"I was twelve years of age when I chopped off my hair, dressed as a boy, and set off to save my family from impending ruin. I made it almost to the end of my front garden . . ."
Magic may be the greatest scandal in Regency England. But that's not going to stop Kat Stephenson when there are highwaymen to foil, sinister aristocrats to defeat . . . and true loves to capture for her two older sisters.
A Most Improper Magick Paperback edition by Stephanie Burgis
Stephanie Burgis grew up in East Lansing, Michigan, but fell in love with Regency England when she discovered the novels of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer. Her book A MOST IMPROPER MAGICK won the Waverton Good Read Children's Award. It was also chosen by Booktrust for its 2012 Bookbuzz book-gifting scheme for Year 7 students across the UK. In addition, it was longlisted for the Branford Boase Award and for the British Fantasy Award for Best Fantasy Novel. Stephanie decided to be a writer when she was seven and sold her first short story when she was fifteen. She lives with her husband - fellow writer Patrick Samphire - their son, and their dog in Wales. Visit her at www.stephanieburgis.com or on Twitter: @stephanieburgis.
Sofia is the other princess. Not the crown princess - that's her perfect big sister, Katrin. Sofia is the princess who always says the wrong thing; who hates going to parties; who doesn't like people; who just wants to sit and read her books. So when Sofia is shipped off on a stomach-churning dragon flight to make another royal visit, she decides it's time for this princess to take a little break....
"I was twelve years of age when I chopped off my hair, dressed as a boy, and set off to save my family from impending ruin. I made it almost to the end of my front garden . . But that's not going to stop Kat Stephenson when there are highwaymen to foil, sinister aristocrats to defeat . . .
Carlo Morelli, a castrato, visits the Eszterhaza Palace and meets up with Charlotte von Steinbeck, the sister of Prince Nikolaus's mistress, as they join forces in uncovering a plot to assassinate the Hapsburg Emperor and Empress.
When a scandalous accusation threatens her second sister's prospects and forces the family to hide from gossip and secure a suitable engagement in Bath, Kat is unexpectedly cast out of the Order of Guardians, raising questions about Lord Ravenscroft and forcing her to test the boundaries of her magic. Reprint.
