bookshelves: fantasy-scifi, regencyish-romancish
Read in January, 2011

A Matter of Magic takes place in a Regency-with-magic world similar to Patricia C. Wrede's Enchanted Chocolate Pot books with Caroline Stevermer. It's actually two novels, Mairelon the Magician and The Magician's Ward. Both stories involve mysteries that I don't bother to follow - it's the setting and the characters that make the book so enjoyable.

The book is like a Georgette Heyer, complete with earls, reticules and romance, with the addition of magic. Kim is an orphan who has been living disguised as a boy on the streets of London. Then one day she meets a member of the Quality disguised as a street magician, and they have lots of adventures.
