A MATTER OF MAGIC PATRICIA WREDE PDF

Heyer could be sophisticated, charming, and romantic -- as can Patricia Wrede; but when she tries to put a dozen characters into a situation with all sorts of absurd things happening and lines that try a little too hard to be hilarious, then the work often ends up falling flat. In it, we meet nobleman Richard Merrill, aka Mairelon, who is in hiding as a traveling magician because he was framed for a crime. He is seeking a magical artifact in a Regency England which is essentially real Regency England, plus magic and teams up with a young thief named Kim to find it. Then the cast began to expand

Heyer could be sophisticated, charming, and romantic -- as can Patricia Wrede; but when she tries to put a dozen characters into a situation with all sorts of absurd things happening and lines that try a little too hard to be hilarious, then the work often ends up falling flat. In it, we meet nobleman Richard Merrill, aka Mairelon, who is in hiding as a traveling magician because he was framed for a crime. He is seeking a magical artifact in a Regency England which is essentially real Regency England, plus magic and teams up with a young thief named Kim to find it.

Then the cast began to expand There are wanna-be druids, wastrel young nobles, doltish young nobles, crime lords, thugs, insipid ingenues, scheming women, a woman of mystery, a surly servant, and a very nasty wizard. All of these people are thrown together in situations where the funny ones say funny things and the scary ones say scary things, and the doltish ones say doltish things In addition to being not as funny as it wants to be and hard to follow at times, the bigger fault in my opinion is that all this nonsense with a supporting cast of dozens detracts from the heart of the story -- Mairelon and Kim.

The plot is still relatively convoluted for this genre, but I found it interesting and not too difficult to follow. In a similar vein, there is a subplot in which Kim has another suitor, and that story is also shortchanged in relation to others.

Certainly not more than Overall, this is a mild recommendation from me if you like Regencies, magic, and a little bit of comedy of errors.
