This book is in two parts, half about a lady wizard and the other half about a female thief. Both were appealing characters but the wizard was best in my view. I hope Ms Huff writes more stories about both of them. I enjoy her 'Keeper' books and I am glad I picked this one up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huff in excellent form 24 Dec. 2012
By Cissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved these stories. I'd read a couple of them before, but they stood up well to re-reading.

While I liked the thief stories, I loved the ones about Magdalene, the world's most powerful and laziest wizard, with a definite eye for the beefcake. All of these were a hoot. I have as much admiration for Magdalene as i do for Pratchett's Nanny Ogg, and that is high praide indeed! I was delighted to have new-to-me stories to read about her.

The "Ace doubles style" format was fun, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Tanya Huff fans! 19 Dec. 2010
By Carolene Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Tanya Huff fans will be delighted with this duo selection. Only Huff could come up with a character like Magdelene, the lazy, good hearted, man hungry wizard--- who also is the most powerful human being alive. The contrast between Magdelene, who when faced with a man eating demon, crosses her arms across her chest and looks its in the eye and your expectations about how powerful wizards should act is hilarious. (By the way, the demon took one good look and headed back home)

Terazin, on the other hand, is a clever thief--that is only the beginning. Her world lives. The supporting characters are real and in Huff's fashion, worth knowing.

This collection of short stories are page turners and leave you feverishly hopeing that the author writes many, many more about both.
4.0 out of 5 stars Silly format with solid content 9 Feb. 2013
By Jpreacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Setting aside the irritatingly quirky format (this book contains two sets of unrelated stories, bound back-to-back and flipped upside down, which... no) this is a solid collection. I was slightly disappointed to figure out that the thief side consists of the four Terazin stories from Relative Magic, and one of the wizard stories I'd read... somewhere else, but the rest of the wizard set was charming and funny and entirely worthwhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars funny, fitty and an extremely plesant reading 23 Nov. 2006
By Akela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very nice collection of stories. I admit I prefer Magdelene - somehow the idea of being idle, enjoying sun and dolce far niente all the while being THE most powerful wizard on earth, is very appealing. So very refreshing to have a perfectly lazy heroine who does not suffer from heart pangs, unhappy love, "save-the-world" complex and takes life, magic and men as something to be relaxed about.

The stories about Terazin are equally good but her nature is very different - there is quite a lot of the Rikki-Tiki-Tavi's "run and find out" attitude that sometimes leads her into difficulties.

I wish the publisher would make their mind about the name: many times the thief is called Terizan instead of Terazin. In fact it happens so often, that I was not sure about the correct form till the very end.

In whole, a very nice light book with lots of humor and very endearing heroines.
5.0 out of 5 stars Utterlydelightful 12 Oct. 2015

How did this sit on my bookshelf for so long? I picked it up maybe 7 years after buying it last week, and loved it. I could have kept reading about Magdalene the wizard... Wish there were more stories!
