About the Author

H.G. Parry lives in a book-infested flat on the Kapiti Coast in New Zealand, which she shares with her sister, a cat, three guinea pigs, and two over-active rabbits. She holds a Ph.D. in English Literature from Victoria University of Wellington and has taught English, film, and media studies. --This text refers to the paperback edition.


"The Magician's Daughter is that most rare and precious thing: a brand-new classic, both wholly original and wonderfully nostalgic. It's an absolute treasure." ―Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January

"[D]elightful and whimsical...Another gem of a novel from a talented writer." 

"Brilliantly-imagined. I love the way Parry blends mythic elements with wit and heart. A fast pace, period detail and an intriguing cast of real, flawed people make
The Magician's Daughter a book to be absolutely devoured."―Lucy Holland, author of Sistersong

The Magician's Daughter is innovative fairy tale and deftly researched historical fiction in one, full of captivating magic and richly drawn characters. HG Parry crafts an evocative world rife with a struggle for equity, justice, and the occasional miracle that readers won't be able to forget."―Rowenna Miller, author of Torn

"A compelling journey into a world of fading myth and mystery, evoking the magic of
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by way of The Dark is Rising. The old magic runs deep in H. G. Parry's veins. The Magician's Daughter is a true delight."―Cameron Johnston, author of The Maleficent Seven

"Draws you in and makes you believe that magic does exist. Animal familiars, an island that only appears on certain days, and a young heroine who learns the depths of her strength. I absolutely adored it!"―
Andrea Stewart, author of The Bone Shard Daughter

The Magician's Daughter casts a spell with its warm and subtle prose. Parry has created an enchantment of a novel―a coming-of-age story teeming with magic, with characters striving to change an unjust world―this is a book to be savoured."―E. J. Beaton, author of The Councillor

"[F]illed with heartbreak and wonder. Highly recommended for fans of heroine's journeys, steampunk alternate worlds, and stories about what happens after the magic goes away." ―
Library Journal

"Parry continues her hot streak of well-researched historical fantasy with this mix of bildungsroman and love letter to the 19th-century English canon...The magic system—which posits magic as a nonrenewable resource—works wonderfully as a metaphor for capitalism after 19th-century industrialization. Parry’s fans will not be disappointed."―
Publishers Weekly

"Parry has written another winning fantasy novel full of adventure, found family, and magic. This is a fully realized world that feels like a homage to the classic fantasy tales of Diana Wynne Jones...For readers who love a great fantasy adventure."―

"Beautifully crafted...Even devotees of fantasy’s darker corners will take solace in 
The Magician’s Daughter, a little paean to storybook endings and happily ever afters."―BookPage

The Magician’s Daughter is a delightful little fantasy that pulls at all the right heartstrings...For those who fondly remember the works of Frances Hodgson Burnett or Lewis Carroll, this novel will definitely be your (bread, butter and) jam."
Wall Street Journal

"The Magician’s Daughter is a splendid piece of writing...If you’re looking for something to recapture some magic in your life, something that touches the bit inside all of us that dreams impossible dreams, then I can’t recommend this book enough."


"A charming romp of an old-school coming of age fantasy about family and magic that will take your heart for a wild ride."―

"A gorgeously atmospheric coming-of-age novel that's interested in power and marginalization...
The Magician's Daughter is a triumph of skill and technique. It gets sense of place brilliantly. It interleaves the numinous and the quotidian delightfully. Its imagery is really striking. Biddy is a compelling character, sheltered but not naive. Her story is a journey of discovery, a coming-of-age into a wider world that leaps off the page in vivid, heart-rending detail. The novel's treatment of a parent-child relationship and the child's discovery that parents can be terribly flawed and fail and yet both still love you and be worthy of love is replete with generosity and emotional truth."
Locus --This text refers to the paperback edition.
