"Author of The paper Magician."
Sequel to: Spellbreaker.
"England, 1895. An unsolved series of magician murders and opus thefts isn't a puzzle to Elsie Camden. But to reveal a master spellcaster as the culprit means incriminating herself as an unregistered spellbreaker. When Elsie refuses to join forces with the charming assassin, her secret is exposed, she's thrown in jail, and the murderer disappears. But Elsie's hope hasn't vanished. Through a twist of luck, the elite magic user Bacchus Kelsey helps Elsie join the lawful, but with a caveat: they must marry to prove their cover story. Forced beneath a magical tutor while her bond with Bacchus grows, Elsie seeks to thwart the plans of England's most devious criminal - if she can find them. With hundreds of stolen spells at their disposal, the villain has a plan - and it involves seducing Elsie to the dark side. But even now that her secret is out, Elsie must be careful how she uses the new abilities she's discovering, or she may play right into the criminal's hands."--Publisher.

*Starred Review* After uncovering Lily Merton, the master spellmaker who manipulated their actions, Elsie Camden and Bacchus Kelsey now have to find and expose her to the larger magical community in England. Elsie is a highly skilled spellbreaker, but an unregistered one; once exposed, she is jailed. Bacchus works quickly to get her released, but in order to provide credibility to the story he tells to get her out, Elsie must be trained as if she knows nothing about spell-breakingâand they must get married. Although they have grown close and are attached to one another, they skipped a few steps by getting engaged in such a way. As if exposing the evildoer wasn't stressful enough, now they have to plan a wedding. Additionally, Lily wants the talented Elsie working for her. Lily will use her skills, both magic and otherwise, to lure Elsie to her side. The romance between Elsie and Bacchus, combined with the fantasy of magic and good fighting evil, will appeal to fans of the previous Spellbreaker novel (Spellbreaker, 2020) and to fans of Naomi Novik or Katherine Arden's Winternight trilogy.
