Reserved for the Cat – Mercedes Lackey

Reserved for the Cat is the latest of Mercedes’ Elemental Masters series… though I’d not come across any of the earlier ones.  It worked out OK as an entry point, because the main character is an outsider to the whole culture of British magicians and elemental mages.  Our heroine is a young ballerina, whose unexpected success as understudy in the Paris ballet turns into the end of her French ballet career.

So her talking cat convinces her to decamp to England.  The cat arranges a lovely Puss-in-boots backstory for her, and gets her a starring role in a new dance-hall production.

This is sweet and fun, but hardly litra-chair.  Solid escapism.
