Summary

Are curses real?

After a toymaker magician gives a lecture at a collector’s club soiree, an important spell is stolen and a man is found strangled. The investigation into his murder leads India and Matt to the colorful and dangerous world of the Romany gypsy where curses are used as weapons against their enemies.

But nobody seems to know if curses are real or not.

As Matt and India close in on the killer, old foes bring trouble into their lives. With the threat of exposure hanging over London’s magicians, disaster is never far away. Then one fateful day, catastrophe strikes the Park Street household.

Chapter missing

There must have been a full chapter missing, in chapter 16 a statement is made by India to her grandfather about selling spells .. yet there was no reference to this in the whole story

more Marian please!

Love the Glass and Steele series. Please keep India's watch and reticule story entwined. Marian Hussey is a perfect read for the series. Her consistency with voices for each person is astounding, incredibly easy to follow, and allows for the reader/listener to be immersed in another place and time.

Layered with motive

Captivating! I received the first 6 books through the free public library. If I had waited until the beginning of the new month, I would have received 7-12 for free as well. I could not wait. I am glad I did not. I hope this goes to film. The relationships in book 11 are distinct and rich.

Love this series

Good series, wish India was not such a worry wart. It get kind of bothersome the way she goes on about trying to keep Matt safe. Otherwise it is very good.

Fun Listen

I have listened to all the books so far. The characters are relatable and engaging. Since the setting is in the late 19th century London, England is a bit of a departure for me, I excuse the less than impeccable grammar being spoken by the upper class characters.

Another great one!

I love this series and all the antics of the characters. The mystery and intrigue is great as well. Some of the mysteries are solved and some are ongoing. I can't wait to see what happens next!
