Most Improper Magick is an adventurous fantasy tale set in Regency England. The novel opens with Kat Stephenson, the youngest of three sisters, breaking all convention to try to save her family from ruin. Hers is a family with a difference, though: her mother was a witch. Pretty soon, Kat herself is having some interesting encounters with magic, and also with ghosts, sinister aristocrats, highwaymen and... her older siblings.
The characters in this book were all distinctive and utterly lifelike, especially Kat and her sisters. You could tell from the very first page that they were set to have huge, entertaining personality clashes, and that's just what they did. I can't wait to read more about all three of the sisters in future books by this author, and I'm especially dying to find out what Angeline gets up to next.
The storyline of A Most Improper Magick was always intriguing and the pace was perfect - I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough as the mysteries unfolded. I think my favourite thing about this story - apart from the feisty Kat - was the magic mirror. I loved its part in the story, and the way it underlined Kat's important role in the family, even if her sisters refused to see it. The historical setting of the novel was also wonderful, and just added to the magic.
Heart-warming, magical and full of adventure - I loved this book!
