Annie Mason returns to Crow Island to wrap up the affairs of her father just after World War I. She is hoping to reconnect with her friend Beatrice, who left the island for bigger and better things. While there, Annie also meets the enigmatic Emmeline and then is swept up into the magical world of Crow Island. She gets pulled into a mysterious world that makes her question the boundaries of wickedness and may ultimately cost Annie her life. Broken into several smaller books that all cohesively come together, May’s debut novel is beautifully written with complex characters. Annie and Beatrice have a fairytale romance that is both believable and necessary for the storytelling. Narrators Marisa Calin, Gemma Dawson, and Ralph Lister add beauty and give life to the mesmerizing world of magic and misdeeds. The audiobook also offers atmospheric musical interludes between each of the chapters.
VERDICT Featuring queer romance, this enjoyable tale of magic would be a wonderful addition to any collection.
