In nineteenth-century Angland, magic is reserved for gentlemen while ladies attend to the more practical business of politics. But Cassandra Harwood has never followed the rules...
Four months ago, Cassandra Harwood was the first woman magician in Angland, and she was betrothed to the brilliant, intense love of her life.
Now Cassandra is trapped in a snowbound house party deep in the elven dales, surrounded by bickering gentleman magicians, manipulative lady politicians, her own interfering family members, and, worst of all, her infuriatingly stubborn ex-fiancé, who refuses to understand that she’s given him up for his own good.
But the greatest danger of all lies outside the manor in the falling snow, where a powerful and malevolent elf-lord lurks...and Cassandra lost all of her own magic four months ago.
To save herself, Cassandra will have to discover exactly what inner powers she still possesses – and risk everything to win a new kind of happiness.
A witty and sparkling romantic fantasy novella that opens a brand-new series for adults from the author of Kat, Incorrigible, Masks and Shadows and Congress of Secrets.
"With its unique twist on the Regency Era, SNOWSPELLED is clever, romantic, and filled with magic. Stephanie Burgis is a fresh new voice and I can’t wait to see what she does next. Bring on the sequel!"
– Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of the Kate Daniels series and the Hidden Legacy series
About the Author
Stephanie Burgis grew up in East Lansing, Michigan, but now she lives in Wales with her husband (fellow writer and ebook cover designer Patrick Samphire), their two sons, and their crazy-sweet border collie mix. Her first historical fantasy novel for adults, MASKS AND SHADOWS, was published by Pyr Books in April 2016, and her second, CONGRESS OF SECRETS, will be published in November 2016. She is also the author of a trilogy of funny Regency-era fantasy novels for ages ten and up, published by Atheneum Books in the US and Templar Books in the UK, and a new MG series to be published in both countries by Bloomsbury, beginning with THE DRAGON WITH A CHOCOLATE HEART (2017). The first book in her Regency fantasy trilogy, KAT, INCORRIGIBLE, was selected for Bankstreet's Best Books of 2012 list and won the Waverton Good Read Children's Award in the UK (under its British title, A MOST IMPROPER MAGICK).
