Pressestimmen

Praise for City of Lost Dreams by Magnus Flyte:

“Set in a world where alchemy, magic, and science all work, [City of Lost Dreams is] another lively, amusing romantic mystery from the pseudonymous Flyte. . . . Sensual, witty, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, set forth in sparkling prose, and inhabited by characters well-worth getting to know. Wunderbar!"
Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

"Enchanting, strange, and fantastical! City of Lost Dreams is a magical mystery tour that picks you up and takes you where you’ve never been before but is exactly where you want to be. Sexy, suspenseful, historical—a mélange of originality and an absolute page-turner."
M.J. Rose, international bestselling author of Seduction

“A blend of urban fantasy, romantic comedy, and time-travel adventure, with an extra twist of weirdness . . . Lots of fun.”
Booklist

“If you’re looking for a time-travel mystery with laughs, danger, and a romantic interest clad in lederhosen (and who isn’t?), look no further.”
People (4 Stars)

Praise for City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte:

"This deliciously madcap novel has it all: murder in Prague, time travel, a misanthropic Beethoven, tantric sex, and a dwarf with attitude. I salute you, Magnus Flyte!”
—Conan O’Brian
 
“A comical, rollicking and sexy thriller.”
Huffington Post
 
“An entertaining mix of magic, mystery and romance, it’s one of the most original novels released this year.”
—CNN.com
 
“Never fails to shimmer exotically, erotically, on the page.”
Slate

EXCELLENT NEW FANTASY COLLECTION 4. Dezember 2013
Von Robert Steven Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you haven't read City of Dark Magic, the prequel to this book, you might want to order and read it first. This book and its prequel are excellent fiction and the author exhibits a good deal of original thinking and creative fantasy. In some ways it resembles the "Golden Compass Trilogy," but is quite extraordinary and unique in its own right. Written for all age groups, it would also make a great gift for someone you know who is a science fiction fan.

CITY OF LOST DREAMS - A QUICK LOOK! 30. November 2013
Von the GreatReads! - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
City of Lost Dreams by Magnus Flyte, a pseudonym for the writing duo of Meg Howrey and Christina Lynch Howrey, who is also the author of the hugely successful book City of Dark Magic, is a bit of everything you want a book to be. It is almost magical in many ways. You have immortal dwarves, time-bending drug, mysterious murder, enchanting sequences, and great locales which are simply amazing. The book encompasses different genres – music, history, mystery, fantasy, thriller, drama, romance and adventure – it is a fusion truly well done!

The story is well crafted, and the characters are truly adorable and amazingly memorable. The book is a worthy upshot to City of Dark Magic. It continues to follow the story of Sarah Weston, Nicolas Pertusato and Prince Max, who are now trying to save Pollina, who is gravely ill. Sarah, Nico and Max are desperately searching for a cure. They zipped across cities, encounter myriads of difficulties but as the saying goes, all’s well that ends well. The action is fast-paced, and penetrating. The author superbly uses the reader’s sympathy for Pollina to reinforce the tension, and keeps you turning the pages as fast as the beat of your heart.

The story is just mesmerizing. I love the blend of history with the present. The characters are well developed and have great personalities. I feel like I would love to have people like them in my life and those characters are hard to come by.

the City was fabulous! 25. Februar 2014
Von -MV - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This story was well imagined. It was refreshing that the author(s?) did not feel compelled to marry off the hero & heroine right after the 1st book in the series. I sure hope there are further stories, especially now that Nicholas has his "choices".

Magnus Flyte is a delight 2. März 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed City of Dark Magic very much and anticipated reading City of Lost Dreams. For me, the setting, the musical background and the history were inspiring in the first book but the second book became a little too formulaic, drama-and-angst driven and for a story that became character-driven, it lacked any character maturity and the characters started becoming more two-dimensional puppets with predictable reactions.

To be fair, my husband still enjoyed the second book and disagrees with me. I should also point out that I will continue to look forward to any additional Magnus Flyte stories.
