Part of the Sorcerer to the Crown novels series


'A sheer delight from beginning to end' - Samantha ShannonA sparkling magical adventure from this Hugo Award-winning author.

We travel to Regency London, Fairyland and an enchanted island.

Sisters are separated, plots thicken and there's a new contender for the throne of Fairy.

Fairyland's future lies in doubt . . . The enchanted island of Janda Baik, in the Malay Archipelago, has long been home to witches. And Muna and her sister Sakti wake on its shores under a curse, which has quite stolen away their memories.

Their only hope of salvation lies in distant Britain, where the Sorceress Royal runs a controversial academy for female magicians.

But the pair travel via the formidable Fairy Queen's realm, where Sakti simply disappears. To save her sister, Muna must learn to navigate Regency London's high society and trick the English into believing she's a magical prodigy.

But when the Sorceress Royal's friends become accidentally embroiled in a plot - involving the Fairy Queen's contentious succession - Muna is drawn right in.

She must also find Sakti, break their curse and somehow stay out of trouble.

But if fairyland's true queen does finally return, trouble may find her first . . . A joyous mash-up of Jane Austen and high fantasy' M.

R. CareyThis standalone adventure is set in the same world as Zen Cho's award-winning novel - The Sorcerer to the Crown.
