The Spy Master's Scheme (Glass and Steele Book 12) Kindle Edition
With knowledge of magic becoming more widespread in London, magicians find themselves highly sought after. Consumers want to buy their wares and so seek out magicians among their acquaintance. India’s rare magic is in demand from Matt’s family, the Collector’s Club, and other magicians who want her to extend their magic.
But it’s wise to be wary of the attention.
When the wool magician who helped India create a flying carpet spell disappears, his wife is worried for his life. India and Matt are worried for the country. If the person who stole the spell also kidnapped the wool magician, they could use flying carpets as vehicles of war. The closer they get to finding him, the more they realize they can’t trust anyone, not even the government. When it’s revealed that England’s spy master has plans for India’s talents, she refuses to cooperate.
But Matt knows it’s not as simple as refusing. Every decision has a repercussion.
And repercussions can be deadly.
"Glass and Steele Make for Powerful Reading...What would happen if you took Sherlock Holmes, Hermione Granger, and sprinkled in a few characters from Jane Austin and Zane Grey? You would probably begin to approach what C.J. Archer has done with India Steele and Matthew Glass. Be prepared for Victorian morals, magic, mystery, and culture clashes. Fun reading and in the hands of the right director a great series of movies." ~ Katie Squire

These characters will draw you in. They're complicated and possess very human like qualities. They fall in love, they mourn, they problem solve and they know how to command a room.
CJ Archer is a skilled sorry teller who will give you vivid details, entertaining dialogue and unforgettable scenes.
This book read more like filler for the most part with very little more to it than just story progression for some of the characters. I'm definitely disappointed after this one. Even the ending was weak.

C J Archer is one of my favourite authors and this series was my introduction to her writing. Fortunately for me, she is a prolific author of a number of series which are currently keeping me out of mischief.
Well done again.
