A Wizard’s Guide to Defensive Baking by T. Kingfisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I admit that I thought T. Kingfisher (U. Vernon)'s other works were anywhere between pretty good and pretty okay. Before I began this one, I only really knew the title and liked the idea of it, but I didn't know what to really expect.
Fortunately, the proof is in the baking, and the baking, indeed, was really good. YA, light magical effects (at first), and a real love of baking and making her gingerbread men. So far, so good, but with the evil wizard hunting down ALL the mages, no matter how quirky, it becomes a matter of survival.
And that's where it gets really good. Food can, after all, defeat an army. Muahahahaha
Very cute, delightful.
