City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte
Penguin | 27 Nov 2012
City of Dark Magic is the debut novel by the mysterious Magnus Flyte (pseudonym for authors Meg Howrey and Christina Lynch) and it has captured my imagination and interest – I can’t wait to read my copy which is due to arrive any day now. Due to the generosity of Penguin, I am delighted to offer FIVE U.S. readers the opportunity to win a copy of the book along with a set of themed buttons.
ABOUT THE BOOK
From the publisher:
Rollicking, sexy and wildly imaginative, CITY OF DARK MAGIC is the story of musicologist Sarah Weston who accepts an invitation to spend the summer at Prague Castle cataloging Beethoven’s manuscripts for the wealthy Lobkowicz family. While there, she discovers a city filled with dark magic, where the fabric of time is thin and danger lies around every corner. CITY OF DARK MAGIC could be called a rom-com paranormal suspense novel—or it could simply be called one of the most entertaining novels of the year.
Conan O’Brien raves, “This deliciously madcap novel has it all: murder in Prague, time travel, a misanthropic Beethoven, tantric sex, and a dwarf with attitude. I salute you, Magnus Flyte!” And Kirkus Reviews says, “The riddle of Beethoven’s ‘Immortal Beloved,’ alchemy and clandestine love fuse in this fast-paced, funny, romantic mystery. … An exuberant, surprising gem.”
Here is the fun book trailer:
