A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians by H. G. Parry


Reviewed by bookseller Olivia:

“A dark, sweeping epic that infuses magic into the Age of Enlightenment, transforming real-life Revolutionaries and abolitionists into magicians. Top tier worldbuilding that takes us from Robespierre’s Paris to Toussaint Louverture in Haiti – and beautiful writing which humanises all the politicians and rebels we meet along the way. For fans of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.”

It is the Age of Enlightenment – of new and magical political movements, from the necromancer Robespierre calling for revolution in France to the weather mage Toussaint L’Ouverture leading the slaves of Haiti in their fight for freedom, to the bold new Prime Minister William Pitt weighing the legalisation of magic amongst commoners in Britain and abolition throughout its colonies overseas. But amidst all of the upheaval of the enlightened world, there is an unknown force inciting all of human civilisation into 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 chaos.
