An entertaining Scottish adventure for Gray and Sophie, while Sophie's more interesting non-magical sister Joanna displays interesting agency. The Scottish characters are interesting and varied, though I worry for a leader who keeps so little track of his potential adversaries. Still no attention to dress, and I'm not terribly attracted to the type of magic that is the basis for these books. ( )

Not as good as book 1, not sure if writing (style) needs more development ( )

Sylvia Izzo Hunter brought both rural Brittany and an alternative Regency England to vivid life *in "The Midnight Queen," her debut novel of history, magic, and myth. Now, in her new Noctis Magicae novel, Sophie and Gray Marshall are ensnared in an arcane plot that threatens to undo them both.
In her second year of studies at Merlin College, Oxford, Sophie Marshall is feeling alienated among fellow students who fail to welcome a woman to their ranks. So when her husband, Gray, is invited north as a visiting lecturer at the University in Din Edin, they leap at the chance. There, Sophie's hunger for magical knowledge can finally be nourished. But soon, Sophie must put her newly learned skills to the test. ( )

This is even better than the first book! I love the world-building, I love the characters, and I love the plots. Strongly recommended! ( )

Two years after the events of THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN, Sophie and Gray Marshall are living and working at Merlin College in Oxford. As the long-lost Princess Royal, Sophie finds her new status chafing, but makes slow headway at being accepted as a "normal" student. Gray receives an invitation to teach a course on shape-shifting in Alba, and the make the transfer north.

They settle in, with Sophie still hiding her new, uncomfortable rank, but eventually feels secure enough to allow some people to know the truth. As time passes, and the famine in Alba spreads, things become dark and troubling. As Joanna makes plans to make the trek north to visit, bringing her newfound friend Gwendolyn Pryce, Sophie considers telling her to remain in London for her own safety: darkness rides the land and foreign mages are going missing.

This is a fantastic read. If you loved the first book in the series, do not pass this one up. If you haven't read THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN yet, run out and get it so you can go straight into LADY OF MAGICK without missing a beat. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 042527246X, Paperback)

Sylvia Izzo Hunter brought “both rural Brittany and an alternative Regency England to vivid life”* in The Midnight Queen, her debut novel of history, magic, and myth. Now, in her new Noctis Magicae novel, Sophie and Gray Marshall are ensnared in an arcane plot that threatens to undo them both.
 
In her second year of studies at Merlin College, Oxford, Sophie Marshall is feeling alienated among fellow students who fail to welcome a woman to their ranks. So when her husband, Gray, is invited north as a visiting lecturer at the University in Din Edin, they leap at the chance. There, Sophie’s hunger for magical knowledge can finally be nourished. But soon, Sophie must put her newly learned skills to the test.
 
Sophie returns home one day to find a note from Gray—he’s been summoned urgently to London. But when he doesn’t return, and none of her spells can find a trace of him, she realizes something sinister has befallen him. With the help of her sister, Joanna, she delves into Gray’s disappearance, and soon finds herself in a web of magick and intrigue that threatens not just Gray, but the entire kingdom.
