Steadfast (Elemental Masters #9) by Mercedes Lackey

Another sterling example of why Mercedes Lackey is one of my all-time favorite authors.  She can take you to new worlds and new times and you feel as if you are there.  I am character driven.  If I can relate to the characters in anyway the story is that much better.  Mercedes Lackey does great characters.
Untrained and unawakened Fire Magician Kate is on the run from her abusive husband.  In Edwardian Britain the law is on his side.  She is his to do with as he wishes.  Dogs and horses have more rights than she does.  She ends up in Brighton where she gets a job as a magicians assistant to Air Magician Lionel Hawkins.  Lionel and Jack Prescott, the doorman at the theater who is a wounded vet and a Fire Magician, help Kate realize and train her gifts.  She hopes that it will be enough to save her if/when her husband finds her.

Fans of Amanda Quick will enjoy this series.  They can be read stand alone.
