“A fun little novel told entirely through letters between two cousins. It had the feel of a Regency novel, but with a touch of Harry Potter-esque magic. This is considered a YA novel, and was definitely clean.”Karina W wrote this review Sunday, April 24, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I enjoyed the plot build-up using the 'Letter Game' writing style. Interesting character development. Predictable ending but good story”Larry L wrote this review Monday, April 18, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I thought that I would love this book - but it is taking so long to get on with the plot...I couldn't say that this would be a Qucik Pic for reluctant readers...
I am determined to finish this book!
I give up.
I read the last few letters between the two girls - I think it has an ESE.
If you like the English dialog you will probably like this book, but it is definitely NOT a Quick Pic”
“A series of letters between two cousins regarding magical espionage in Jane Austen period England. I really enjoyed it. The authors did a really good job of mixing the magic in with reality; it seemed as if it were perfect commonplace. I found the ending a bit abrupt. Still a good read, am definitely going to have to read the sequels.”Victoria P wrote this review Wednesday, April 6, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“A very funny exploration of faux "magical" Georgian England through an exchange of letters between two cousins, Kate and Cecelia. Sometimes it made me laugh out loud!
Reading it again (February 2013) since I bought my own copy for Kindle.
Another reread (November 2013) caused me to buy the sequels on my Kindle as well. Such great dialogue.”
