    Story
    (1194)

    English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. They can only write long, dull papers about it, while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memory.

    "For adult fans of magic with a terrific narrator"
    Overall

    Simon Prebble is fabulous with voices. I knew who was speaking when several people were in the room. The book is terrific and moved me emotionally, almost to tears, and I certainly laughed out loud as well. I enjoyed it years ago as text and returned to it with a new love for the narrated version. If you have a taste for British culture with magicians thrown in to this "historical" fiction, then this is the book for you.
