Summary: Tea, Love … and Revolution!
The Rebel Mechanics aren’t the only group plotting revolution against the magical British Empire. There are rebel magisters, as well, and Verity Newton and her magister employer, Lord Henry, know that the only way for the revolution to succeed is if both groups work together. A diplomatic mission seems like the perfect opportunity for them to meet with rebels in other colonies and gather support—right under the governor’s nose.
From drawing rooms, ballrooms, and the harbor in Boston to the streets of Charleston, Verity and Henry find themselves up against stubborn factions of both magisters and Mechanics and increasingly aware that they can only really count on each other as their relationship deepens. It may take a real crisis to unite the rebel movements and rally them to the cause—but could such a crisis also tear them apart?

Actual Review: Rebel Magisters is the sequel to Shanna Swendson’s Steampunk HIstorical YA alternate reality, Rebel Mechanics. RM and it’s sequel R Magisters is how she percieves the American REvolution and subsequent history would have been if the British have magic.
Verity and her employer, Magister Lord Henry have already met the Rebel Mechanics and helped them escape out of the city with their machines to avoid being captured by the British Government so they can keep working towards an eventual revolution. RMagisters finds Verity and Henry beginning to entertain the idea of how can they manage a revolution that could win. They undesrstand that it would most likely need to be a combination of the Rebel Mechanics and Magisters that are more positively inclined to a revolution. All the while keeping Verity’s magic hidden and any budding feelings at bay.
We get to see a whole new side to quite a few of the beloved characters which is quite fun as well as meet some new characters as well who will be vital to the plot. Flora gets some much needed character growth and is set up to have even more in book 3 which is delightful.
Another surpise is that we get to see other cities within the world Shanna has created and how some of their magisters see the world. It’s setting up to be quite the revolution if it pans out properly.
Rebel Magisters has some major plot twists come up and makes me eager to read book 3 and hopefully there is even more in this world because i love it all.
