Waiting on Wednesday – Sorcerer to the Crown
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.
OK, so the blurb has “At least they haven’t stooped so low as to allow women to practice what is obviously a man’s profession…” Followed with: “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…” I want to meet this powerful woman! And I want to read to see if what she does to this ‘standard’ of not allowing women in the profession!
Author: Zen Cho
Expected publication: September 1st, 2015
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…

I’d seen the cover of this one earlier this week, didn’t think much of it at the time (because honestly, it’s not very impressive) but I paid more attention to the description this time. Sounds good, I added it to my watch list (again – enabler!)
