Format: Mass Market Paperback
The product description provides little information about this fantasy series in Georgian England. The Elven Lords employed their magic to suppress the humans, divide the kingdom among themselves, and keep the island isolated from Europe. The Elven Lords are evil rulers of their individual lands, killing humans for their own amusement. The Elven Lords even breed with humans - the resulting child inherits a magical gift. In THE LADY OF THE STORM, Lord Dewhame seeks to destroy his daughter, Cecily, for her power can rival his. Hidden away by her stepfather, Cecily grows up in a seaside village where she can frolic among the sea animals who understand her control of water. When her stepfather leaves the village to aid the Resistance, he casts a spell on it to prevent Lord Dewhame from detecting his daughter's power. Likewise, he tasks Giles, a half Elven/half Human with a magic knife, to disguise himself as the village blacksmith and guard Cecily from afar. When Dewhame's army attacks the village, Giles realizes the spell no longer protects Cecily. Giles reveals himself to Cecily and together they join the Resistance to challenge the Elven Lords.

THE LADY OF THE STORM is the second book in the series. In fact, I read it first to determine if it could be read as a standalone - and it can! I look forward to going back to read the first book, THE FIRE LORD'S LOVER.

I prefer to read Regency Romances. Fantasy does not appeal to me but I was curious about Kennedy's alternate setting in Georgian England. I was pleasantly surprised that she drew me into the Elven Lords' culture - it that was both historically correct and magically enchanting. But it was Kennedy's portrayal of the human struggle - a centuries old tale in every culture - that rendered the four star rating.

I have to remind myself that this is a romance novel first with hints of fantasy, for it certainly isn't fantasy with hints of romance.

On the plus side, I really liked the first book of the series, which is why I purchased this one when it came out. I adore the premise. And I do believe Ms. Kennedy has a flirtitious way with words and is capable of creating utterly charming characters. I am enamored with the world she has envisioned and think the blending of the historical and the fantasy society is fun and inviting.

On the downside, I don't feel that the fantasy aspect went beyond the superficial in this book. Perhaps it is my love of the fantasy genre coming out, but time and again I saw great opportunities on the fantasy side of things that as a reader I felt were either fluffed over or outright ignored. A great example would be towards the end when the enchanting leading lady comments on the sceptors desire to return home. With her personality I thought surely more would come of it. But no. Oh fie, why comment on that when she could talk about wanting to lead a normal life for the hundreth time. Or her love of tall, green, and elfy no matter how much he was getting his kermit on.

And talk about it a lot she did. In fact, it seemed like when she wasn't rehashing her emotions, he was his. Which got to a point where it made it difficult for me to root for either of them. I would also say that the storyline had a lot of similarities as the first one in how it moved forward. I know some will argue with that because it wasn't exact but the movement was close enough.

Kathryne Kennedy's THE LADY OF THE STORM, the second installment of her Georgian fantasy, THE ELVEN LORDS, is a rousing story of adventure and the coming of age interspersed with magical marvels galore.

Half-human Cecily, bastard daughter of the elven lord of Dewhame, never wanted the powers over storm and stream she inherited from her father. And for years, thanks to her stepfather's magical safeguards and the watchful eye of Giles, whom her stepfather appointed as her protector, she lived as an ordinary girl. But Giles longs for action and adventure, and chafes in his role as blacksmith in a provincial village, especially since he desires Cecily. Cecily also desires Giles, but her stepfather has forbidden their yearning.

Then Cecily's stepfather disappears, and so do his shields. The water lord discovers his powerful daughter is still alive and moves to eliminate her. Cecily and Giles flee to the humans who fight to regain England from the elven overlords, and undertake a dangerous quest that leads them straight into the water lord's palace.

Ms. Kennedy has created another fascinating blend of history and magic in the elven kingdom of Dewhame. Merging magic and mores, she again captures Georgian sensibilities against the background of a world of magical wonders. And the magical water wonders are indeed wonderful and fit seamlessly into the story.

But THE LADY OF THE STORM is also a study of heroism. Giles and Cecily, so human in their determination to seek their desires, achieve heroism and their yearned-for love when they finally accept the roles fate has thrust upon them.

Another fine effort from the master of historical magical romance.
