The exciting debut of a sparkling, Regency-era set fantasy series. In the hallowed halls of Oxford's Merlin College, the most talented - and highest born - sons of the Kingdom of Britain are taught the intricacies of magickal theory. But what dazzles can also destroy, as Gray Marshall is about to discover. Even though she has no talent of her own, Sophie Callender longs to be educated in the lore of magick. Her father has kept her isolated at the estate and forbidden her interest; everyone knows that teaching arcane magickal theory to women is the height of impropriety. But against her father's wishes, Sophie has studied his ancient volumes on the subject.

This book may appeal to older teens and adults who enjoy a mixture of realistic urban fantasy and period historical fiction. The author uses descriptive storytelling to create a believable alternative history of England, one in which real magic is so integrated into society that Oxford University has an entire college devoted to the study of it. Elements of mystery, political intrigue, and romance drive a plot centering around a young graduate student of magic and the daughter of his nefarious professor. Their adventures continue in two further tales: Lady of Magick, and A Season of Spells.
