Book Review: Renegade Magic by Stephanie Burgis


Kat Stephenson may have inherited her mother's magical talents, but not everyone in the Order of the Guardians is ready to accept her. When she is tricked into losing her temper in front of the most powerful Guardian in England, she finds herself expelled without a single magic lesson.
After a devastating accusation shatters her sister Angeline's romance, their stepmama whisks the family away to the fashionable city of Bath and orders Angeline to find a new fiancé. But as Angeline plays a dangerous game with a scandalous rake, their brother, Charles, tumbles headlong into danger...and Bath's wild magic gets ready to explode.
With more than one life at stake, will Kat's untrained magic be enough to reunite Angeline with her true love, conquer the danger at Bath, and prove she truly has what it takes to be a Guardian?
Such a wonderful sequel to the fully original Kat, Incorrigible. After the fiasco that happens at sister Elissa’s wedding, Kat and her family take a trip to Bath. There Kat discovers that the Roman Baths are more than what they seem, with a magical and dangerous secret waiting to be uncovered.

While I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as the first, I still found it utterly delightful and charming. The characters were lots of fun to read. The old and new ones alike were such fun to read about. For some reason my favorite characters in these books are the stuffy old ladies who have nothing better to do than criticize Kat for all her misdeeds.
I enjoy being in Kat’s world so much. The writing is descriptive and pleasant. It painted a clear image in my mind’s eye. Along with an exciting storyline, there’s a history lesson tucked beneath it. There’s much to learn about the Roman Bath’s, as well as just ordinary life in Regency England (though Kat’s life is far from ordinary!)
I strongly recommend Kat, Incorrigible to just about anyone, and once you’ve fallen in love with it, give Renegade Magic a try! You won’t be disappointed!
In fact, you can find the first 3 chapters of both Kat, Incorrigible and Renegade Magic right here (which is pretty cool considering Renegade Magic doesn’t come out for another 2 days!)
I received an advance eGalley to read and review, and received no compensation for this review
