‘A firework of a fantasy novel: vibrant, explosive, deliciously dangerous and impossibly fun. A must-read debut’ Tasha Suri, author of The Jasmine Throne

Siyon Velo might be acknowledged as the Alchemist. He may have even stabilized the planes and stopped Bezim from ever shaking into the sea again. But that doesn’t mean he has any idea what’s he doing-and it won’t be long before everyone knows it.

Then mythical creatures once confined to operas and myths are spotted around Bezim. A djinn invades one of Zagiri’s garden parties, and whispers of a naga slithering through the Flower District are all Anahid hears at the card table.

Magic is waking up in the Mundane. It’s up to Siyon to figure out a way to stop it, or everything he’s worked hard to save will come crashing down.

Notorious Sorcerer feels like a dream you don't want to wake from, with beautiful and broken people chasing elusive magic along a knife's edge in a beautiful and broken city. I devoured it and want more!
Megan Bannen, author of THE UNDERTAKING OF HART & MERCY
Notorious Sorcerer has everything I want in a fantasy novel: a picaresque hero to make my heart sing, a refreshingly new kind of magic, and a waggish sense of humour. If you like a healthy dollop of rollicking fun with your epic fantasy, this is the book for you.
