Description

Lord Thornby has been trapped on his father's isolated Yorkshire estate for a year. There are no bars or chains; he simply can't leave. His sanity is starting to fray.   

When industrial magician John Blake arrives to investigate a case of witchcraft, he finds the peculiar, arrogant Thornby as alarming as he is attractive. John soon finds himself caught up in a dark fairy tale, where all the rules of magic - and love - are changed.    

To set Thornby free, both men must face life - changing truths - and John must accept that the brave, witty man who's winning his heart may also be about to break it. Can they escape a web of magic that's as perilous as love?

Wonderful story and narration!

An intriguing mysterious manor, a cursed marquis/father, an afflicted and imprisoned son/earl, a dissatisfied second wife, and a plebeian but talented magician comes together and the result is a love story where several mysteries are unraveled. The main characters are very likable and you are rooting for them both. Joel Leslie of course makes the story come alive. Highly recommended.

Magical fantasy. I loved it!

Lord Thornby has been literally trapped on his father's estate for a year. Whenever he tries to leave he physically can't as if magically tethered to the land. He is about to go insane when a guest arrives stating his father invited him. John Bake is a strange man. One day he is following Lord Tornby to be surprised that he sees him, thinking he is under an invisibility spell. the two men go from despising each other to desire. But why is Jogh really there and why can Lord Thornby not leave?
This story is a very well developed, mystical, magical story. I love to read something that is out of my box on occasion and this was right up my alley.
Joel Leslie is the master at bringing stories to life with a unique voice and inflection. I think I enjoyed his narration much more than I would have reading this on my own.
If you love magic, deceit, potions, spells, unique creatures, fantasy, and suspense you will love this.

Fantasy at it's finest.

What an amazing story. The world was so rich and colourful. I felt as if I walked the paths that John and Lord Thornby walked. I could hear the voices in the walls and feel the pelts they handled. The characters were dynamic and came alive for me. The writing was masterful and well paced. The story-line was creative and intriguing, both beautiful and horrible. Definitely going in my reread pile.

Narrator Joel Leslie lifted it to off the chart levels. The sarcasm rolled off of Lord Thornby's tongue (as did other things) and I could practically feel the spittle flying from his father's mouth as he ranted at his son.

Sophisticated high fantasy

High fantasy based on centuries old folklore (which is new to me) placed within the context of the social mores and sensibilities of the 18th century while addressing an audience of the 21st...To the author and performer......Well done..Gwen

Good but imperfect

I liked a lot about this book. The story was unique and I enjoyed the magical aspects. I thought the characters were well developed and their connection felt genuine. Toward the end, though, the intimate moments and sex scenes seemed to grow more and more ridiculous. And they weren’t very well written in the first place. I almost gave the book 3 stars because it was so off-putting. In the end, I think the book is probably about 3.5 stars (with 2 star sex scenes) and the narration was 4.5 stars.

Good book, glorious audiobook

I thought it was a very good book when I read it last year; I placed it on my "honorable mention" list for 2018. But when an incredibly talented voice actor like Joel Leslie performs this marvelous story... it becomes sublime. The prose all the more stunning, the story line even more brilliant, deftly drawn characters explode into life, and the atmosphere becomes something in which a listener could drown. Highly recommended. More, please!

ending felt unfinished

don't get me wrong, the story was great . Joel's narration was perfect as always. my only issue was the ending.it just felt like a hard stop, instead of a slow cruise to the end.

Very enjoyable.

I was insanely happy to see there was an audio version for Salt Magic, Skin Magic available, since I had enjoyed the book immensely. The audiobook did not disappoint, it was very enjoyable to listen to John and Soren's story again. Joel Leslie's narration is very good and brings the characters (including those made of iron and other stuff) to life.

I love the magic system and would really like to read more books in this universe. Highly recommended.
