A POWER UNBOUND by Freya Marske
Secrets! Magic! Enemies to. . .something more?
Jack Alston, Lord Hawthorn, would love a nice, safe, comfortable life. After the death of his twin sister, he thought he was done with magic for good. But with the threat of a dangerous ritual hanging over every magician in Britain, he’s drawn reluctantly back into that world.
Now Jack is living in a bizarre puzzle-box of a magical London townhouse, helping an unlikely group of friends track down the final piece of the Last Contract before their enemies can do the same. And to make matters worse, they need the help of writer and thief Alan Ross.
Cagey and argumentative, Alan is only in this for the money. The aristocratic Lord Hawthorn, with all his unearned power, is everything that Alan hates. And unfortunately, Alan happens to be everything that Jack wants in one gorgeous, infuriating package.
When a plot to seize unimaginable power comes to a head at Cheetham Hall―Jack’s ancestral family estate, a land so old and bound in oaths that it’s grown a personality as prickly as its owner―Jack, Alan and their allies will become entangled in a night of champagne, secrets, and bloody sacrifice . . . and the foundations of magic in Britain will be torn up by the roots before the end.
A Power Unbound will take readers on a twisty, magical adventurous romp, leaving you breathless and aching for this story not to be over. With lyrical prose (I was highlighting so many great lines in this novel), steamy romance (make sure to hydrate book friends), and a magical system fantasy lovers will appreciate.
I loved A Power Unbound!!!
All of the magic, the anticipation, the romance, it’s all so perfectly executed that I was on pins and needles to see what would happen next. And now that I’ve finished 😔, if I’m being honest, I do not want this series to end. There is a kernel of hope that Marske could potentially write another series, but with a different cast of characters.
A Few More Thoughts
This is by far my favorite out of the set and book friends if you’ve read A MARVELOUS LIGHT and/or A RESTLESS TRUTH get ready to be swept off your feet and pulled into this incredible conclusion of Freya Marske’s The Last Binding series.
