THE FATE OF ENGLISH MAGIC LIES IN THEIR HANDS...
In Regency London, Zacharias Wythe is England's first African Sorcerer Royal. He leads the eminent Royal Society of Unnatural Philosophers, but a malicious faction seeks to remove him by fair means or foul. Meanwhile, the Society is failing its vital duty - to keep stable the levels of magic within His Majesty's lands. The Fairy Court is blocking its supply, straining England's dangerously declining magical stores. And now the government is demanding to use this scarce resource in its war with France.
Ambitious orphan Prunella Gentleman is desperate to escape the school where she's drudged all her life, and a visit by the beleaguered Sorcerer Royal seems the perfect opportunity. For Prunella has just stumbled upon English magic's greatest discovery in centuries - and she intends to make the most of it.
At his wits' end, the last thing Zachariah needs is a female magical prodigy! But together, they might just change the nature of sorcery, in Britain and beyond.

2.5 Sorcerer to the Crown: Or Pride & Prejudice & Magic
Book, it's not you. It's me. This year I read several books that really helped me pin down what I do and do not enjoy in my reading. This book helped me realize that I really don't enjoy historical fiction. It's just a matter of taste. Cho really embraces regency fiction, and she nails it. Unfortuna...

4.0 Sorcerer to the Crown
The Royal Society of Unnatural Philosophers maintains the magic within His Majesty’s lands. But lately, the once proper institute has fallen into disgrace, naming an altogether unsuitable gentleman as their Sorcerer Royal and allowing England’s stores of magic to bleed dry. At his wit’s end, Zachar...

5.0 Sorcerer to the Crown - Zen Cho
This books has all the things I love. Except penguins and cats. It was blurbed by Novick, Leckie, Carriger, and Milan, among many others. If you've been looking for a fantasy Regency book with an intersectional way of telling the story, then this is the one. The prospect of more fills me with deligh...

4.5 So charming!
This book was not at all what I expected...but I enjoyed it a lot. I don't think the cover or blurbs actually capture this book very well. And I don't think my description would either. I put my thoughts earlier on some of what struck me and I enjoyed, and it's too much to put down all here.. So l...
