SeaKat’s CBR5 Review #10 The Twelfth Enchantment by David Liss

The Twelfth Enchantment“So you’ve got this Regency-era heroine, some kind of minor gentry – total Jane Austen, right? And, now here’s the hook: There’s a WHOLE magical world that she doesn’t even know about, but her magical powers are the key to saving all of England! It’s Pride and Prejudice meets Harry Potter!”

It sounds like a parody of a film pitch—take two vastly different concepts and mash them together, hoping to somehow come up with a winner. But in the case of The Twelfth Enchantment by David Liss, IT TOTALLY WORKS.

  1. I hate to say it, but Liss’s earlier books — Conspiracy of Paper, Coffee Trader, Whiskey Rebels, A Spectacle of Corruption, even the Devil’s Company–are so much better than this.
