Clearly, magic is a deadly and dangerous business. And the girls might be in fear for their lives . . . if only they weren't having so much fun!
; Highly recommended, especially for those that enjoy some magic with their Regency novels. :o) For ages 12 and up. Recommended by Jerri C. of the ATS and the AT and DES email discussion groups. "One of my favourite books....Regency plus magic." - Elizabeth B. of the DES email discussion group.
