Dark Passage (Dark Mirror Series #2) by M. J. Putney

The Irregulars return home to 1803 England safely, but their worldview has changed. Not only have their heroic efforts at Dunkirk given them pride and confidence but their dangerous mission has increased their magical powers.

Tory delights in the ever deepening bond she shares with Allarde until she discovers how powerfully he is connected to his ancient family estate—the lands he will not inherit unless he denies his magical powers and chooses a nonmagical mate. If Tory really loves him, she must walk away—but does she have the strength to leave the love of her life?

Cynthia's heroic efforts at Dunkirk have won her the respect of the Irregulars, but her sharp tongue keeps everyone at a distance. Isolated and very alone at Lackland Abbey over the Christmas holidays, she reluctantly agrees to join Jack Rainford and his family for their celebration even though they're commoners, far below her own noble rank. The warm welcome of the Rainfords makes her feel happier and more accepted than she has ever been. But she can't possibly be falling in love with flirtatious Jack! Can she?

Then the Irregulars are drawn into a dangerous attempt to rescue a vitally important French scientist from Nazi-occupied France. Tory and Allarde must work together because countless lives are at stake. Disaster strikes and not only is their mission threatened, but their very lives. Can magic and their loyalty to each other help them survive to return home?

Find out in Dark Passage—M.J. Putney's thrilling follow-up to Dark Mirror.

After helping with the Miracle of Dunkirk, the Irregulars (Lady Victoria "Tory" Mansfield the mirror master, her boyfriend Lord Justin Allard the mage, Elspeth the healer and the two weather mages Lady Cynthia Stanton and Jack Rainsford) leave 1940 through the Dark Mirror. They return to their time and place 1803 Lackland Abbey; a school established to cleanse magic from the students exiled here by their respective embarrassed families. Tory's dad refuses for her to come home to attend her sister's wedding. However, her sis moves the location so Tory can attend. When she meets Justin's mom, Tory realizes he cannot marry her because he would lose his family estate due to her being a magic practitioner. They return to school worried that Jack's relative in 1940 Nick Rainsford has not exchanged messages through the mirror recently. Nick arrives through the Dark Mirror to explain the Nazi air assault buried the tunnel and he had a vision of rescuing Jewish scientist Dr. Weiss held captive by the Nazis in Northern France. Dr. Weiss is working on a cure for infection. The males are eager to go while the females refuse. However, the Dark Mirror controls the fate of the Irregulars. The second Dark Mirror young adult historical fantasy is a terrific tale that digs deep into the impact on the key ensemble Irregulars by a society in which the upper class disdains magic while the peasants embrace it. Much of the story line remains passive with a focus on the effect of de facto prejudice on the Irregulars in 1803 England. The action ignites late when the team makes a daring rescue attempt in 1940 Nazi occupied Northern France. Harriet Klausner
