Availability: Ready to download

How do you catch an elusive thief? There is nothing more delightful than a bookfaire with his lady love. At least, until Henri learns that a grimoire belonging to the dangerous Reaper’s Set has been stolen without its protective box. When Henri and Jamie go looking for answers, they are horrified to discover more than one volume has been stolen without its protective box. Ja How do you catch an elusive thief? There is nothing more delightful than a bookfaire with his lady love. At least, until Henri learns that a grimoire belonging to the dangerous Reaper’s Set has been stolen without its protective box. When Henri and Jamie go looking for answers, they are horrified to discover more than one volume has been stolen without its protective box. Jamie has never seen Henri so livid or frightened. The spells in the grimoires, unchecked, are powerful enough to make a building melt. Literally. Melt. They need to find them quickly, for the war-era grimoires could tear the city apart--and have already gotten a head start. With the thief nowhere to be found and still stealing grimoires, Jamie, Henri, and Seaton are more than ready to catch him. Please. And thank you.

    Strawberry fields forever is now on repeat in my brain. Highly recommend this book, the preceding stories and everything else I've read by the author. What a fantastic story.

Although no time for girls night, have to save the city! Everything proceeds at a fast pace, although the characters would have like events to have resolved faster and without the exhausting cleanup. Definitely a case of thefts requiring the magic and investigative smarts of the magical examiners, detectives and kingsmen. Advice, don't be ignorant with magical items unless you want lectures. We're several years into Jamie's presence in the world and it shows in everyone's comfort level with her and each other. And Henri has friends! The important relationship continues to progress at a comfortable pace. Earth items have been sent and acted upon. Interesting reaction by earth items to magical manipulation. Read. Enjoy. Start with book one or start here then go back and catch up. Except for Jules, he's way overdue on a Felix or two for Regina and needs to focus. cross posted goodreads, amazon, bookbub

    Fun, fantastical read with mystery and magic. I needed a light, fun crime fiction to read, and here it is, complete with delightful characters and three adorable Felixes. If you’re a newbie, this is not a stand-alone, because there’s a story arc, recurring characters, and a magical but sorta steampunk-ish world. This book has an intriguing storyline. Valuable, one-of-a-kind books are stolen from dealers at book faires, from private homes, and even from Queen Regina’s Palace Library. Amongst the Fun, fantastical read with mystery and magic.

Valuable, one-of-a-kind books are stolen from dealers at book faires, from private homes, and even from Queen Regina’s Palace Library. Amongst the missing books are several one-of-a-kind grimoires—dangerous ones with no magical bindings. Each grimoire could wreak havoc on its own, due to powerful spells, hexes, charms, and magical inks contained within. What could possibly go wrong? Only unimaginable, terrible things that shock even the most powerful of magicians. I had a few quibbles to do with characters and events, but I ignored all to fly through this book. I hope there will soon be an audiobook version. Overall, rollicking good fun. Suggest a copy editor for homonyms, skipped words, and miscellaneous grammar problems.

    Great story Love, love, love this series! Jamie, Henri, and the gang are up to their eyeballs in magical mayhem in this story of stolen grimoires. Luckily this story doesn't suffer the odd discrepancies that plagued my enjoyment of the last book. All must be well in the editorial universe again, thank heavens because not being able to properly enjoy one of these stories is tragic. This story had lots to enjoy, including the developing relationship between Jamie and Henri. We also get to hear from Great story Love, love, love this series!

    Since the first, I've enjoyed the Henri Davenforth files, and this doesn't change with this book. The only complaint I really have, is that they feel like they're getting shorter. Henri and Jaime are on a rare day off, at the book faire. While buying a book the seller recognizes the Shinigami Detective's name, and asks to report a stolen grimoire. When Henri finds out that this was ignored by another officer the seller was trying to report it to, he is very upset.

