Summary

Best friends Aubrey and George begin their magical hijinks in this first book of the Laws of Magic series.

At a weekend shooting party at Prince Albert's country estate, Aubrey and George find themselves in a hotbed of intrigue and politics. Together they discover a golem, a magical creature built to perform one task - to kill Prince Albert.

Aubrey and George are hailed as heroes for foiling the attempt on the prince's life - but who sent the golem, and why? Aubrey is far too curious to let the authorities handle this one, and he and George start an investigation of their own to get to the bottom of the royal assassination attempt.

Degas got me into this..

The only reason I picked this book was because Rupert Degas narrated it. After the name of the wind I think he could read me an ironing instruction manual and I would hang on every lilt and tone of voice. The book started with a bang and did not disappoint, enjoyed the characterisation and the story gripped me. Rupert Degas's performance again was superb. Looking forward to the rest of the books in the series.

Excellent!

I loved the audiobook as much as the book itself - the narrator was excellent and made the quality of the writing stand out even more.
