Product description

Review

A comedy of manners ... 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 * Magic, manners and dragons in Regency England . . . a mix of Jane Austen, P. G. Wodehouse and Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, and all its own thing. Glorious * Aliette de Bodard * Zen Cho is spectacular, a confident and exciting new voice * Paul Cornell * Compulsively readable and wickedly funny, this magical marriage of Jane Austen and P. G. Wodehouse delivers love, laughs, and a thoroughly modern sensibility, and will keep you reading long into the night. I loved it * Lavie Tidhar * I would marry this book if I could * Justine Larbalestier * 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 * A warm, funny debut novel by a brilliant new talent * Charles Stross * Fabulous! If you like Austen or Patrick O'Brian, or magic and humor like Susannah Clarke, or simply a very fun read, you will really, really, enjoy this * Ann Leckie * An enchanting cross between Georgette Heyer and Susanna Clarke, full of delights and surprises * Naomi Novik *

Book Description

A treat for fans of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell and Georgette Heyer - a Regency romp with a pinch of fairyland.
