Courting Magic by Stephanie Burgis

September 20, 2014
courtingCourting Magic (Kat Incorrigible 3.5by Stephanie Burgis is, to start off, delightful. You may have noticed that I am a big fan of Stephanie’s work in general. I even made a pair of earrings inspired by her second book, Renegade Magic.
Courting Magic picks up five years after the third Kat book, Stolen Magic. Kat is now a debutante getting ready for her first season. But before she can even be fitted for her first gown she is called to the Hall of the Guardians and given an assignment. Someone is stealing from the ton at parties and using magic to disguise himself as various high ranked noblemen to do so.
Kat is charged with finding and stopping him, discretely. In order to help her accomplish this the director of the Order has assigned three men to aid her; the Marquess of Lanham, the Honorable George Packenham, and Alexander, the boy who left such an impression on her five years before during the events of Stolen Magic. Although, he isn’t the boy she remembers anymore. He’s grown up and grown up well. Kat will have to tread lightly to complete her mission without losing her reputation or her heart.
This is everything I wanted from a grown up Kat. She’s still daring and unconventional, but she has also grown up. She’s got an adult’s sense of responsibility while still doing whatever needs to be done as a Guardian.
Stephanie has also managed to slip in some very interesting observations on the Season, the marriage market, and the absurdity of Regency class distinction. She has taken a period I adore and once again given me a wonderful visit with it. The novella is a very quick read, so there’s really no excuse not to pick it up and treat yourself.
Courting Magic is available for Kindle, Kobo, Smashwords, Nook, and iBooks.
