Based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen. *** This book takes place in an alternate Victorian England where Elemental Masters (magicians) and Talents (psychics) abound. Sarah Jane comes to London from Africa to attend the Horton School where she will receive training for her Talent as well as learn the more usual academic subjects. Sara is a true medium and there is an Elemental Master in London who is using ghosts for nefarious purposes. Thus Sarah becomes a threat to be disposed of before the Master's plans can be foiled.
Set in Victorian London-where magic is real and Elemental Masters control the powers of Fire, Water, Air, and Earth-the fourth novel in this best-selling series tells the story of Lord Alderscroft, Master of the British Elemental Masters Council-the most powerful Fire Master ever to lead the Council. Loosely based on The Snow Queen, The Wizard of London delves into Lord Alderscroft's youth, when he was bespelled by an evil Elemental Master who hoped to use him for political gain.
