Summary
"An intriguing, not-so-different early 20th-century alternate world where magic works unobtrusively. . . . Strikingly set, pleasingly peopled, and cleverly plotted."--Kirkus Reviews starred review "The setting is delightful: a never-never 1908 very like our own, where little countries with names like Galazon, Aravis and Haydock coexist with the France, England and Spain we know, and magic is taught (along with posture and geography) at Greenlaw College off the coast of Normandy. Stevermer blends these elements deftly."--The Washington Post "Stevermer proves to have a gifted touch . . . To call a book an instant classic is a large hat for a novel to be forced to wear in its publishing infancy, but I don't doubt, all the same, that A College of Magics will endure as a favorite of discerning readers for a very long time indeed."
Summary
Wild West adventurer and sharpshooter Samuel Lambert worries that he will be a fish out of water when he comes to Glasscastle University to contribute his shooting skills to the top-secret Agincourt Project
