The Lovereading4Kids comment

Unruly Kat Stephenson, the delightful heroine of A Most Improper Magick is back for a second feisty adventure. The family are now in Bath where Elissa, Kat’s far more proper sister, is all set to be married. But Kat has other things on her mind. Magic! Kat finds Bath full of wild magic and it takes her energy and daring – and the help of her brother – to defuse a plot to harness the magic in the Roman baths. Kat’s effervescent personality is as vibrant as before and her particular blend of magic delights.

A Tangle of Magicks by Stephanie Burgis

After her antics in A Most Improper Magick, Kat Stephenson is back to cause more chaos! Stepmama drags the family to Bath to find Kat's sister a new suitor. But, unknown to most of its gossipy visitors, Bath is full of wild magic. When Kat uncovers a plot to harness this magic in the Roman Baths, she finds her brother Charles is unwittingly involved. Kat must risk her newfound magical powers as she defies the Order of the Guardians to foil the plot and clear her brother's name.

Reviews

Magic. Austen. A feisty heroine who cuts her hair short and punches snobby women on the nose. I was always going to love this book. Witchery in Austen-land is a fabulous idea * Liz Banks * Kat's effervescent personality is as vibrant as before and her particular blend of magic delights . * Lovereading4kids *
