Zen Cho ✓ 1 DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD ✓ Sorcerer to the Crown En outrageous than any of these things a female magical prodigyAmbitious orphan Prunella Gentleman is desperate to escape the school where she has drudged all her life and a visit by the Sorcerer Royal seems the perfect opportunity For Prunella has just stumbled upon English magic's greatest discovery in centuries and she intends to make the most of it. Your amoral ingenuity in the pursuit of your interest is perfectly shocking said Zacharias severelyYes isn t it said Prunella pleasedWelcome back friends I finished Sorcerer to the Crown written by Zen Cho and published in 2015 A historical fantasy novel it won the Best Newcomer award at the 2016 British Fantasy AwardsSo What s It AboutZacharias Wythe is Sorcerer Royal of the Unnatural Philosophers an esteemed position that he has a tenuous hold on because of the racist pushback he faces from the rest of the society On top of this the stores of magic in England are drying up and no one knows why While dealing with all of this Zacharias happens to cross paths with Prunella Gentleman a devious young woman with extreme magical power They are soon entangled in a mess of intrigue and danger that will change the course of magic in England foreverWhat I ThoughtSorcerer to the Crown is a remarkable debut novel emulating the style of a Regency era novel with great success I have read a few other books in this style most significantly Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell and Sorcery and Celia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot While Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell fully immerses itself in historical minutiae and archaic details and Sorcery and Celia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot puts the most emphasis on Austenian style romance Sorcerer to the Crown finds something of a middle ground There is a touch of romance but it is mostly interested in exploring the prejudices and power dynamics of the Regency era through the metaphor of magic It manages to balance its astute social commentary with charming wit and grace a feat that would make Austen proud Add to this two complex and compelling lead characters in Prunella and Zacharias and you ve got a winner for sureThe F WordSorcerer to the Crown features an excellent treatment of magic in a historical setting because it argues that magic would be no different from any other form of power in its misuse corruption and propagation of entrenched prejudices In this book we see how the sorcerers of England attempt to use magic as a tool of colonialism racism and sexism The matter of racism is explored through both Zacharias s and Prunella s stories as Zacharias was born a slave and Prunella is half IndianZacharias s life is dictated by the ways other delegitimize him because of his skin color he is constantly doubted disrespected and ultimately threatened and endangered because he is a man of color in power I think his story goes a long way towards demonstrating the futility of respectability politics no matter how many times he proves himself to be competent ualified and the perfect gentleman he is still treated with contempt and disrespect by many of the other sorcerers As he says to Prunella It is not within my power to make you respectable I cannot even do that for myselfNo matter how perfectly he behaves he will never be perfect enough to make up for the transgression of being black There is also the matter of his secret anger and resentment towards his benefactor Sir Stephen who purchased him when he was a child Did not Sir Stephen purchase your parents as wellNo said Zacharias Presumably he did not discern the same potential in themThe statement brought up the old anger and confusion followed by the accustomed guilt that he should be so ungrateful as to resent the man who had rescued him from bondage And yet he did resent Sir Stephen even nowThe relationship with Sir Stephen is a complicated one to say the least There are true regard and love between the two of them but Zacharias has spent a long time forbidding himself to acknowledge the validity of his confusion anger and resentment These feelings of conflict arise not only in his individual relationship with Sir Stephen but also in his role as the Sorcerer Royal dedicated to serving the goals of a country that has very much been an enemy to Zacharias and countless other people of color around the world You are called upon to advance the good of this nation and none other Your allegiance is no to magic alone nor to all humanity but to your own portion of humanity to the country that nurtured you And enslaved my parents said ZachariasWhat I especially appreciated about Cho s depiction of historical racism is that it s also intersectional Prunella and Zacharias experience the world in very different ways as men and women of color and Prunella is very pragmatic about the fact that her primary goal is to find a rich husband because there are certain opportunities that will simply not be afforded to her until she is seen as a legitimate figure within London s social circles and there are a very limited number of ways that she can make herself respectable as a poor young unmarried woman of color Her goal is to knock off the poor and unmarried descriptors and hope that that takes her far enough In addition Zacharias starts out the story not thinking twice about the way that women are barred from doing magic and he must unlearn his ignorance as he gets to know Prunella His own personal experiences as an outsider because of his race give him empathy for her experiences as an outsider because of bother her gender and her raceThere s one uote in particular that I really loved from his process of unlearning his sexism Surely feminine magic must be curbed magic being so peculiarly detrimental to women s delicate frames Besides magic was too hard to come by in these days for it to be frittered away in women s frivolities ballgowns and christening gowns and gowns of other descriptionsYet the moment this thought passed through Zacharias s mind his conscience presented the image of Lady Wythe as a counterpoint Anyone less likely to waste magic in fripperies was impossible to imagine unless it were the cooks maids charwomen herbwives and other females of the lower classes who were permitted to practise their craft in peace because they employed it for the benefit of their bettersFor that matter what could be wasteful than the manner in which the heedless young members of the Theurgist s amused themselves Magical fireworks and talking reflections were the least of their extravagancesZacharias begins to understand in this section that the gendered restriction on magic usage is at its heart a matter of hypocrisy The men in power justify women s powerlessness through the use of stereotypes that they themselves embody and in fact have no basis in the way that women truly are What s they are perfectly willing