    Jamie and Henri go to the Book Fair on their day off, only to find that a thief is also there and he's stolen a powerful grimoire without it's magical containment box. This is super dangerous and they have a short deadline before things will go catastrophically wrong. Why I started this book: Really enjoy this series and was eager to see how things would progress. Why I finished it: Turns out, that my favorite things about the series is the fish out of water, learning to adjust to a new situation/ Jamie and Henri go to the Book Fair on their day off, only to find that a thief is also there and he's stolen a powerful grimoire without it's magical containment box.

    More Please! This series is one of my favorites and this latest addition is just as enjoyable as its predecessors. I love seeing Jamie in love and truly acclimating to her new life. That's part of the fun with this author, her ideas and plots always surprise and delight. The plot machinations were a bit lighter than other stories but wholly in keeping with the series. This is one series I hope lasts forever! More Please! This series is one of my favorites and this latest addition is just as enjoyable as its predecessors.

    The author has delivered another hair-raising and hair-tugging mystery thriller for us impatient eager amateur armchair sleuths. I love the banal nature of the crime itself with the author's signature twist to create yet more near-apocalyptic consequences. Stupid criminals are not always a boon to the police - as the author demonstrates again. My sympathies to Jamie, Henri and Seaton and their various associates - stupidity of this type has to be seen to be believed!

    A wonderful addition to the series Jamie Henri and the 3 Felixes have a new case: stolen from pride that if improperly stored will create a serious hazmat situation. It was great fun to reconnect with the crew. And a read that I really needed in a stressful year. If you are unfamiliar with the Shinagami detective start with the first book in the series. These books are delightful.

I was reading this on my Kindle, and I cackled madly whenever the Kindle Problem was brought up 😂. Also, the Felixes are adorable, as always. I feel like this case was a lot more frustrating for the characters, if only because there was more idiocy involved. They were just so done throughout most of the book. I felt really sorry for them. But at least there were strawberries!

    Mystery of books As an avid reader, it's delightful to have a mystery featuring stolen books, portrayed as the dangerous items they are. Like the previous books in this series, Grimoires is a serious police procedural lightened with fun friendships, magical experiments, engineering 21st century tech in a magical world, and cats. Talking, smart, magic cats. Mystery of books As an avid reader, it's delightful to have a mystery featuring stolen books, portrayed as the dangerous items they are.

    What fun! Jaimie and Henri and crew delight me on every page of every book and this book is one exception. How Ms Raconteur mages to take Our Earth ‘magic’ and turn it into magic on another planet simply amazes me. Add in police detective work, shifters and the royal police and all sorts of unusual cases to resolve result. Wonderful to read.

    Excellent! Honor did not disappoint! I have to admit that while I haven’t read all of her books (yet) I have loved and enjoyed every one I have read! Please start at the beginning and join in on the fun of a GREAT series! Thank you Honor and all the editors and other amazing people for a great book! It is truly truly appreciated.

    Sympathetic villain Excellent end to the series. I find myself hoping to find prequels set in the same worlds. I was struck by how much I felt for the villain, who unwittingly caused such enormous damage and trauma all because, "but it was so pretty!" Oh, dear. And I'd very much like a sequel, too. Jamie and Henry need a wedding! Sympathetic villain Excellent end to the series. I find myself hoping to find prequels set in the same worlds.

    Ever better I love this series, truly one of the best series’ out there. I just wish I didn’t devour this in a day so I wouldn’t have to wait until the next one! Lol We get to see a different side of Henri in this book, he always seemed like such a loner I loved it.

    Still fun! And it was kind of nice getting both new characters and having a few established characters come back for yet another adventure. I hope there is a seventh book coming. I’m not ready for this series to end!

    A great read. A great story but an abrupt ending. They were seeking a mastermind theif, one they couldn't find. But---then he makes stupid mistakes. Which is he? A master thief or a dunce? I would have expected a more difficult task finding him. A great read. A great story but an abrupt ending. They were seeking a mastermind theif, one they couldn't find.

    Fun easy read Always a fun and easy read - I look forward to each edition of this series. It hits fantasy, buddy cop, mystery, and good dialogue spots for me. The outrage at the poor treatment of books was particularly amusing (and understandable) in this story. Good times.
