  • 1 thought on “Death Magic”

    1. Suspense filledLoved this short storye best book in the series, I think. I read this one last instead if first, though. The thing that keeps me reading this series is the interesting information regarding practices and beliefs of the 17th century era in London. I've learned so much about the religious practices of the times. Quinn has done a thorough research and written another intriguing plot. Definite must read for historical fiction readers.

    2. Great little readThis was a fun story. I've read all the Thief Taker books and have enjoyed them all. Good historical reads.

    3. I was hooked by the historical detail, the crime, the smart investigator, the complex plot. One of those stories that you pause your life for and then feel sad at the end because the book finishes and you have to put it down. For a short tine I walked beside Charlie Tuesday through those muddy lanes of London. I could feel the clay between my toes and smell the damp brine of that old roman bath. I immediately went looking for more Charlie Tuesday after this one.

    4. I really liked C.S Quinn's first book in this series, the Thief Taker, but thought that this second book was just too short, with very little plot development or character development. I know that it wasn't intended to be more than an extended short story, but I wish I had just waited for the second full book in the series.

    5. I don't usually read short storiesBut having read The Thief Taker, by C. S Quinn, I wouldn't pass anything she's written! And I was right, this story, short as it might be was every bit as good as her other book! I'm so glad that it's part of another book in her Thief Taker series, I just wish she'd hurry up and get them written!

    6. Death Magic makes up its shortness with tons of action and intrigue. I had forgotten how cool Charlie Tuesday is, and how his brain works to figure out what's going on. This brief chapter is pure business. I read it very quickly but enjoyed every word.

    7. A decent prequel short that doesn't require knowledge of the full-length books in the Thief Taker series. It's rather like an episode of Law & Order SVU: enjoyable, sensationalist, full of twists and turns, and ultimately forgettable.

    8. This was a quick novella that gave deeper in-depth of one of the main characters. I'm currently reading book one now.

    9. I'm not normally a fan of short stories but this was too appealing to miss. I didn't fail at all. a thoroughly enjoyable read.

    10. A marvelous taleThe very best review I can leave for this story is to say that it truly is a marvelous tale. You should read it. Four stars.

    11. Great seriesGreat short read to past the time while my son was at practice. Looking forward to reading the next book.

    12. Didn't expect thatAt all. This short part of the book I'm now interested to read, surprised me while the pages kept turning. Nice
