Mysterious Arts

The Mysterious Arts books explore the intersection of the arts and the magic of Albion.

The books of the Mysterious Arts series

You can read the books in any order, but there is an overall arc reflecting changes in approaches to the land magic and the ties and associations between a number of characters.

  • In Bound for Perdition, Lynet has been charged with creating magical journals that allow instant communication. When Reggie is assigned to help her, they have to find a way to work together – and then to solve an ongoing problem with their supplies. (Out in February 2023).
  • Shoemaker’s Wife begins when Owen is finally demobbed in the summer of 1920. He and Clara married quickly during the War, but now they need to figure out how to have a marriage – even though he has trouble finding work, and she’s anxiously holding her aunt’s apothecary shop together. When he gets a job at one of Trellech’s theatres, that just creates a whole new set of problems. (Out in August 2023).
