ABOUT LADY OF MAGICK
In her second year of studies at Merlin College, Oxford, Sophie Marshall is feeling alienated among fellow students who fail to welcome a woman to their ranks. So when her husband, Gray is invited north as a visiting lecturer at the University in Din Edin, they leap at the chance. There, Sophie’s hunger for magical knowledge can finally be nourished. But soon, Sophie must put her newly learned skills to the test.
Sophie returns home one day to find a note from Gray—he’s been summoned urgently to London. But when he doesn’t return, and none of her spells can find a trace of him, she realizes something sinister has befallen him. With the help of her sister, Joanna, she delves into Gray’s disappearance, and soon finds herself in a web of magick and intrigue that threatens not just Gray, but the entire kingdom.

PRAISE FOR THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN
“A stunning story of magic, scholarship, and true love. Elegantly written, fast-paced and highly original…a remarkably assured debut.”
—Juliet Marillier, National Bestselling Author of the Sevenwaters series
“What begins as a fantastical story of loss and betrayal becomes one of intrigue, politics, and espionage. Debut novelist Sylvia Izzo Hunter renders both the setting and characters in vivid detail. The structured system of magick gives the fictional world weight, and Hunter manipulates the seemingly disparate plot elements to create tension that culminates in a satisfying conclusion.”
“The history of her world is not the usual stuff…inventive.”
—Marie Brennan, Author of The Memoirs of Lady Trent
