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
