Magical Creatures and Regency Manners: Sorcerer to the Crown

14 Aug

Lovely combination of a magical culture set within Regency England. From stuffy men’s clubs to Malaysian vampires, racism (the two protagonists are people of color), sexism (upper class women are too delicate to handle magic – not!) and politics, this was a fun mash-up of Regency manners with magic. Much like a steam punk world, magic is simply part of the infrastructure, with Zacharias Wythe, Sorcerer Royal of the Unnatural Philosophers Society charged with keeping England’s magic flowing. Zacharias, a freed slave, finds unexpected help from Prunella Gentleman, a teacher at a school for girls, with boundless ambition to use her magic.
Some reviewers mention struggling initially with the Regency tone & language – versed as I am in that medium 😉 I did not.
The book is titled #1 so one would assume there will be additional titles in the series. I look forward to reading them!
