Review: The Last Mage Guardian by Sabrina Chase

The Last Mage Guardian is a new fantasy romance, set in an alternate Victorian age, and very much along the same lines as Stevermer and Wrede’s alternate Regency fantasy novels.

Ardhuin is one of those sensible sorts who just wants to get along with her own life of magic study and practice, far away from the annoyances and censorious glances of those who don’t think young ladies should be interested in such things. But she is the heir to great magical power, and such people have great responsibilities and enemies. However, she also finds herself with unexpected allies — including a young writer who just wants to get away from it all and finish his book….

The author has included all the fun of a good romance and none of the goop. The worldbuilding is interesting and beautiful, the action is interesting, and the book is full of memorable scenes of magic and intrigue. Everything ends happily, even.

(I do not have a single bad thing to say about this book. Do you know how relaxing that is?)

It’s $2.99 on the Kindle.
