It was a feeling like nostalgia, but for something I’d never done. Something I’d never had.


Murder! Mages! Hard-boiled detective noir meets magic school fantasy, with a dash of sibling rivalry, and scads of teen angst in "Magic for Liars" by Sarah Gailey. Aurelien reviews this trope-busting, genre-crossing mystery novel, and digs into the alluring dream of the Hogwarts letter, with call-outs to X-Men, "The Magicians", and Bewitched (1964-1972). Spoilers start around 14:00!
