One of the most innovative designers of his time, Rene Lalique was a leader in the decorative arts. Magician of Light begins in his adolescent years in Paris as a striving apprentice.


Meanwhile, across the channel, Lucinda Haliburton is facing her own struggles, including a dysfunctional family and history of mental illness. Her grandfather, Lord Haliburton, suggests a visit to his archaeologic dig in Egypt in an effort to help her escape her difficulties at home-but the trip ends in disaster, and Lucinda returns to England with the belief that she is being preyed upon by ancient Egyptian spirits.


Rene and Lucinda's paths cross when he leaves Paris to continue his studies at a nearby art college. His fascination with Egypt sparks a connection with Lucinda and romance blooms-but is complicated by her mental condition. Overactive imagination, insanity, or a real haunting? Will their love see them through?


Magician of Light touches on the truth of Lalique's illustrious life, the people most important to him, and the anguish of some of those personal relationships, creating a unique view of his real life and a compelling storybook love story.
