Friday Memes: The Glass Magician by Caroline Stevermer

Thalia Cutler, the stage magician known as the Lady of the Lake, stepped nimbly aside to avoid the singer coming offstage at Keith's Vaudeville Theater in Philadelphia.
Friday 56:
"Sylvia means that somebody buggered up the gun so both the fake charge in the gun barrel and the tricky bit beneath it fired at the same time." 
This week I am spotlighting The Glass Magician by Caroline Stevermer. I have read earlier books by this author and was excited to see the eARC available on Edelweiss. Here is the description from Amazon:
Reminiscent of The Golem and the JinniThe Glass Magician by Caroline Stevermer is a magical and romantic tale set in New York’s Gilded Age.

New York 1905―The Vanderbilts. The Astors. The Morgans. They are the cream of society―and they own the nation on the cusp of a new century.
Thalia Cutler doesn’t have any of those family connections. What she does know is stage magic and she dazzles audiences with an act that takes your breath away.

That is, until one night when a trick goes horribly awry. In surviving she discovers that she can shapeshift, and has the potential to take her place among the rich and powerful.

But first, she’ll have to learn to control that power…before the real monsters descend to feast.


  1. Oh I like the sounds of this one! I added you to the linky. Happy weekend!

  2. I tried this one as well, but it just didn't quite work out for me. I hope you'll enjoy it. :)
