Sylvia Izzo Hunter brought "both rural Brittany and an alternative Regency England to vivid life" (national best-selling author Juliet Marillier) 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.

"dissappointed in the end"
It was entertaining but the end left me not wanting to read/listen to the next one as much as the first book did.
I'm sorry, I listened to half of this book during a very long drive. I couldn't even finish it. the accent of the reader was so thick i couldn't always understand him, and I was so totally bored I couldn't even finish it.
