The Glass Magician by Caroline Stevermer
Reminiscent of The Golem and the Jinni, Caroline Stevermer's The Glass Magician is a magical and romantic tale set in New York’s Gilded Age.
A fledging magician discovers true magic…and a power that might destroy her.
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 come from money or have family connections. But she knows magic—stage magic. And she dazzles the audience with fantastical acts.
One night, a trick goes horribly awry. Thalia discovers a magic beyond her stage twirls and costumes, finding her world far more enchanted—and herself far more powerful—than she ever imagined.
To understand what she is, Thalia will have to face a New York more dangerous than any stage she’s known… before the real monsters descend to feast.
