Allmänna fakta



Delightful. It's like reading Georgette Heyer but with magic.

Took me a while to get through this one. I bought it during the spring and finished it in November. It's a bit of a slow, dry read, but the characters and premise are interesting enough to keep you going. The plot soon takes a turn and picks up speed... but ultimately I felt the story left more questions than answers. The whole theme seems to be the nature of magic, but magic in this world is never really explained. Perhaps because there's a second book? We shall see.

10/21/2023 I read this book some 15 years ago, per my records, but I was surprised that I remembered barely anything about it (that's unusual for me). This time, I "got" the story. I liked it much better. It made more sense to me somehow. I suspect it will stick.

It isn't a difficult story -- more or less ordinary girl finds out she isn't as ordinary as she thought, that her life and her future aren't what she thought they would be, people around her are more than she thought, and so forth. It turned a lot of tropes over on their sides, which was good, but used them as tropes. It's clever, it's fun, it's thoughtful. and it's a good read.… (mer)

I discovered this book when I was a teenager and it remains a delightful comfort read for me. The epistolary style is fun, especially with two different authors. It can sort of muddy up the story a bit in places, but it won't stop me from coming back to this book again when I just need to curl up with some tea and a fun and charming book.
