Críticas:

"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
"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

Fast-paced and witty...Should appeal to fans of Mary Robinette Kowal and Gail Carriger. Elizabeth Bear, author of "Steles of the Sky
" Fun, smart, great characters, ...excellent magic...Adelight of a book. Kat Howard, author of "Roses & Rot"
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] knits together a dizzying array of taut story lines populated by complex characters with interesting backstories. "Publishers Weekly "(starred review)"

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.

"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

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)
Acaptivating debut that, aside from examining both gender and racial prejudice, tells an entertaining story with wit and consummate skill. "The Guardian"(UK)"

Reseña del editor:

"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 Majesty s lands. But lately, the once proper institute has fallen into disgrace, naming an altogether unsuitable gentleman a freed slave who doesn t even have a familiar as their Sorcerer Royal, and allowing England s once profuse stores of magic to slowly bleed dry. At least they haven t stooped so low as to allow women to practice what is obviously a man s profession
At his wit s end, Zacharias Wythe, Sorcerer Royal of the Unnatural Philosophers and eminently proficient magician, ventures to the border of Fairyland to discover why England s 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 Britain and the world at large "
