Sorcerer to the Crown

Audiobook
One of NPR's 50 Favorite Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books of the Past DecadeMagic and mayhem clash with the British elite in this whimsical and sparkling debut.
The Royal Society of Unnatural Philosophers maintains the magic within His Majesty's lands.

At his wit's end, Zacharias Wythe, Sorcerer Royal of the Unnatural Philosophers, ventures to the border of Fairyland to discover why England's magical stocks are drying up, an adventure that brings him in contact with Prunella Gentlewoman, a woman with immense power and an unfathomable gift, and sets him on a path which will alter the nature of sorcery in all of Britain—and the world at large ...
"A captivating debut that, aside from examining both gender and racial prejudice, tells an entertaining story with wit and consummate skill."—The Guardian (UK)
