England’s magic is drying up, and Sorcerer Royal Zacharias Wythe travels to the border of Fairyland to find out why. In his travels, he meets a most unusual young woman who has him believing firmly that the strictures against teaching magic to women are wasteful and wrong.

Since the Society of Unnatural Philosophers already doesn’t respect him, Wythe knows convincing them to teach women will be nearly impossible.

The first in a new trilogy, Cho’s debut novel is a delight. Somewhere between the styles of Susanna Clarke and Gail Carriger, this Regency-era tale of magic and colonial politics is well paced and full of great one-liners.
