    English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. They can only write long, dull papers about it, while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memory.

    Andrew says: "Best Listen In a Long Time"
    "For adult fans of magic with a terrific narrator"
    Overall

    Simon Prebble is fabulous with voices. I knew who was speaking when several people were in the room. The book is terrific and moved me emotionally, almost to tears, and I certainly laughed out loud as well. I enjoyed it years ago as text and returned to it with a new love for the narrated version. If you have a taste for British culture with magicians thrown in to this "historical" fiction, then this is the book for you.

    As a pair of young scholars research the lives of two Victorian poets, they uncover their letters, journals, and poems, and track their movements from London to Yorkshire - from spiritualist seances to the fairy-haunted far west of Brittany. What emerges is an extraordinary counterpoint of passion and ideas.

    Inga E. Calvin says: "audible poetry"
    "Fabulous Book!"

    Story

    This puts a nice twist on the detective story. No murder here, but intrigue and excitement through missing documents, poems, and letters from dead poets.

    My only complaint is the narrator gives a Deep South, Georgia, accent to a character from New Mexico.
