N Mercedes Lackey's uniue departure from her Valdemar series follows a young. This is a story of discrimination and discovery for a young woman in VictorianEdwardian England Maya Witherspoon is a half caste Anglo Indian who trained as a Doctor in India and has now come to England to escape the vengeance of her sorceress Aunt and her Thugee cult It seems no one wants her to be a doctor and there is the added problem of her own magic inherited from her father Her struggles to become accepted as a Doctor in an antagonistic medical milieu the racial discrimination are handled well and there is good sense of the change in the air of England of that time Maya also has magical helpers and a cast of characters straight out of Dickens to help and hinder her A truly enjoyable read I was swept along on this adventure did not want it to end

    I enjoyed this novel but enjoyed two of the short stories in this series. GREY and GREY'S GHOST have a feel of Kipling and Dickens about them which this novel lacks. Instead, it is a typical Mercedes Lackey fantasy, but set in London instead of some alien world or universe. Being a typical Mercedes Lackey fant

    This book starts out slow, but I have read quite a few of Mercedes Lackey's books so I kept on reading not like it was that great of a chore since she is a master writer. And I was rewarded with a having read a truly great book. I really needed to read a truly great book as I read many many, mediocre to good books, and have become bored. I found myself playing games on my computer instead of reading YIKES! Now

    This is the first "real" Elemental Masters story for me, Fire Rose and Reserved for the Cat are not really in the same timeline. It's based on Snow White, but except for two very clear references, this isn't something that's obvious. I love retelling of fairytales so I whooped a bit for those references, but if one doesn't like fairytales it's not a big thing. Protagonists believable and the setting of the story is great, as the

    A great series of books reimagining classic fairy tales into something a little different a lovely world setting with the existence of mages hidden within society. At times the stories can feel a little clichéd and as you go through

    As always Mercedes Lackey is superb! I don't know where she gets her ideas from but, please Misty, keep them coming!
    We are all, and me specifically, grateful for all you write,
    thankyou very much.

  11. This is one of the best of the Elemental Masters series. The vision of Victorian London is credible, the magic world is interesting, and the characters are picturesque and unusual. It is well plotted and the ending is good. I definitely recommend it.

    The Serpent’s Shadow (2001) and The Fire Rose (1995) begin the Elemental Masters series with all of Mercedes Lackey’s flair and artistry in full bloom. Both books are labelled #1 in the series which now has 16 books (1, 1, 2 15) and 2 anthologies.

    The Serpent’s Shadow begins quietly and gains in suspense and speed all the way to an unexpected yet perfect ending.
