New York 1905-The Vanderbilts. The Astors. The Morgans. They are the cream of society-and they own the nation on the cusp of a new century.

Thalia Cutler doesn't have any of those family connections. What she does know is stage magic and she dazzles audiences with an act that takes your breath away.

That is, until one night when a trick goes horribly awry. In surviving she discovers that she can shapeshift, and has the potential to take her place among the rich and powerful.

But first, she'll have to learn to control that power.before the real monsters descend to feast.

Reviews for The Glass Magician

Praise for The Glass Magician A delicious read--elegant, neat, sprightly, well-defined and likeable characters...I absolutely loved it. --Genevieve Cogman, author of The Invisible Library series Sprightly and inventive! --Elizabeth Bear Stevermer has re-imagined New York's gilded age to perfection...pure fantasy and fascinating, a prickly murder mystery, and a bevy of strong women, both young and old. I'm sure there will be a sequel. Well, I hope there will be a sequel. There had better be a sequel! --Jane Yolen Praise for Caroline Stevermer I want to live inside Caroline Stevermer's books. Her characters are clever, courageous, and charming. --Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author Caroline Stevermer has a wonderfully light touch...a deft and witty interweaving of mystery and magic. --Jo Walton on A Scholar of Magics Full of wonders. By the end of the first paragraph, I suspected I was in good hands; by the end of the third page, I was sure of it. --Lois McMaster Bujold on A Scholar of Magics It's a romp! I read straight through, cheering for the plucky servant kids, loving the household magic, and terrified of the curse! --Tamora Pierce on Magic Below Stairs Delightful. --The Washington Post on A College of Magics Stevermer is a worthy follower of Jane Austen for wit, of Dorothy Sayers for suspense and erudition. --Booklist on A Scholar of Magics
