While the first installment in this series remains unquestionably the best, volume three is still an enjoyable read. Kate and Cecelia's letters continue to be a nice mixture of magic and humor, and the addition of James' and Thomas' letters is a nice touch. The magical plotline wasn't as interesting as in the first two books, but this was a solid conclusion to a totally charming trilogy.

I liked it

Smaller in scope than the prior two books, The Mislaid Magician also is rather less interesting in the characters, writing, and plot...Although in some part it being the final installment may contribute to that. Now instead of the motley adventures of Cecelia and Kate in England and Europe, a settled life appears. And, lest things become dull, they toss in the letters of James (Cecelia's spouse) and Thomas. Those help a lot. Don't let me sell this short, however, gripping, heartwarming, adventurous, and sweet as it is. In several cases I caught myself fixed to the page in suspense-though the epistolary format dilutes action, and for excitement you may be looking for the first one. All in all: A worthy ending. Even as a stand-alone this would be wondersome.

So fun to read! It's all written in letters between the characters, and in cheery Regency language.

Summary

Add a Summary

Ten years after the hullabaloo of their weddings, Cecelia and her cousin Kate have settled down. That is not to mention a seemingly-mute girl with a name seemingly-shorted of Alexandrina, ley lines running up and down the estate of Georgy's, and other distractions able to weave the plot together, still with Cecy and Kate's wisdom and mirth, and this time with the exchange of letters between Thomas and James. India ink, moving tin soldiers, and the remaining epistolary format makes this a cracking good read. (This could have worked better as a review...bother.)
