Publisher's Summary

A stunning, addictive fantasy debut that combines intrigue, magic, betrayal, and romance in an original world with a historical WWI tone. In an original world reminiscent of Edwardian England in the shadow of a world war, cabals of noble families use their unique magical gifts to control the fates of nations, while one young man seeks only to live a life of his own. 

Moving at a brilliant pace and pulsing with deadly intrigue and unforgettable characters, Witchmark grabs listeners and doesn't let go until the thrilling conclusion. 

Magic marked Miles Singer for suffering the day he was born, doomed either to be a slave to his family's interest or to be committed to a witches' asylum. He went to war to escape his destiny and came home a different man, but he couldn't leave his past behind. The war between Aeland and Laneer leaves men changed, strangers to their friends and family. Even after faking his own death and reinventing himself as a doctor at a cash-strapped veteran's hospital, Miles can't hide what he truly is.

Warnings would be nice...

Until my husband and I started listening to audiobooks... I had no idea that there was a whole sub-genre of fantasy epics with Male on Male tendencies. I just wish in our politically correct world that there could be warnings like at the movie theatre... WARNING... OLD people s_x scenes or Male on male s_x scenes contained within. I truly have no problem with this existing... I just want the opportunity to have a choice.

A worthwhile add

This was well written, had engaging characters and maintained an engaging momentum. Fantasy with a LGBTQ character that was relatable and easy to invest in. I enjoyed the world building and am curious to see it expanded upon. I am looking forward to more from this author. In need of a good read, I'd recommend adding this to your library.

Amazing read

This book was a wonderful suprise. It was well written and kept me engaged and guessing through out. The main characters were likeable/hateable and I'm hoping there is a sequel because it is a Great story. Cant say enough how much I liked this one.

Magical plot, world, and LGBT romance

4.5 stars
I absolutely loved this!
Anyone looking for an adorable LGBT+ romance, historical fantasy, murder mystery, that explores upper class privilege, and the consequences of war? It's right here!
The beginning was a bit tough for me because I thought it would be more historical urban fantasy, and it did vaguely resemble England after WWI, but the places and past events were all made up, and the magically system is very unique.
I loved all the characters, Tristan reminded of Howl (from Howl's Moving Castle only more put together). The murder mystery was intriguing, and I had a ton of fun finding out were it lead, and how everything tied together. What an interesting outcome it had in the end!
Miles and Tristen where so cute, and I eagerly await the next book to see what happens to them.

Great book with a poor narrator

This was a fantastic story, original and interesting. The characters were well flushed out so that you felt like you knew them. The bad guys were completely believable; what they did, although evil, is something people would do when hungry for power. The downfall of this book was the narrator. Quite often it was difficult to determine who was speaking and when the speaker changed. This was annoying to say the least. Might be a better experience in book form.

Well....

It’s a fair level first effort, and I ‘ll look at her next book. Some of the reviews I read mentioned fanfic and that’s what this reminds me of a decent fanfic. I can only recommend it as a casual read.
