Sorcerer to the Crown
Sorcerer to the Crown: A Sorcerer Royal Novel | Zen Cho
In this sparkling debut, magic and mayhem clash with the British elite...The Royal Society of Unnatural Philosophers, one of the most respected organizations throughout all of England, has long been tasked with maintaining magic within His Majestys lands. But lately, the once proper institute has fallen into disgrace, naming an altogether unsuitable gentlemana freed slave who doesnt even have a familiaras their Sorcerer Royal, and allowing Englands once profuse stores of magic to slowly bleed dry. At least they havent stooped so low as to allow women to practice what is obviously a mans professionAt his wits end, Zacharias Wythe, Sorcerer Royal of the Unnatural Philosophers and eminently proficient magician, ventures to the border of Fairyland to discover why Englands magical stocks are drying up. But when his adventure brings him in contact with a most unusual comrade, a woman with immense power and an unfathomable gift, he sets on a path which will alter the nature of sorcery in all of Britainand the world at large

Loved this story of magic, treachery, and politics. Prunella and Zacharias were wonderful complex characters. The ending was not a great surprise but I enjoyed the journey so very much. I intend to find the next book and read it as well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love everything about this book. Had to force myself to slow down this second reading, as it only took me a day the first time. Took me two days this time. The voice is one of my absolute favorites, the protagonists are two of my favorite fictional characters. I have ridiculous high hopes for the sequel. 5 out of 5 on GR.

Well...this is awkward. Everyone I know who has read this loves it...like LOVES it and I feel like I'm missing somsthing or...got the wrong book? I was bored the whe damn time! Its like another Cruel Prince situation where I have no idea ehat I'm missing while 99% of readers would have themselves buried with this book.

I just...meh about the whole cast (though props for the diversity), the magic, the world. I just...dont get the point?

Reread! Now I'm ready for The True Queen. Prunella is a delight and the ending is cute.

9th #WyrdandWonder read! Not on my #TBRbingo card at all, but is from the list of 22 I picked for this month. (Did I mention someone bet me I can't finish all 22? Dangerous, I hate not taking bets, though if I want to win I need to read faster!)

I really enjoyed this! If you liked Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell, or if you like the idea of JS&MrN but found the footnotes tedious, pick this up!!! Very Jane Austen-ish, a bit slow to start, and I still haven‘t decided if I truly like Prunella, but overall a good read! 4 🌟‘s

I mentally cast Jameela Jamil as Prunella early on, and aside from the fact that she‘s probably too tall, this passage suggests to me that this may have been a good choice.

The pace of the story was wonky. Good introduction of characters, then it crawls to a turtle pace and I need to make myself go on. It picks up, the characters finally meet and the magical rules are shown. The turning point character, Mak Genggang, finally makes her entrance. I love this character. She's the spark that made me continue and ultimately made me persevere in reading. I found the ending a bit contrive. Still, Prunella rocks.
