A review by aloyokon
Sorcerer to the Crown, by Zen Cho


This book has beautiful prose and really does feel that it's set in a fantasy version of early 19th century Britain.

In a world where real magic is a thing, it's a really bad to start running out of yours. And when that happens to this mystical version of Regency England, the Sorcerer Royal, Zacharias, has to get to the bottom of what's going on. Along the way, he meets Priscilla, a woman with incredible skills and a hidden past.

Shouldn't be too hard, right? Well, except for the bigotry against the first black head sorcerer and multiple assassination attempts against him. After all, our mundane version of the 19th century isn't the only world where prejudice is a thing...
