Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting I do not usually read this type of fantasy, but something about it caught my attention and I ended up really enjoying it. I liked the story, however for me it may have been the novelty of the magic and fantasy elements that kept me riveted. The good and evil aspect was somewhat black and white and I would have liked more character development, but a good read none the less.

Editorial Reviews

Raves for Unnatural Issue:"Set in an alternate England on the ve of World War I, the latest addition to Lackey's 'Elemenal Masters' series features a strong female protagonist in search of her true calling and a sophisticated nobleman who discovers that there is more to life than magic. Verdict: historical fantasy and gothic romance combine beautifully in this fantasy adventure from the author of the popular Valdemar novels." —Library Journal"Lackey has delivered another fine entry into the Elemental Masters series with this take of an abandoned child suddenly thrust into the center of a very class conscious London at the start of WWI. Readers cannot help but admire Susanne's pluck, determination, and desire to do right while building a new life and experiencing her first serious crush. The storyline and subplots are smoothly woven together and as usual, Lackey's character development is delightful. The climax offers a small surprise as assistance comes not from a magical source but from something even scarier." —Monsters & Critics"All in fairy-tale tradition....It's grim fun, with some nice historical detail, and just a hint of romance to help lighten things." —Locus
