9780312853693: The Magician's Ward

One year after Richard Merrill promised to make young Kim a lady and a magician in MAIRELON THE MAGICIAN, Kim is discovering that magic can be harder than it looks--and being a lady in Regency London is even harder. When disaster strikes, Kim must negotiate the hazards of London society, and she finds that her abilities as a magician and a lady are a matter of life and death .

From Kirkus Reviews:

No, not a hospital drama about ailing wizards, but another yarn set in a fantasy Regency England featuring Richard Merrill, a.k.a. Mairelon the Magician, and his ward Kim, the former street thief. While Kim resists Richard's Aunt Agatha's determined attempts to introduce her to Polite Society (i.e., find her a husband), a gentleman burglar attempts to steal a book from the house library. Somehow connected to this, so Kim learns from an old thief colleague, are the efforts of a wicked moneylender to gather up street urchins who have magic talents, coupled with a mysterious, debilitating magical attack on Mairelon himself. Something of an improvement over Mairelon the Magician (1991), but still leisurely, YA-ish, and lacking innovation. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

From Library Journal:

This sequel to Mairelon the Magician (Tor, 1991. o.p.) finds Kim, an apprentice magician and ward of Richard Merrill (Mairelon), in Regency England society. When Mairelon's magic powers are stolen, Kim must trust her magician's abilities to uncover the thief. This light romance cloaked in fantasy is a marginal purchase.
