    Overall this was an enjoyable read. I didn't quite know what to

    Overall this was an enjoyable read. I didn't quite know what to expect from the cover and the title gave me the impression that this was more of a juvenile book. That was a very incorrect assumption. This book should be firmly placed in the YA category and would be especially enjoyable for older teenage girls or even adult women. The story is told in letters between Cecelia (Cecy) and her cousin, Kate. The interplay between the two is charming. They are both smart and witty among a slew of vapid women out to marry as well as possible. The element of magic is woven pretty seamlessly into early 1800's society. It's a main point to the plot but the author doesn't bash you over the head with big showy magic tricks.

    The plot is entertaining, but not surprising. I enjoyed it while reading but when I put it down I didn't feel like I had to immediately pick it back up. Perhaps that's because I had a pretty good idea what was going to happen next. The plot was predictable. Everything is tied up neatly at the end and it is satisfying although not unexpected. If there were some kind of twist or anything at all out of the ordinary I would have given an extra star.

    The real strength of this book is in it's dialogue. It is witty and funny and it's what I really liked best about the book.

    Fun read for woman or teen age girl

    This was a nice character driven story. It had a friendly, gossipy feel, and felt like a reading letters from high school friends. Kind of a light hearted Jane Austen, with a smattering of magic.

    Review:Sorcery & Cecelia by Patricia C. Wrede 4 STARS This

    Review:Sorcery & Cecelia by Patricia C. Wrede
    4 STARS This is an interesting background to writing a novel. They played a game called a letter game and would write letters back and forth in character and not mention plot. Now days if kids did that it would be short texts. I enjoyed it but would have been better if I read it instead of listening to my kindle. It broke and I could not look at screen if I was lost.(did not handle evacuating very well.) Thier is nothing in hear that is objectional unless you believe magic is wrong. The story two main characters never come in contact with each other except by letters. Kate and Cecelia are cousins and quite close till the summer of 1817. Kate was sent to come out for a season in London and Cecelia at home in her small country home. The two cousins tell each other everything that is going on. Thier is a world of magic that exists. This story is different and as an air of uniqueness to it. As they both battle in thier way against evil and find love along the way. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. 05/22/2012 PUB Open Road

    Just for fun

    A clever way to write a book. Both authors are a delight and together they mix up lots of fun. I'm now reading the other books in the series and enjoying the lovely sillyness of them all.

    A Fun Read

    A fun, light-hearted novel that Jane Austen could have written if she had magic on her mind. The series of letters format could have been annoying, instead it is charming. At times hilarious, this is a great novel for escaping the mundane realities of everyday life.

    Favorite Fluff

    This is one of my favorite fluff reads; it's an enjoyable adventure through a Pride and Prejudice-like era. The two heroines tackle magical mysteries without blinking an eye, and refuse to become damsels in distress, ever. They are perfectly ready to lend their aid to any magician who runs afoul of villains.
