A treat for fans of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell and Georgette Heyer - a Regency romp with a pinch of fairyland.
Zen Cho was born and raised in Malaysia and now lives in London. She was a finalist for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer for her short fiction and recently won the Crawford Award. Sorcerer to the Crown is Zen Cho's debut novel.
An enchanting cross between Georgette Heyer and Susanna Clarke,
full of delights and surprises. -- Naomi Novik
A warm, funny debut novel by a brilliant new talent * Charles Stross *
Compulsively readable and wickedly funny, this magical marriage of Jane Austen and P. G. Wodehouse delivers love, laughs, and a thoroughly modern sensibility, and will keep you reading long into the night. I loved it * Lavie Tidhar *
Fabulous! If you like Austen or Patrick O'Brian, or magic and humor like Susannah Clarke, or simply a very fun read, you will really, really, enjoy this * Ann Leckie *
A delightful and enchanting novel that uses sly wit and assured style to subvert expectations while it always, unfailingly, entertains. I loved it * Kate Elliott *
