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

Welcome to Bezim, where tribes of sword-slinging bravi race through the night, and where rich and idle alchemists make magic out of mixing the four planes of reality.

Siyon Velo, Dockside brat turned petty alchemist, scrapes a living hopping between the planes to harvest ingredients for the city's alchemists. But when Siyon accidentally commits and act of impossible magic, he's catapulted into the limelight - which is a bad place to be when the planes start lurching out of alignment, threatening to send the city into the sea.

It will take a miracle to save Bezim. Good thing Siyon has pulled off the impossible before. Now he has to master it.

A dazzling fantasy debut bursting with wild magic, chaotic sword-fighting street gangs, brazen flirting, malevolent harpies and one defiant alchemist.

“Alchemy, chaos, and a whole lot of wit”

I’m coming to this review straight from closing the book, which is unusual for me, and shows just how compelling Notorious Sorcerer really is. It’s a remarkable and ambitious debut, and the first in a new fantasy... More

“Interesting magic and queer romance”

I was so sure going in that I was going to love this one. It had interesting magic, a queer romance, a snooty love interest and a gutter rat MC. But then I started reading and the pace of everything just threw me.... More
