4.0 out of 5 stars Magick and Mayhem in Regency Bath, 30 July 2011
This review is from: A Tangle of Magicks (Unladylike Adventures of Kat Stephenson) (Paperback)
I think Kat Stephenson is the sort of friend I would have loved to have growing up. She gets into all sort of scrapes, but through a mixture of bravery, intelligence, talent, and sheer dumb luck, manages to find a way out. If that way out also happens to involve some hapless friends and acquaintances in a rollercoaster of an adventure, well, that's what comes from knowing Kat.

This book took a little while to get going. I thought it started at an odd place, but the setting made sense much later in the book. Much like the first Kat Stephenson book, A Most Improper Magick, once the book got going (chapter three, for me), I couldn't put it down.

I love Kat's character, her strength, her humour, and her affection for her family, despite their obvious flaws.

The setting of Bath was another plus for me, as, having been there, it was easy to imagine. Also, Bath is so intrinsically Regency that I found it a perfect choice for the historical period of the book.

The plot strands all wove together beautifully, mixed in with some Roman mythology and further insight into the Order of the Guardians.

I can't wait to see what Kat gets up to in installment number three!
