"Join a new crime mystery fantasy series at the beginning with The Hexologists, a fabulously creative, and hugely entertaining novel. "
Hats off to Josiah Bancroft, he has created the most wonderfully magical world and a cracking investigative team in the start to this new series where the Wilby’s are tasked with solving a forty year old mystery involving the king. I really enjoyed meeting a married couple as the main protagonists, with each supporting and highlighting the strengths of the other. The world-building with its classic Victoriana feel is subtly done, allowing understanding to organically grow alongside the plot. The fantasy elements are gloriously full-on with different strands of magic and an abundance of marvellous beast and beings. The plot whips along, with the mystery just begging to be solved. Plenty of action peppers the pages and the outcome is a successfully entertaining read. I’ve chosen The Hexologists as a LoveReading Star Book, and Liz Pick of the Month, I look forward to the next in the series. The Hexologists dances a jig as it spins and weaves its web of magical mystery, quite simply loved it, highly recommended.
