Editorial Reviews

Review

“An enchanting cross between Georgette Heyer and Susanna Clarke, full of delights and surprises. Zen Cho unpins the edges of the canvas and throws them wide.”—Naomi Novik, New York Times bestselling author of the Temeraire novels
 
“There are several ways in which Zen Cho’s Sorcerer to the Crown invites comparison with Susanna Clarke’s bestselling, BBC-adapted Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell…Absolutely everything about this book is delightful…Witty, wise and wonderful, Sorcerer to the Crown is an admirable achievement and a deep delight.”—NPR.org

“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, author of the Spiritwalker series

“A deliciously true tale of politics and power in a charming, cruel world—it demands and deserves to be read again and again. Cho has humor and flair to match Pratchett and Heyer plus her own marvelous style.”—Karen Lord, author of The Best of All Possible Worlds 

“Inventive, dangerous, brilliant, unsettling, and adorable, all at the same time. It shatters as many rules as its characters do. Historical Britain will never be the same again, and I can't wait for the next book.”—Courtney Milan, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

Sorcerer to the Crown felt like Pride and Prejudice but with magic and race, which makes Zen Cho Austen crossed with Susanna Clarke and Ignatius Sancho…I am utterly in love.”—Tor.com

“Set in an alternate, magical England during the Napoleonic Wars, Cho’s debut novel is at once a comedy of manners and a sharp metacomment concerning racism and misogyny in the fantasy genre...A classic, gently barbed upper-crust comedy mixed with magical thrills, modern social consciousness, and a hint of political intrigue. A decidedly promising start.”—Kirkus Reviews 

“Cho weaves drama and humor together seamlessly in this tale of a magic-drenched Napoleonic-era Britain...Sorcerer to the Crown establishes Cho as a superior novelist of note.”—RT Book Reviews (Top Pick)

“Cho's delightful debut novel skillfully blends fantasy and intrigue with issues of race and gender politics...Cho's tale knits together a dizzying array of taut story lines populated by complex characters with interesting backstories. Zacharias brings to mind another orphaned young wizard whose combination of grit and melancholy captured readers' hearts, and ingenious, gutsy Prunella simply shines.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A captivating debut that, aside from examining both gender and racial prejudice, tells an entertaining story with wit and consummate skill.”—The Guardian (UK)
