Frey and McGray by Oscar de Muriel


Recommended Posts

The brand new Frey and McGray - The Sign of the Devil - book is out today. It's the last one and promises to explain everything.

 

I sped through these books at a rate of knots and loved every one of them. I have my copy of the new one but not yet started it.

 

Anyone else on the forum enjoy this series and/or looking forward to this new, last one?

I'm simultaneously so sad and so excited about this final book. The series has been amazing. Every single book has been so enjoyable to read. And I really, really want to find out the answer to the mystery of

Spoiler

Pansy and the McGray family murderer!

I first heard of this series on this forum so thank you for introducing me to it!  I've read the first two so far and am spacing them out - though it is tempting to read them all in one go - but I like to make something this good last longer!  Planning to read the 3rd one for a Halloween read so a little way off yet.

 

It's such a great series, well written and at times some of the dialogue is laugh out loud, but it's dramatic and yes a bit gruesome at times too, though not too much.  Great fun and I love the characters, they are real ripping yarns.

 

And yes it will be great to find out how the main story arc plays out in the end.

It is, isn't it!?

That's a good plan! I might try to wait until then to read the last book... but it feels a long way away at the moment!

This is a really good way to describe them! For me it's also the elements of Victorian gothic that make them particularly intriguing.

It reminded me straightaway of a Victorian sort of X files, with the back story about his family and the mystery of what happened, and the secrecy of McGrey's department which isn't meant to exist.

 

Only two books into the series and they are already feeling like old friends.

They do.  I'm missing mine. I read them all last year, having found one on my father's TBR and I gave away all of the paperbacks because I din't think that I'd want to read them again, and I do! I bought the e-book versions instead and will re-read them all.
