As I was reading this, I was caught by just how bleak and depressing the world of magic is. It carried over to me almost immediately and I wondered if I was falling into a black spell.
But no, I think it was mostly just the world of this imagination.
When we're talking about the unkindness of magi...

3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2017/09/26/...
A solid 3.5 star read. Kat Howard enchanted me with her debut Roses and Rot last year, so I was excited to check out An Unkindness of Magicians, her sophomore novel about a hidden world of magic and power. In this “Unseen...

This is a very solid and enjoyable modern magician story. I liked the focus on a single event in the Unseen World - the Turning - where magicians battle each other for supremacy and the right to lead the magical world. I loved Laurent, although he seemed pretty naive at times, particularly as the...

I very rarely say this but this would have been a 5 star read if it had been longer. I felt that some of the magic battle scenes could have been developed further and having such a large cast would have worked better across a longer book.
Despite all that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book; it was fa...

The nitty-gritty: A beautifully written and conceived tale of rival magicians, but with too many characters and ideas, it just seemed too big for a single volume.
I have to admit it was my husband who “got” the title of this book. He took one look at the cover and said, “An Unkindness of Magicians...
