'Smart and subversive, these charming romances will ignite your heart - and your hope' Shelley Parker-Chan, author of She Who Became the Sun

Proper Regency ladies are not supposed to become magicians - but Miss Abigail Wilder is far from proper.

The marriageable young ladies of London are dying mysteriously, and Abigail Wilder intends to discover why. Abigail's father, the Lord Sorcier of England, believes that a dark lord of faerie is involved - but while Abigail is willing to match her magic against Lord Longshadow, neither her father nor high society believe that she is capable of doing so.

Thankfully, Abigail is not the only one investigating the terrible events in London. Mercy, a street rat and self-taught magician, insists on joining Abigail to unravel the mystery. But while Mercy's own magic is strange and foreboding, she may well pose an even greater danger to Abigail's heart.

From the author of HALF A SOUL comes a queer faerie tale romance full of love and defiant hope. Pick up LONGSHADOW, and return once more to Olivia Atwater's charming, magical version of Regency England.

Praise for Olivia Atwater:

'Half a Soul is the perfect balm for these bad times. It's whimsical but never frivolous, sweet but not sugary, deeply kind rather than merely nice. I loved it' Alix E. Harrow on Half a Soul

'A delightful, romantic romp that also deftly examines class and privilege, Half a Soul is the definition of a comfort read' Hannah Whitten on Half a Soul

'A perfect historical fantasy romance: warm, sparkling with magic, dangerous and delightful. I absolutely adored it.' Tasha Suri, author of The Jasmine Throne on Half a Soul

'A hugely enjoyable take on the Regency. . . I wolfed this down with great pleasure' KJ Charles on Half a Soul

'Whimsical, witty, and brimming over with charm' India Holton, author of The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels on Half a Soul

'Half a Soul is exactly the comfort read we all need. . . it sweeps you off your feet in the swooniest way possible' Megan Bannen, author of The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy on Half a Soul

'A charming and original take on both the fae and the Regency fantasy genre, with plenty of humour and heart. I couldn't put it down.' Heather Fawcett, author of Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries on Half a Soul

MEDIA REVIEWS

A hugely enjoyable take on the Regency. . . I wolfed this down with great pleasure. - KJ Charles on HALF A SOUL

I've read these books more times than I can count. Atwater's stubborn, quietly radical characters defy the expectations of both society and fairy tales as they blaze new paths towards love and decency. Smart and subversive, these charming romances will ignite your heart-and your hope - Shelley Parker-Chan, author of SHE WHO BECAME THE SUN

Whimsical, witty, and brimming over with charm. . . Dora and the Lord Sorcier have a place amongst my favourite fantasy romance couples ever - India Holton, author of THE WISTERIA SOCIETY OF LADY SCOUNDRELS

Half a Soul is exactly the comfort read we all need. This winsome, whimsical fantasy romance has much to say about privilege, justice, and the power of empathy, even as it sweeps you off your feet in the swooniest way possible - Megan Bannen, author of THE UNDERTAKING OF HART AND MERCY

A delightful, romantic romp that also deftly examines class and privilege, Half a Soul is the definition of a comfort read - Hannah Whitten on HALF A SOUL

Half a Soul is the perfect balm for these bad times. It's whimsical but never frivolous, sweet but not sugary, deeply kind rather than merely nice. I loved it - Alix E. Harrow on HALF A SOUL

Half a Soul is a perfect historical fantasy romance: warm, sparkling with magic, dangerous and delightful. I absolutely adored it. - Tasha Suri, author of THE JASMINE THRONE

A charming and original take on both the fae and the Regency fantasy genre, with plenty of humour and heart. I couldn't put it down. - Heather Fawcett, author of EMILY WILDE'S ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF FAERIES on HALF A SOUL

“A regency fairytale - what's not to love?”

When I first started reading this book and discovered it was about Elias and Dora's daughter Abigail, I really thought I wouldn't enjoy it. I loved Half a Soul so much and was so invested in Elias and Dora,... More

“Loved it!”

After reading and loving Half a Soul, I had to read the other books in the series. Longshadow has a crossover of characters that we got to meet and fall for in the previous two books, and this stories focuses on... More
