The Lion Lies Waiting by Glenn Quigley is packed full of LGBTQ+ characters and has an undercurrent of romance, but its main focus is on the stunning historical fantasy world Mr. Quigley created and the many intriguing characters within it.

This is book two in a series put out by Ninestar Press. I’m usually a bit hesitant to read books in a series, unless it’s book one. However, I was thoroughly pleased to find this book did a wonderful job of standing alone. I didn’t find myself confused or left

I had such a good time with Mr. Quigley's first novel, The Moth and The Moon, that I couldn't wait to get my hands on the second story that continues to follow the adventures of Robin Shipp. This historical fantasy set in the 18th Century revolves around a cast of characters in an age where the sexual orientation of the townsfolk isn't a scandalous item to be discussed. In other words, it's a common thing for same-sex relationships to exist. Folks are just as likely to pair with someone of the s ...more

The Lion Lies Waiting by Glenn Quigley
Sequel to The Moth and the Moon

Historical Fantasy set in a time that never was...or a time that was but never was as this book portrayed it. In this story 1780 was a time that allowed couples to form and live and love according to their own preferences without prejudice and with acceptance by those around them.

As for the story…

Edwin is called by his widowed sister-in-law to come deal with his difficult rather crazy sounding mother. He asks his partner, Robi

Awww.... Love, love, love. So good! Especially the last quarter of the book. It kept gaining momentum, and ended really strong. So much love for our dear Robin Shipp - and Edwin, and Duncan, and everyone else in Blashy Cove. This book took some of the Merryapple folk on an adventure to Blackrabbit Island, and things got pretty intense! O.O
I adore the world building, and Mr. Quiqley's alternate universe version of these islands off the Cornish coast. There's some steampunk elements that are very

A grand follow up to The Moth and The Moon, though perhaps not quite so engaging for me.
We still have the delightfully quirky island universe where there is no religion, same sex partnerships are accepted, marriage is for all, bits of fancy, bits of steampunk and definite hints of celtic festivals. As well as politics poverty and murder.
Robin and Edwin travel to Blackrabbit to sort out Edwin’s mum and sister in law and get pulled into alsorts which tests their feelings. Robin continues to be the
