Review

A surprise from Garth Nix: A Regency romance with magic. Charming; quite, quite charming. --Gail Carriger, New York Times bestselling author of the Parasol Protectorate and the Finishing School series"

Entertaining. --Kirkus Reviews"

This romance should please the author s regular readers and Georgette Heyer fans alike. --Publishers Weekly"

A delightful romp with dastardly plots and romantic confusions that would do Jane Austen proud. Fans of the author and of fantasy or Regency romance will enjoy this tale immensely.--School Library Journal"

Part comedy of manners, part fantasy adventure, this lighthearted romp is ridiculous fun. --Booklist (starred review)"

Austen fans will be drawn to the familiar era and strong, stubborn heroine, and the touch of magic. --Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)"

It s clear that this was as much a pleasure for Nix to write as it is for readers to read, and there s reveling in arcane language that will delight wannabe Austen-esque teens. Hand this to fans of period Masterpiece Theater sagas and Burgis Kat, Incorrigible. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

Product Description

After the Newington Emerald is stolen at the height of a conjured storm, eighteen-year-old Lady Truthful Newington goes to London to search for the magical heirloom of her house. But as no well-bred young lady can hunt the metropolis for a stolen jewel, she has to disguise herself as a man, and is soon caught up in a dangerous adventure where she must risk her life, her reputation and her heart.

Balancing twin roles as a young lady coming out in her first season and as an intrepid young man up against an evil sorceress isn't easy, but Truthful has to manage it. Her father's life and even the fate of England may depend upon her recovering the Newington Emerald!
