Aug 07, Alyssa rated it really liked it. I think part of my issue with this book was the main heroine. Then the cast began to expand It is usually marketed for young adults.
The relationship between her and Mairelon grows a lot throughout the two novels, but they retain their awesome dynamic throughout – Kim keeping Mairelon out of trouble with considerable eye-rolling and exasperation, while Mairelon’s absentminded good-nature is both endearing and amusing.
Lover of Thorns and Holy Gods. I was waiting for the romantic tension to start, like the characters glancing into each others eyes and looking away, or one of them noticing how nice the other looks, or a spark between them while they are dancing.
The plot was not as complicated as the first half of the book making it a lot easier to understand.
A Matter of Magic (Mairelon, #) by Patricia C. Wrede
Refresh and try again. I couldn’t wait for it to be over. So the first book was pretty average as far as I was concerned, and it wasn’t helped by the fact that Kim could have been anywhere between 8 magif The story in book 1 was slow to mwgic for me. A Study in Sable. If any of those things is NOT to your liking, this is not really a book for you, but if you think all of that sounds nice, you’ll likely enjoy this book these two novellas on a quiet day.

The first part of the book, originally Mairelon the Magician, I found entertaining, but at times confusing. Sep 29, Tammie rated it liked it Shelves: But then there was a shoehorned romance that went from 0 to “we’re getting married” in like a chapter. Overall, I enjoy the characters. Then one day she meets a member of the Quality disguised as a street magician, and they have lots of adventures. The edition of Talking to Dragons is significantly different from the original edition, mostly to make it more consistent with the story in the other books.
Kate’s favorite cousin, Cecelia Rushton “Cecy”has been left at home with her brother Oliver and their father, katter antiquarian Arthur Rushton, at Rushton Manor. In it, wede meet nobleman Richard Merrill, aka Mairelon, who is in hiding as a traveling magician because he was framed for a crime. The dialog was horrible and page after page was filled with what could have been said in less than one.
A Matter of Magic
A Matter of Magic started out fun and captivating, until the dialogue sets in. This is definitely a Georgette Heyer romance novel infused with magic. That said, this is a book or books, I suppose that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages and interests; this will satisfy fans of fantasy, historical fiction, paatricia good mystery and a spot of romance.
How to write a great review.
The mystery takes a more secondary role, but it still very important to the overall story, which I appreciate. Kate’s parents, George Talgarth and Celia Rushton, have both died at least five years before.
It gave the story a unique voice that set it apart from others in the genre. Apr 28, Lee Anne rated it it was amazing Shelves: Rebecca rated it did not like it Aug 27, The Reaper Rescues The Genie.
