A Power Unbound is the final entry in Freya Marske's beloved, award-winning Last Binding trilogy, the queer historical fantasy series that began with A Marvellous Light.
"A breathtaking romp of a plot, prose as sparkling and luxuriant as a diamond sautoir, and at the heart of it all a sense of wondrous possibility."The New York Times on A Restless Truth

"Stunningthe writing is lush, the world-building is fascinating, and the romance is searing hot. I am completely obsessed with this story of unrepentantly dangerous people falling in love with one another."Cat Sebastian, author of The Queer Principles of Kit Webb

Secrets! Magic! Enemies to. . .something more?
Jack Alston, Lord Hawthorn, would love a nice, safe, comfortable life. After the death of his twin sister, he thought he was done with magic for good. But with the threat of a dangerous ritual hanging over every magician in Britain, he's drawn reluctantly back into that world.
Now Jack is living in a bizarre puzzle-box of a magical London townhouse, helping an unlikely group of friends track down the final piece of the Last Contract before their enemies can do the same. And to make matters worse, they need the help of writer and thief Alan Ross.
Cagey and argumentative, Alan is only in this for the money. The aristocratic Lord Hawthorn, with all his unearned power, is everything that Alan hates. And unfortunately, Alan happens to be everything that Jack wants in one gorgeous, infuriating package.
When a plot to seize unimaginable power comes to a head at Cheetham HallJack's ancestral family estate, a land so old and bound in oaths that it's grown a personality as prickly as its ownerJack, Alan and their allies will become entangled in a night of champagne, secrets, and bloody sacrifice . . . and the foundations of magic in Britain will be torn up by the roots before the end.
A Macmillan Audio production from Tor.com.

I'm not gonna say this is high art, but I had a great time and stayed up late to finish it. Jack's feelings about his sister were especially well done, and I appreciated the misdirection with respect to how the inevitable "betrayal!" twist went down --- hey, he didn't have to spend the rest of the book proving himself to be worthy of his love interest! I was not surprised that the answer to the Last Contract was going to be the end of magic as they knew it, but I was a bit surprised at how ~Dramatique~ the action scenes got. ( )

From a plot point of view, this was a satisfying ending to the series, but reading wise it was kind of meh.
While the beginning started of exciting and fast paced, the story slowed down a lot with not really that much happening compared with the other two books.
There was a lot of waiting and not much actual doing. The show down at the end was worth though to finish reading.
And even though I do understand that Ms Marske wanted to concentrate in each book on a different romantic pairing, it does not really work in this instalment. In the first book we had only Robin and Edward, in the second only Maud and Violet, but now we have the third pairing while the other two pairs are around but getting no attention really which is kind of frustrating as I of course would have loved to hear what they are doing now in their day to day life for example.
Also, Jack was in the first two books the mysterious broody character but there is something with his pairing up, which rubs me the wrong way, without being really able to say why. Maybe the whole set up feels too forced? (The sex scenes are much better than the one from the first book though, much less cringy, here Ms Marske grew a lot in her writing.)
I have to say, that curious enough, the second book is my fave, then the first and this one I liked the least. ( )

suitable ending to the series ( )

This is not a review. Other people's reviews are good. I like the overall spirit and direction. I just want to say...there is no foreshadowing. And maybe it is a different enough world that history won't unfold in the same direction. But always in my mind, reading about these young people, particularly men, in England in 1909, is the looming slaughter of the War. ( )

A very satisfying end to this series. ( )
