FIVE STARS! Another fine book from Ms.
Knight! Her meticulous research into this period piece shines
throughout this wonderful story. From beginning to end, her words
paint the scenes with rich visuals which enrich the story line of
the two main characters. You will be invested in this story after
just a few pages and will not want to put it down. This book
deserves its place among the other novels of Ms. Knight.

FIVE HEARTS!!! Ms. Knight has given us
a truly fun story! I enjoyed how she wove the magic into this, and
that coin was just great! Another thing I liked about her story is
the little pieces of history she added, like the line about the
Marquess of Londonderry…of course, I’m a complete period geek
and had already looked this up years ago. This is such a good
read! I especially liked the epilogue where we see who Amanda
passes the coin to for it’s next magic turn! Oh, and yes, I have
read at least one other story by Ms. Knight (which I liked) and
now I have to find her other work since I loved this story!

THE MAGIC TOKEN
is an enchanting take on the Cinderella fairytale, complete with
an evil step-mother and fairy godmother. This is a
well-researched, well-written story with wonderful
characterizations. The duke, who has overcome his abusive
childhood, is a great hero and Amanda is a caring and
compassionate heroine. There was, also, a very pleasing secondary
romance between the squire's son and the Portuguese woman's
granddaughter. THE MAGIC TOKEN was a great Regency read, with some
magical elements. If you like fairytales, give THE MAGIC TOKEN a
Magical and loads of fun!... Susanne Marie Knight has taken a
magical plot device and whipped up a charming tale in THE MAGIC
TOKEN. Her characters are full blown and interesting, while the
minor characters add spice. Ms. Knight's writing is bright, and
full of that Regency flavor readers enjoy. A sprightly romp which
makes for a blast of a read!
Marie Knight is a talented, versatile author whose e-books run
from this light traditional Regency with a magical element, to
time travel, sci-fi romance ..., paranormal romantic suspense,
mystery and on to an upcoming contemporary romance.
Roses! Ms. Knight was able to weave a tale of magic. The golden
coin is suppose to bring the person good fortune but it seems good
fortune for the book as well! This was a very lighthearted read
and very easy to finish in one sitting -- so be prepared to spend
time with this story from beginning to end!
enjoyable Regency adventure! The characters are vivid and
sympathetic, and the story rolls along nicely. There are hints of
true magic in the story--the good luck charm is depicted as a
token with real power--but the romance and most of the story
itself rests on the usual day-to-day lives of the characters.
Knight writers Regency romance well, her language and the concerns
of the characters clearly reflect the culture they are living in.
