Tea and Sympathetic Magic by Tansy Rayner Roberts

Clear rating
This novella packs some enjoyable characters into an intriguing world of absurd magic and manners. The romance is sweet and the backdrop of inequality and self-determination gives it solid grounding. A delight.

“It is perfectly okay to write garbage--as long as you edit brilliantly.”
C. J. Cherryh

Samuel Adams
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
Samuel Adams

Richard Siken
“We have not touched the stars,
nor are we forgiven, which brings us back
to the hero’s shoulders and the gentleness that comes,
not from the absence of violence, but despite
the abundance of it.”
Richard Siken, Crush
