You say you want a revolution…?
Weather mage? Necromancer? Magic Freedom fighters? Politics? OH HELL YES! I’ll be honest. The only thing that could possibly go wrong with Parry’s new book is that I’m going in too excited. I need to reign it in just a bit. But it is sooooooooooooo hard to do! Especially when Sam slides into my twitter DM’s and just happens to ask if I’ve happen to have heard about this book and it is THIS book. Geeze has she built this castle in my head…

A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians
Release Date: June 23rd, 2020
A sweeping tale of revolution and wonder in a world not quite like our own, A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians is a genre-defying story of magic, war, and the struggle for freedom in the early modern world.
It is the Age of Enlightenment — of new and magical political movements, from the necromancer Robespierre calling for revolution in France to the weather mage Toussaint L’Ouverture leading the slaves of Haiti in their fight for freedom, to the bold new Prime Minister William Pitt weighing the legalization of magic amongst commoners in Britain and abolition throughout its colonies overseas.
But amidst all of the upheaval of the early modern world, there is an unknown force inciting all of human civilization into violent conflict. And it will require the combined efforts of revolutionaries, magicians, and abolitionists to unmask this hidden enemy before the whole world falls to darkness and chaos.
