Another hot hot guy in Magnus's life? Yes, yet still loveless. And I'm so sure to see more. But the adventure in here is way better than the first one. It's exciting. With the inclusion of french history. The escape of Queen Marie Antoinette, the french revolution etc. And it's funny Magnus naming his monkey after his warlock friend Ragnor. Anyway, the cute guy here is named Axel, close enough to Alec. Seriously, when will Alec really appear in this series? Can't wait to see the Alec-Magnus thing.
