Summary

India's study into the language of spells is interrupted by the arrest of her teacher for an unpaid debt. Before Matt can repay it for him, the powerful magician escapes from his prison cell. To make matters worse, the moneylender is murdered and the magician is implicated.

Convinced of his innocence, India and Matt must discover who really killed the moneylender before the police find the magician. Their investigation leads them down a path littered with lies, betrayal, scandal, and interference from people they don't trust.

Meanwhile, Matt's relatives accuse Cyclops of ruining their daughter, and plan to marry off their manipulative youngest to someone even more manipulative and far more powerful. Should Matt and India support the union, or try to stop it? And how will they stop Cyclops from being deported back to America?

Good but not the best

I really enjoy this series and this is a fair addition. I did feel that this book was a bit too formulaic. I didn’t think the central mystery was as strong as others in the series so got a bit bored. Saying that, I still love visiting these characters and want them to all get their happy endings. I’ll definitely be buying number 9.

Amazing

This was such a great book to listen to, Hussey has a great talent with all the voices and those voices helped with how the characters act. My heart panged whenever Matt called India his wife. I'm soo happy they are married now, also what an ending, February can't come any quicker

Fantastic series! Book 9 hurry, hurry!

Love the continued story of Matt and India and the whole host of characters in this series -- each title presents an exciting new troublesome case for the group to solve. Love, love, love the magical element and how each magician has a specialized talent and magical ability. Looking forward to Book 9 -- write faster Ms. Archer!
