Format: Mass Market Paperback
A light and very funny fantasy about a thief, a sorceror, and an enchanted serving set. The lodge scene later in the book was a bit confusing, with too many characters and not enough identity to them (or at least, not enough time spent to clearly define them in the reader's mind), and I wish more had been revealed about the magical items in question, but otherwise I enjoyed 'Mairelon' a great deal.
I think Doctor Who fans might want to check it out as well; the relationship between Mairelon and Kim is a very Doctor/companion-ish one, and Mairelon himself is suitably mysterious, eccentric, and possesses all the other qualities we love the Doctor for. Think of it as one of his historical adventures, possibly with Paul McGann in the title role.

I thought this book was great! It had an original plot that was both amusing and satisfying. I have faithfully read regencies by two other authors-Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, and Patricia C. Wrede DOES NOT plagiarize her ideas. Georgette Heyer did extensive research to ensure the authenticity of her characters' dialogue and her stories' plots, so it is not surprising that Wrede's character's speak in the same dialect. After all they are both set in the same time period and same place. Wrede's characters, manage to say things without being too wordy and still have the Regency feel to them. Wrede incorporates magic into English society as if it actually did exist as a science. This work was wonderfully entertaining as well as being as authentic and "realistic" as a fantasy novel could be.
