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.


Caroline Stevermer is best known for her historical fantasy novels, particularly for her Scholarly Magic series (A College of MagicsA Scholar of Magics, and When The King Comes Home), which Terri Windling said had, “sly wit and sparkling prose that have earned her a cult following. She is also the author of River Rats, which was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults and received the Golden Duck Award and Golden Kite Award. Stevermer graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a degree in art history and currently lives in Minnesota.
