A Reckless Magick, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


With only days to go before her sister Angeline's long-delayed wedding to Frederick Carlyle, the impetuous Kat Stephenson has resigned herself to good behaviour.

But Kat's initiation into the magical Order of the Guardians is fast approaching, and trouble seems to follow her everywhere.

Kat must contend with the wretched Mrs. Carlyle's attempts to humiliate her sister, the arrival of the mysterious Marquise de Valmont, who bears a suspicious resemblance to Kat's late mother, and Frederick's bewitching cousin Jane, who has Charles Stephenson tripping over his feet.

But when a menacing boy with powerful magic starts hunting Kat, a dastardly villain tries to kill Angeline, and the Guardians face a magical robbery that could spell the end of their Order, propriety becomes the least of Kat's concerns.

Can Kat save her sister's life, the Order of the Guardians, and England itself before it's too late?

Review by

Charming regency magic story. Kat is getting older, her second sister is getting married despite objections from the prospective groom's mother who is determined that he shall marry his cousin. Kat is being stalked by magic and is trying to find a way to be a dutiful daughter and keep her magic practice going, her mentor thinks the worst of her.<br/><br/>She is also trying to work out what the mysterious Marquise has to do with her mother and why her life has to be so complicated.<br/><br/>Fun, Kat does rush in where angels fear to tread but she also has a good heart and a determination to do good and to do the right thing, as well as meddle in her family's lives, for their own good, of course. Enjoyable and I hope to read more by this author.
