1925 New York
Psychometric Rory Brodigan’s life hasn’t been the same since the day he met Arthur Kenzie. Arthur’s continued quest to contain supernatural relics that pose a threat to the world has captured Rory’s imagination—and his heart. But Arthur’s upper-class upbringing still leaves Rory worried that he’ll never measure up, especially when Arthur’s aristocratic ex arrives in New York.
For Arthur, there’s only Rory. But keeping the man he’s fallen for safe is another matter altogether. When a group of ruthless paranormals throw the city into chaos, the two men’s strained relationship leaves Rory vulnerable to a monster from Arthur’s past.
With dark forces determined to tear them apart, Rory and Arthur will have to draw on every last bit of magic up their sleeves. And in the end, it’s the connection they’ve formed without magic that will be tested like never before.
Starcrossed was a great continuation of Rory and Arthur's story. It was wonderful to spend time with these characters again and the book was packed with plenty of action and romance. The plot continued to hold my interest and I turned the final page eager to know how things would finally work out for all the characters and whether they would defeat the evil plans afoot. Rory and Arthur's relationship development was well handled and I found their private interactions a joy to read. I am certainly keen to see how things will pan out in book three. I recommend this series for fans of paranormal and/or historical LGBT fiction, but you will need to start at book one in order to properly follow the story in this second volume.
I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