to turn around and ignore these rules and justifications entirely so long as they have the power of class privilege to ensure that poor women only use their magic in the service of their bettersMatters of colonialism are primarily explored through Britain s negotiations with the island of Janda Baik located in the Malay peninsula The government is concerned about placating the island s leader because of its incredibly valuable location to Britain s colonial ventures and asks Zacharias to intervene in the island s conflicts using his magic Enter Mak Genggang a witch who is directly opposed to the island s current leader and Britain s colonial ventures She and her witches embody resistance to the patriarchal and colonialist powers that are attempting to control their magic and their island and it is not insignificant that they are also protecting vampiresses who became undead because they were wronged in their lives It s also notable that Prunella s mother was betrayed by her father who deceived her with the goal of obtaining Indian riches for Britain and that Prunella comes into her own power by accessing this portion of her legacy in fullAs a final point I d like to just take a moment to celebrate Prunella in

Zen Cho ✓ 1 DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD ✓ Sorcerer to the Crown In Regency London Zacharias Wythe is England's first African Sorcerer Royal And that's only the first of his problems He must juggle the conflicting demands of a wayward Royal Society of Unnatural Philosophers where a faction schemes to remove him from his position by fair means or foul He must cope with the Fairy Court refusing to grant Britain the ma. It s never a good sign when it takes well over 150 pgs to get the story startedreallytruly notThis book dragged Nothing really worked for me Nothing If I could get that time back I would I want it back so much THE PREMISE aka not a bad start The British elite conuest consist of magicians called thaumaturges who are racist sexist and all have all sorts of petty bullying behavior They are all jerksAnd they are all pissed Why The new Sorcerer Royal Zacharias Wythe inherited the position based on his magic talent and intellectoh and he happens to be a former freed slave The nerve of himDespite none of them seemingly owning slaves they are pissed that he manages to conduct magic despite being so inferiorAnnnnnnnnnnd then there s the other elephant in the room We are a laughingstock a nation of hundreds of enchanters and nothing to enchant with So there s another reason to hate Zarcharias The magic is drying up and the Sorcerer Royal can t magically fix it Oh And there s one other reason to hate him Nothing disgusted a thaumaturge so much as a witch He visits what passes as a school for witches and finds one far stronger than he ever expected Essentially everyone hates Zarcharias but they hate Prunella Gentleman even because she s dark AND she is a woman AND she s a insanely powerful witchIn additionokay I m bored That s all the summary I want to do The premise does sound good There s so few YA books with people of color at the forefront and it has a strong female lead to boot Soyou may be asking what went wrong Glad you asked THE WRITING aka are we there yet No What about now She was no great reader and her choice was written in so laborious a style that that she found herself rereading the same page several times without absorbing any of the sense It took AT LEAST four times as long to say anything in this book FOUR TIMESWhy Because the author is attempting to this pseudo old timey British Victorian language super posh formal and rigidand good lord It took FOREVER There was so much bowing and kowtowing politic rhetoric and pleases and thank yous that I just couldn t stand it It was maddening THE FEMINISM aka put a ring on it I understand Miss Gentleman will venture to find herself a husband and only desires assistance in gaining access to the best society Essentially Prunella spends the first half of the book as an obstinent young woman She can do magic She knows what she wants and she will get it in a time where women were NEVER expected to do anything but suppress any and all individualityIt may take her seven or eight sentences to make her point but by gosh she will burst through that glass ceilingThen Prunella flipped like a dimeThe inconsistency bothered me so much Don t get me wrong I am all for a strong female lead who also wants to get married My issue comes from the way it happened One minute she s all for education and empowerment and literally the next page she s asking if she can find a husband and settling down claiming it s all she wanted all along No character development no explanation no hint at all that she even wanted to get marriedIt was matchmaking time and woe be the stuffy English jerk who stood in her way It seems impossible these days to find any truly pretty girls it makes even a dark little thing like Miss Gentleman seem a phoenix which brings us to my last point THE STRUGGLE aka everyone was a needless jerk because reasons Magicians are obstinate creatures but they can be persuaded and they esteem power above all things Okay so I m all for a book that rips down stereotypes and empowers people I love it when the underdog climbs to the top and shows up all the naysayers and disbelieversbut that didn t happen The book set everything up with Zacharias despite being brilliant at the bottom of the pack He spent his entire childhood dealing with rampart racism and is now expected to lead a bunch of racist ahole magicians Then there was Prunella arguably lower than the low despite having ungodly powers She dealt with rampart sexism and racism and decides to rise above itEverywhere we looked was society showing its ugly sideand amazingly powerful andor perfect characters who must fight to the topIt could have been the language or the setting very dry despite the magicbut I just didn t care enough to want to see it fixed The author didn t create a world that could be changed easily without decades of hard effort and I don t want to stick around for thatWhen I read something I don t want to read 100 pages of this jerk saying so and so can t do blank because of her womanly weaknesses only to see her prove him wrongTHEN he finds the next issue to latch on to and to be proven wrong again and again ang againIt was frustrating to read and disappointing that throughout the book we were just hitting our heads at literally the same exact issues Over And Over For hundreds of pages Overall aka thankgawdthistortureisover I didn t feel connected to any of the characters The ones that were likable were so high falutin with their words that I couldn t stand them The feminism felt like a joke a character flips her personality like a switch and conveniently the plot gains several feet of progressionAnd the whole world was so frustratingly obstinate that I celebrated as soon as the book was overYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter
