(Library Journal (starred review))
"Mercedes Lackey fans will thoroughly enjoy this fun escapade into turn-of-the-century England.... I find Ms. Lackey’s Elemental Masters series a true frolic into fantasy and Reserved for the Cat is no exception. Witty and dry, the magic in her books is always so believable, as are her characters."
(Fantasy Book Spot)
"The Elemental Masters novels are beautiful romantic adult fairy tales.... Master magician Mercedes Lackey writes a charming fantasy."
(Midwest Book Review)
"Once again, Mercedes Lackey has created a rich, lush depiction of England's Elemental Masters, combining elemental magic, fantastic creatures, coming-of-age elements, and the realities of war.... Lackey's elegant wordcraft combines humor with the knife edge of desperation.... I highly advise people to read this book, and I desperately urge Mercedes Lackey to keep writing the Elemental Masters Novels."
