Marisa Calin gives a breathy and breathless performance of this rollicking YA fantasy set in 1983 England. Art student Susan Arkshaw longs to live a normal life, but she keeps getting drawn into a world of magic and danger. Calin ramps up the action as Susan and her dashing boyfriend, Merlin St. Jacques, face a murderous enemy who can animate marble sculptures. Merlin is part of a family that protects ordinary people from magical beings, and Calin communicates Susan's conflicted feelings about becoming further enmeshed with them, as well as about her own powerful magical heritage. She also never stumbles over Nix's lovingly detailed descriptions of vintage clothes, vehicles, and weapons. A fun sequel to THE LEFT-HANDED BOOKSELLERS OF LONDON.
