With court intrigue, a tradition of English magic and the influence of Faerie, comparisons to Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell are inevitable, but despite the similarities in setting, Sorcerer to the Crown is a different sort of story. Where Strange & Norrell had setting in depth but not, perhaps, so much plot, Sorcerer to the Crown invests only as much as is necessary into its setting and instead crafts a more satisfying story. The characters are less complex and morally ambiguous, but they are a most cheering bunch, and you will rather find yourself invested in them. Events come to a most satisfactory conclusion, and it will be all but impossible to keep the grin off your face as events come to a head--and particularly in the denouement.
Engaging characters, intriguing plot, and beautiful language well suited to the audio format, and excellently read in this recording.

I liked the story and would recommend it to some of my friends, but I do think everything was thrown at this; racism, sexism, double dealing, politics, headstrong underdog....
The core story was good - the racist and sexist element didn't improve the story significantly, in my view.
