Overview

Among Mercedes Lackey’s many novels, few are as critically acclaimed and beloved as those about the Elemental Masters. The novels in this series are loosely based on classic fairy tales, and take place in a fantasy version of turn-of-the-century London, where magic is real and Elemental Masters control the powers of Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. Now other authors join Mercedes Lackey to add their own special touches to this delightful alternate history, in a world where magic is always just around the corner…

Praise

"Richly detailed historic backgrounds add flavor and richness to an already strong series that belongs in most fantasy collections. Highly recommended."
– Library Journal (starred review)
"Once again, Mercedes Lackey has created a rich, lush depiction of England’s Elemental Masters, combining elemental magic, fantastic creatures, coming-of-age elements, and the realities of war…. Lackey’s elegant wordcraft combines humor with the knife edge of desperation…. I highly advise people to read this book, and I desperately urge Mercedes Lackey to keep writing the Elemental Masters Novels."
– Fresh Fiction
"Mercedes Lackey fans will thoroughly enjoy this fun escapade into turn-of-the-century England…. I find Ms. Lackey’s Elemental Masters series a true frolic into fantasy and Reserved for the Cat is no exception. Witty and dry, the magic in her books is always so believable, as are her characters."
– Fantasy Book Spot
"Fans of light fantasy will be thrilled by Lackey’s clever fairy-tale adventure."
– Booklist
"The Elemental Masters novels are beautiful romantic adult fairy tales…. Master magician Mercedes Lackey writes a charming fantasy."
