The young lady Victoria Mansfield's life of privilege is threatened when she finds her blood is tainted by magic, and she is exiled to Lackland Abbey, where she meets rebel students who have pledged their talents to protect England.

McMillan Palgrave

Lady Victoria Mansfield, youngest daughter of the earl and countess of Fairmount, is destined for a charmed life. Soon she will be presented during the London season, where she can choose a mate worthy of her status.

Yet Tory has a shameful secret—a secret so powerful that, if exposed, it could strip her of her position and disgrace her family forever. Tory's blood is tainted . . . by magic.

When a shocking accident forces Tory to demonstrate her despised skill, the secret she's fought so hard to hide is revealed for all to see. She is immediately exiled to Lackland Abbey, a reform school for young men and women in her position. There she will learn to suppress her deplorable talents and maybe, if she's one of the lucky ones, be able to return to society.

But Tory's life is about to change forever. All that she's ever known or considered important will be challenged. What lies ahead is only the beginning of a strange and wonderful journey into a world where destiny and magic come together, where true love and friendship find her, and where courage and strength of character are the only things that determine a young girl's worth.

Dark Mirror is M.J. Putney's first young adult novel, and it's enthralling—an historical fantasy that's both fast-paced and deeply moving.

A well told story that merges real characters with an historical event that makes both exhilarating. Characters are extremely well developed and the line of events is perfect.

I love all of Putney's books, but I was a little reluctant to try this series since it was her first foray into young adult writing. I shouldn't have been concerned. Putney's storytelling ability made this just as wonderful a read as all her other books.
