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

5.0 von 5 Sternen 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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Better than the first one! 3. Dezember 2013
Von chanda ekker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
City of Lost Dreams, the sequel to City of Dark Magic, surprised me by surpassing its predecessor on every level. I wish I had a 3.5 star option! The first book left me divided, feeling let down by some aspects and really loving the potential existing in others. Ambivalence is resolved in this second installment! The potential in City of Dark Magic is fully delivered in City of Lost Dreams. The heroine is more capable, easier to love. You get to know lovable Nico much better and get a sense for what he faces in his peculiarly long, long life. And Max...there's a character a girl can have a book crush on ;0). Flyte creates the character depth in this one that is missing in the first one, allowing the reader to emotionally invest in the fate of the characters in a way that wasn't possible in City of Dark Magic. Though not entirely removed, the bizarre sex scenes that were so disruptive in City of Dark Magic were less abundant in City of Lost Dreams. Add in the exciting and unexpectedly twisty ending and you have a winner in City of Lost Dreams!

One of the things I love about reading across all genres of fiction is the opportunity to pick up something of value in what appears to be the unlikeliest place. I wasn't disappointed when I found the "life lesson" I'm always on the lookout for anytime I have a book in hand. This particular gem, delivered from the mouth of Pollina, young musical genius in need of a miracle, reminds City of Lost Dreams heroine of what's really important when she says, "Don't put such stock in this physical body. [...] Passion, in all its forms, that's what endures." Well said and an excellent reminder. I wasn't sure I would follow the work of Magnus Flyte after City of Dark Magic but coming off a City of Lost Dreams high, I can be counted among the many, many fans.

3.0 von 5 Sternen 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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another crazy adventure awaits! 19. Dezember 2013
Von Victoria (aka Zemfirka) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
For this review and more please visit my blog - Zemfirka Blogs.

“I'm sorry to bother you but it's an emergency," she told Alessandro. "I need a drug test.” City of Lost Dreams (p. 86).

What a trip this novel is! I’m pleasantly surprised and happy I gave Magnus Flyte another chance as City of Lost Dreams is a much improved, fast-paced and exciting novel. The returning cast of characters gain needed dimension as they continue on in their quest to find the Golden Fleece and in increasingly desperate attempt try save life of the young, blind, music prodigy – Pollina, whose health has deteriorated drastically since last time we saw her. What lies ahead is a web of elements that somehow balance together to create this unconventional, drug-infused, time-traveling journey through time and history, with a sprinkle of magic, questions of immortality, drive, passion and more. So buckle up and prepare for an outside the box tour of Prague and Vienna with Sarah Weston and friends.

“This was always the way things were in Prague: mysterious, watery, elusive. It was like the minute you got off the plane here, all firm ground dissolved. And you did crazy things. Like falling in love.” City of Lost Dreams (p. 19).

This time around Sarah returns to Prague to help find cure for Pollina’s illness, but as fate would have it, Prague is surrounded by mysterious forces and nothing goes as planned. At dinner with Nico and Max a strange event takes place and Sarah somehow ends up in the middle of it all. But no time to investigate as Sarah is off to Vienna to track down the brilliant yet recalcitrant biochemist – Bettina Müller who might be able to help Pollina, while Nico and Max continue their own search. Yet, as they pursue further only more mysteries seem to amount and time is quickly running out…

“We’ve got to try everything, no matter how crazy it sounds. I wasn’t ready before, but I am now. I’m ready for the f***ing witchcraft, you know. Bring on the witchcraft.” City of Lost Dreams (p. 191).

City of Lost Dreams is a crazy yet exhilarating journey. It’s not perfect. There are way too many elements, events and characters throughout the novel that it is cumbersome to keep them all straight, but at the same time they add richness and dimension. I wished we got to see them explored further but alas there wasn’t time – things were moving so fast. I also missed seeing Sarah and Max together as they spent most of the novel apart from each other – an unfortunate circumstance in my opinion. While Nico and Pollina were the stars with plenty of wisdom and advice to offer our heroine. However, what really made this novel shine was its maniacally devious villain, whose reveal was quite predictable and in turn less satisfying, yet I couldn’t help but be fascinated with him/her. Not to give anything further away, I’ll just say that aside all of its stumbles I really enjoyed this novel and hope to see more of Sarah, Max, Nico, and Pollina as they continue their adventures.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Glad to have another in the series 17. Februar 2014
Von Lisa E. Archbold - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Enjoyable read but I found the first book in the series more engaging. Was glad to see all the old characters back as they ground the story. I am looking forward to the next (hopefully).
