"An intriguing, not-so-different early 20th-century alternate world where magic works unobtrusively. ... Strikingly set, pleasingly peopled, and cleverly plotted."--Kirkus Reviews starred review "The setting is delightful: a never-never 1908 very like our own, where little countries with names like Galazon, Aravis and Haydock coexist with the France, England and Spain we know, and magic is taught (along with posture and geography) at Greenlaw College off the coast of Normandy. Stevermer blends these elements deftly."--The Washington Post "Stevermer proves to have a gifted touch ... To call a book an instant classic is a large hat for a novel to be forced to wear in its publishing infancy, but I don't doubt, all the same, that A College of Magics will endure as a favorite of discerning readers for a very long time indeed."

A trio of bewitching novels featuring devoted cousins who must juggle their magical powers with their duties as ladies in Regency-era England. Enter Regency-era England--and a world in which magical mayhem and high society go hand in hand--with three novels featuring cousins Cecelia and Kate. In Sorcery & Cecelia, the two cousins have been inseparable since girlhood. But in 1817, Kate goes to London to make her debut into English society, leaving Cecelia behind to fight boredom in her small country town. While visiting the Royal College of Wizards, Kate stumbles on a plot to destroy a beloved sorcerer--and only Cecelia can help her save him. In The Grand Tour, Cecelia and Kate, along with their husbands, are inaugurating married life with a trip to the Continent. When a mysterious woman in Calais gives Cecelia a package intended for Kate's mother-in-law, however, the two young wives realize they must spend their honeymoons preventing an emperor-in-exile named Napoleon from reclaiming the French crown. In The Mislaid Magician, it is 1828 and the cousins are now society matrons. The steam engine is announcing its arrival and the shaking of the locomotives begins to disrupt England's ancient, underground magical ley lines. When the disappearance of a foreign diplomat threatens to become an international incident, Cecelia departs to fight for the future of magic--leaving Kate to care for a gaggle of disobedient, spell-casting tots. Blending history, romance, and magic, these charming novels from the author of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles will delight anyone who loves Harry Potter or Susannah Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr Norell
