Published: Saga Press - September 26th, 2017

In An Unkindness of Magicians, Kat Howard imagines a war among the magical families of New York City, conducted by duels brilliant, gorgeous, and fatal, to decide which of the Houses will rule the rest. Breaking into this circle of genteel violence is Sydney, the novel’s heroine, an outsider of extraordinary magical ability--and rage. For Sydney knows, bitterly and personally, the dreadful secret of the magical aristocrats’ power. Follow Sydney as she pursues her vengeance and fights to free the magical world of corruption, in a tale that is exciting, imaginative, and dark. Magic has its price. Even Sydney must pay it. Highly recommended! – David
