Stolen Magic by Stephanie Burgis

Kat Stephenson, oh how I love thee. Kat Stephenson the title character in the Kat, Incorrigible series is a spunky, spitfire thirteen year old that has stolen my heart. Kat is “so, so tired of being treated like a young lady rather than a sensible human being.” While reading the first book in the series, Kat, Incorrigible, I was smiling so much that my cheeks hurt. While I was a bit disappointed with the second book in the series, this last book, Stolen Magic has the same magic as the first book and was every bit as cute as Kat, Incorrigible.

Stolen Magic continues the magical story of Kat who continues to romp through the social rules of the Regency-era with reckless abandon. In this book, she is attending the wedding of her sister Angeline or at least she hopes that it will turn out that way. But someone seems to be trying to kill her. There are “definitely secrets afoot” and it is up to Kat to uncover those secrets.

Stolen Magic was a very satisfying conclusion and wrap up to a very entertaining trilogy. Although I am sad that this is the last book in the series. This middle grade historical fantasy has it all–excitement, danger, exquisite manners, and a young heroine easy to fall in love with. However, this book is not just for middle grade student. I haven’t been in middle school for many, many years, yet I still found this book and series very entertaining. I have read other middle grade books and end up thinking to myself that I am just too old to enjoy this. The Kat, Incorrigible series transcends the middle grade age group.
