Published: Bloomsbury Publishing - August 11th, 2020

In this unusual novel that's perfect for readers fresh off the high of R.F. Kuang's Babel, two magicians change history by bringing magic back to nineteenth-century England. It's quiet, rich in historical detail, and employs good direction of it's magic. It's not to miss if you enjoy expansive world building, humor that's reminiscent of P.G. Wodehouse, and won't mind reading an 800 page novel (be not afraid!!).

Witchcraft is, as it was during the real life Salem Witch Trials, condemned and often punishable by death. Alix E. Harrow effortlessly weaves together not only the suffrage movement of the turn of the twentieth century with modern day feminism, but also feminism as a whole with magic.
