The new novel in Mercedes Lackey’s best-selling series of an alternative Edwardian Britain, where magic is real - and Elemental Masters are in control.
Lionel Hawkins is a magician whose act is only partially sleight of hand. The rest is real magic. He’s an Elemental Magician with the power to persuade the Elementals of Air to help him create amazing illusions. It doesn’t take long before his assistant, acrobat Katie Langford, notices that he’s no ordinary magician - and for Lionel to discover that she’s no ordinary acrobat, but rather an untrained and unawakened Fire Magician. She’s also on the run from her murderous and vengeful brute of a husband. But can she harness her magic in time to stop her husband from achieving his deadly goal?

Good, but not great.

something about nothing
No. The characters are flat. They seem like they can grown and be super interesting but nothing happens. They might come up with a plan, the super wizard might come and help and the heroine might get the courage or wit to escape, but in the end a fluke happens and there is no need for characters to do anything.
yes. Have liked many of her books previously, and she does have a tendency to wrap up things in the last 5 minutes, but this one really goes nowhere.
She talks very very slow and with no, NO expression aside from the very sweet, shy, girl. Her pauses are too long between sentences and I kept wondering if I had run out of battery or I was about to get a call. Also, it's infuriating when she reads "what?" (in a shy voice) and the narration continues: " she said outraged" or "she said angrily" . Her family must enjoy the narrators angry moments if this is all the expression she is able to manage
boring and a waste of time
