About the Author
Praise For Renegade Magic…
"Kat Stephenson, incorrigible as ever, returns to sow more magical chaos in a Regency England where families tainted by witchcraft are shunned in polite Society...this rollicking tale is neither historical fiction nor literary retread. Recommended for readers who like their fantasy seasoned with feisty characters and nonstop action."
--Kirkus Reviews, February 15, 2012
"This fast-paced fantasy will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Tweens will sympathize with her struggles to control her impulses and gain respect from the adults in her life. Though this is the second volume in a series, it stands well on its own, and the research into early-19th-century England shines through without detracting from the nimble plotting. This combination of history and fantasy is sure to please.”
—School Library Journal, March 2012
“Regency romance meets Harry Potter with a strong jolt of twenty-first-century feminism in this second novel in the Kat, Incorrigible series….The lovely details—Roman baths, detailed costumes, and the seamy underside of Oxford student life—will have readers swooning all over again.”
—Booklist, March 15, 2012
"Kat is a feisty heroine.... She is fiercely loyal, stubborn, funny, and incredibly likable. Readers will root for her throughout her magical adventures. This imaginative and original series set in Regency-era England will appeal to fans of historical fiction, romance, fantasy, and adventure. Renegade Magic will leave readers clamoring for the third and final installment of Kat's adventures."
—VOYA, April 2012
“Kat Stephenson returns for more magical adventures in Regency England in this diverting middle-grade fantasy novel, sequel to Kat, Incorrigible…. All together, a fun romp for fantasy and Regency fans of all ages.”
