Shy, studious Persephone Leland would far rather devote herself to her secret magic studies than enter society and look for a suitable husband. But right as the inevitable season for "coming out" is about to begin, Persy and her twin sister discover that their governess in magic has been kidnapped as part of a plot to gain control of the soon-to-be Queen Victoria. Racing through Mayfair ballrooms and royal palaces, the sisters overcome bad millinery, shady royal spinsters, and a mysterious Irish wizard. And along the way, Persy learns that husband hunting isn’t such an odious task after all, if you can find the right quarry.
I did not enjoy this book as I originally hoped I would. What I thoguht to be an intriquing plot filled with twists and turns that I wouldn't see turned out to be transparent. Everything was so obvious that it felt as if I didn't gain anything after shutting the book.
