Kat senses magic following as her family travels to Angeline's long-delayed wedding, but soon discovers that England itself is in peril unless can stop the rogue magic-wielder!
At least she'll get to see older sister Elissa again at the wedding, Kat sighs, as the borrowed coach bumps over country roads toward the Carlyle estate. Their brother Charles and Stepmama have kept Kat from practicing her magic, even as her initiation into the Order of the Guardians approaches.
Being a witch or a magic-wielder is frowned upon by Regency society, and Stepmama so longs to be accepted by those of 'good breeding' like Lady Fotherington. During introductions, the beautiful Marquise who knew Kat's late mother has such an interesting reaction - were she and Lady Fotherington previously acquainted?
Even with the mansion filled by both families and many guests, Kat senses the rogue magic nearby, but can't run off exploring while Lady Fotherington is watching her, trying to find some reason to disqualify her from the Order. Hoping to stop the wedding plans for good, Mrs. Carlyle has invited Frederick's lovely childhood sweetheart to stay, and Angeline fears her beauty will steal her fiance's heart.
Will there be a wedding for Angeline at last?
Can Kat find the rogue magic-wielder before it's too late?
Is her initiation into the Order ever going to happen?
Secret passageways, caverns in the cliffs overlooking the sea, magic attacks by the rogue, and a threat on Kat's life!
This final volume of The Unladylike Adventures of Kat Stephenson wraps up the mysterious magic of an alternate Great Britain during its Regency years as shared in Kat, Incorrigible (book 1) and Renegade Magic (book 2).
