also deftly examines class and privilege, Half a Soul is the definition of a comfort read' Hannah Whitten on Half a Soul'A perfect historical fantasy romance: warm, sparkling with magic, dangerous and delightful.

I absolutely adored it.' Tasha Suri, author of The Jasmine Throne on Half a Soul'A hugely enjoyable take on the Regency. . . I wolfed this down with great pleasure' KJ Charles on Half a Soul'Whimsical, witty, and brimming over with charm' India Holton, author of The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels on Half a Soul'Half a Soul is exactly the comfort read we all need. . . it sweeps you off your feet in the swooniest way possible' Megan Bannen, author of The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy on Half a Soul'A charming and original take on both the fae and the Regency fantasy genre, with plenty of humour and heart.

I couldn't put it down.' Heather Fawcett, author of Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries on Half a Soul
