The mesmerising conclusion to Marske's queer fantasy set in an alternate Edwardian England, A Power Unbound finds reluctant magician Jack drawn into a deadly conspiracy whilst fighting his feelings for a roguish thief.

Secrets! Magic! Enemies to . . . something more? Set in an alternative Edwardian England, A Power Unbound is the steamy, spellbinding conclusion to The Last Binding trilogy by Freya Marske.

Jack Alston - Lord Hawthorn - would love a nice, safe, comfortable life. He renounced magic after the death of his twin sister. But with the threat of a dangerous ritual risking every magician in Britain, he's drawn reluctantly back into that world. Now Jack is living in a bizarre puzzle-box of a magical London townhouse, helping its owner Violet track down the final piece of the Last Contract before their enemies can do the same.

And to make matters worse, they need the help of writer and thief Alan Ross. Cagey and argumentative, Alan is only in this for the money. He's loud in his hatred of the aristocracy and their unearned power . . . and unfortunately, he happens to be everything that Jack wants in one gorgeous, infuriating package.

When a plot to seize unimaginable magic power comes to a head on Jack's own family estate, Jack, Alan and their allies will become entangled in a night of champagne, secrets and bloody sacrifice - and the foundations of magic in Britain might be torn up by the roots before the end.

Filled with magic, murder and romance, A Power Unbound is the thrilling third book in The Last Binding trilogy by Freya Marske.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Stunning—the writing is lush, the world-building is fascinating, and the romance is searing hot. I am completely obsessed with this story of unrepentantly dangerous people falling in love with one another - Cat Sebastian, author of The Queer Principles of Kit Webb

Showstopping . . . Marske again demonstrates her talent for balancing romance and fantasy action. This does the series proud - Publishers Weekly, starred review

Delightful and spicy . . . Marske is simply superb at her chosen genres - The New York Times on The Last Binding trilogy

A delightful, twisty, endlessly charming romp. I would travel anywhere with these characters - Grace D. Li, author of Portrait of a Thief

A Restless Truth keeps all the heart and heat of A Marvellous Light, but quadruples the hijinks. It's the lesbian locked-room murder mystery of my dreams. Beyond delightful - Alix E. Harrow, author of Starling House on A Restless Truth

Jaw-droppingly fantastic. Anyone who's ever hoped that the Miss Phryne Fisher Mysteries had a bit more magic and a lot more sex is going to adore this book, which doesn't skimp on either. Add to that fantastic, thoroughly captivating characters, a deeply engaging story and divinely lyrical prose. In a word: delightful - Jenn Lyons, author of The Ruin of Kings on A Restless Truth

A magical world of exquisite refinement, where peril skims beneath manners, interiors bespeak both faultless taste and deadly secrets, and the sexual tension crescendos until it literally makes sparks fly. A dazzling debut - Shelley Parker-Chan, author of She Who Became the Sun on A Marvellous Light

A breathtaking queer romantic fantasy . . . Sensual erotic scenes, an intriguing magic system, and a puzzling mystery combine to make this novel a wonder - Publishers Weekly starred review on A Marvellous Light
