Lackey’s latest Elemental Masters novel is set in Victorian England. The Harton School for Boys and Girls, run by Isabelle and Frederick Harton, is one of the few schools that takes students whose magic doesn’t pertain to the elements, and who are, therefore, frequently ignored by the Elemental Masters. After an attempt is made on Sarah and Nan’s lives, it is clear that a powerful Elemental Master wants one or both girls dead. Interestingly drawn characters hold our attention to the end, even if the good ones are very, very good, and the bad are full-blown villains.
