Overview

Inspired by the works of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, Garth Nix's Newt's Emerald is a Regency romance with a fantasy twist. New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger calls it "charming; quite, quite charming." 

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 mustache-wearing man. During Truthful's dangerous journey she discovers a crook, an unsuspecting ally, and an evil sorceress—but will she find the Emerald?

I think NIx's Abhorsen series is amazing, so I was intrigued with the idea of a Regency period book by him. I was not disappointed. This has fun characters, humor, great danger, daring do! Enjoy yourself and read it!

I don’t it’s a good thing when you literally can’t come up with more than a sentence to say about a book. Usually, I’m the girl that can’t stop talking about a book and end up putting the people that read my reviews through these long drawn out things. However, this book was just quite unmemorable and boring. I mean, it was campy and fun, but I just didn’t connect with anything and I was just so ridiculously bored. I just can’t find the words to explain anything more about it but it did have some fun, kooky moments that did get me through. 2 crowns and a Cinderella rating!
