Reviews

Burgis' debut title rides on its swift pace and the delightfully feisty Kat, whose fearless and frequently impulsive actions will have readers cheering her on. --Booklist

Regency romance and fantasy adventure all in one, this is a satisfying read and a promising beginning to a trilogy that is sure to be popular with middle school girls.

- SLJ


"Romance, humor and magic mark this brisk debut novel, the first of a trilogy set in an alternative Regency England.... Burgis's command of the conventions of the genre is evident in characterization and plot, putting every element in place for a genteel romp.... Luckily, Kat is on hand to interfere with everyone's plans. Enjoyable mayhem ensues."

--Kirkus Reviews
"Set in nineteenth-century England, this is a delightful story about a courageous, spirited, loveable girl who refuses to conform to society's expectations. There's plenty of humor, romance, and mystery as Kat cuts off her hair, disguises herself as a boy, and turns the lives of those around her upside down."

--VOYA, February 2012
