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?

interesting attempt by Nix to imitate Heyer

good story but for those who are new to the regency period novels, the language etc. it might be a bit tricky. good introduction for children wishing to listen to historically set novels

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!
