Summary

Inspired by the works of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, Garth Nix's Newt's Emerald is a lighthearted Regency romance with a fantasy twist.

After Lady Truthful's magical Newington Emerald is stolen from her, she devises a simple plan: go to London to recover the missing jewel. She quickly learns, however, that a woman cannot wander the city streets alone without damaging her reputation, and she disguises herself as a moustache-wearing man. 

During Truthful's dangerous journey she discovers a crook, an unsuspecting ally and an evil sorceress, but will she find the Emerald?

A joy to read

Maybe I like this author so much because he writes with humour and also his stories have a beginning, a middle and an end!
A good story, much enjoyed!
