Parry, H. G.
A sweeping tale of revolution and wonder in a world not quite like our own.
It is the Age of Enlightenment- of new magical political movements, from the hypnotist Robespierre calling for revolution in France, to the weather-mage Toussaint L'Ouverture leading the slaves of Saint-Domingue to freedom, to the bold prime minister William Pitt legislating the use of magic in Britain.
But amid the upheaval, there is an unknown force inciting violent conflict. And it will require the combined efforts of revolutionaries, magicians and abolitionists to unmask this hidden enemy before the whole world falls to darkness and chaos.
