3,5 starsSo good to see Crane and Stephen again. <3 It's been waaaayyy too long.The story within this little snippet was really intriguing and could have been expanded on more. Obviously with only 30 pages, there is not much room to get into the details, but this one certainly could have been it's own book.No magpies present in this one :( but the magical connections towards the end were lovely.
There was, suddenly, a pressure against his fingers. It was like a hand, but with none of Stephen’s electric touch, and neither warm nor cold.
He glanced down, startled, and saw nothing. Stephen’s hands were demurely folded on his lap.
“Is that you?”
“It is.” The invisible clasp firmed, stroking his skin.
Worth the read on the Magpie journey...now onto #3...FINALLY!!
