Our publishers at Penguin have generously cited us as the “writers behind Magnus Flyte,” or made reference to Magnus Flyte as a pseudonym for “writers Christina Lynch and Meg Howrey.” We are not going to contradict them, but we generally prefer to think of ourselves as Magnus’s handlers.

City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte
"An unusual title, “City of Dark Magic” is the debut brainchild of Christina Lynch and Meg Howrey—writing under the pseudonym Magnus Flyte—and is a difficult book to classify into one specific genre. Murder and suspense are key, but dashes of paran..." Read more of this review »

City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte
"Enormously good fun - loved it. To be read in the spirit in which it's clearly intended - not one for the po-faced. And yes, alchemy and nookie are closely related! Chapeau, ladies ;-)"

I love this series--fantastic historical details about turn of the century Vienna. Nothing flashy here, just meticulous research, well-drawn characters, and consistently interesting mysteries.

Stunningly beautiful writing. Do yourself a favor and read this book. Slowly, while no one is bothering you. Savor every word. It's not very long, but it's very, very good.

“Only the passionate were immortal, it seemed. If you fought, screwed, screamed, laughed, or otherwise experienced life intensely, for better or worse, you left a record. Those who lived a quiet, well-behaved, well-tempered life? Gone without a trace.”
Magnus Flyte, City of Dark Magic

“What do you know that you’re not telling me?"
"I don’t know what you know, so I don’t know what you don’t know.”
