A Tangle of Magicks by Stephanie Burgis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Kat Stephenson is back, and this time she and her sisters and brother are in Bath, where Stepmama hopes to find a suitable match for Angeline. Never mind that Angeline has already found her true love; his mother has put paid to that union. Kat would love to have her sister's ear, but Angeline isn't speaking to her. For that matter, neither are the Guardians after Kat loses her temper in front of their leader.
There is strange magic around the baths that give the English west country town its name, though, and Kat's in the unique position to see more than a girl her age ought. Someone is tapping into this ancient and devastating power, and will Kat be able to get the attention of either her sister or the Guardians before it's too late?
Yes, I know it isn't out yet, but I have connections, what can I say? Given I know a lot of writers and have access to more books than anyone can read in a lifetime, it's notable that I finished this book in two days - and that felt like too long because I really wanted to just sit and read it all on the first day.
