"Part romance, part mystery, part magic; all of which a joy to read." - Dreamer J's Book Reviews
"This story has everything I look for in a quality, entertaining piece of fiction. 1) A strong female lead, 2) a dark and mysterious male character (I admit, they are my weakness), 3) eloquent writing, and 4) lots of quirky humor and banter." - Danaye from Young @ Art book reviews
DESCRIPTION: THE MAGICIAN’S DIARY
India and Matt thought all their problems would come to an end once they found Chronos. But the watch magician brings with him as many questions as answers, and a load of trouble. To fix Matt's magic watch, they must find an old diary that once belonged to a doctor magician murdered decades ago. The hunt drags them into a sordid mystery involving two of London's craft guilds. With old and new enemies determined to stop them, and long-held secrets unearthed, Matt and India must work together better than ever.
But as the reason for India's strangely strong magic is revealed, she wants to draw other magicians into the open, while Matt wants to hide magic to keep her safe.
Her plan backfires. His plan shatters. And danger comes to their door.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The foggy, lamplit streets of Victorian England are a perfect locale for mystery, fantasy and suspense. The fourth book in C.J. Archer’s Glass and Steele series makes the most of the author’s eye for detail and historical facts. This time, protagonists India and Matt delve into secret societies and unlock mysteries that have remained unsolved for centuries—and there’s peril around every cobblestoned corner. It’s the vividness of Archer’s storytelling that brings readers of all ages back time and again to these tales of the unexpected.

Love this series. Would love to see Glass and Steele as a movie!
A bit plodding
The writing is pretty good, but the story moves slow at times. Long setups for fast conclusions
These stories are a lighthearted read that I desperately look forward to after a long day sitting at my desk job. I love the characters and blend of Wild West with proper England. Matt’s character is the best. I love how he is not afraid to be proud of his American raising but is still respectful to his English family. And of course India rocks. I love powerful strong female characters. And India, awesome name.
