Overview

In this conclusion to the Regency-era fantasy trilogy Kirkus Reviews calls “enjoyable mayhem,” Kat is tasked with saving her family, the Order of the Guardians, and England itself.

There is nothing in nineteenth-century England quite so improper as magic.

With just days to go before her sister Angeline’s long-delayed wedding to Frederick Carlyle, the impetuous Kat Stephenson has resigned herself to good behavior. But Kat’s initiation into the magical Order of the Guardians is fast approaching, and trouble seems to follow her everywhere.

First, Kat must contend with the wretched Mrs. Carlyle’s attempts to humiliate her sister; the arrival of the mysterious Marquise de Valmont, who bears suspicious resemblance to Kat’s late mother; and Frederick’s bewitching cousin Jane, who has Charles Stephenson tripping over his feet. But when a menacing boy with powerful magic starts hunting Kat, a dastardly villain tries to kill Angeline, and the Guardians face a magical robbery that could spell the end of their Order, propriety becomes the least of Kat’s concerns.

Can Kat save her sister’s life, the Order of the Guardians, and England itself before it’s too late?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
This was to be an exciting year for Kat as she was to be inducted into the magical Order of the Guardians. But first she must attend the long-awaited marriage of her sister Angeline to Frederick Carlyle. The usually impetuous Kat has promised to behave but it is a difficult promise to keep when from the beginning their journey is fraught with danger. When it is discovered that the magic portals have been stolen, Kat believes they have been taken to Devon, the site of the wedding. For Kat there are many irksome characters to contend with among them Frederick’s haughty mother who seems bent on preventing the marriage, the Marquise de Valmont who Kat thinks may be the mother who left her when she was ten days old and brother Charles who is smitten by the lovely Jane Carlyle who Kat is convinced may also be attempting to thwart the marriage. When an evil boy, with dangerous magic, follows Kat she knows she must abandon all promises of propriety and uncover the plot that not only will destroy the Order of the Guardians but her family as well. This is Book Three of the engaging “Kat, Incorrigible” series with a spunky heroine and fans will delight in all the drama and mayhem that leads to a satisfying conclusion. Deft touches of humor are welcome breaks in the tension. The fast pace and plot twists make this a real page-turner. Burgis has created a magical realm while still managing to keep her feet firmly planted in the real world. Characters are fully rounded and none more so that the capricious Kat. The novel can be fully appreciated on its own merits but readers may want to go back to the beginning to enjoy more of Kat’s exploits. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey; Ages 10 to 14.
