Two young ladies contend with the Royal College of Wizards in Regency London: First in the series filled with "magical twists and turns" (San Diego Union-Tribune).

Since they were children, cousins Kate and Cecelia have been inseparable. But in 1817, as they approach adulthood, their families force them to spend a summer apart. As Cecelia fights boredom in her small country town, Kate visits London to mingle with the brightest lights of English society.

At the initiation of a powerful magician into the Royal College of Wizards, Kate finds herself alone with a mysterious witch who offers her a sip from a chocolate pot. When Kate refuses the drink, the chocolate burns through her dress and the witch disappears. It seems that strange forces are convening to destroy a beloved wizard, and only Kate and Cecelia can stop the plot. But for two girls who have to contend with the pressures of choosing dresses and beaux for their debuts, deadly magic is only one of their concerns.

This ebook features illustrated biographies of Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the authors' personal collections.

    Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell af Susanna Clarke (fyrefly98, ThatArtGirl)
    fyrefly98: Both have the same "Jane-Austen-meets-Harry-Potter" vibe to them; "Jonathan Strange" is denser and more grown-up, while "Sorcery & Cecelia" is funnier and more of a romp.

    Kat, Incorrigible af Stephanie Burgis (keristars)
    keristars: These are somewhat similar - a Regency-era girl discovers that she has magic ability by accident and then gets into a bit of an adventure as a result. S&C is more of a mystery/romance/adventure while Kat is a do-gooder Emma type. In my biased opinion, the Burgis book is far and away the better of the two, but if you liked one, you're likely to enjoy the other.… (mere)

    The Magicians and Mrs. Quent af Galen Beckett (Anonym bruger, MyriadBooks)
    MyriadBooks: For commonplace magic and properly brought-up young Englishwomen.
  11. 20
    Newt's Emerald af Garth Nix (rarm, Heather39)
    rarm: Sorcery and Cecelia was the first Regency-set fantasy I read, and still my favorite. Of the ones I've read since then, Newt's Emerald resembles it most, perhaps because they both draw on Heyer as much as Austen.
    Heather39: Another light young adult fantasy rendition of a Regency romance. Thoroughly delightful and fun.
  12. 42
    Arabella af Georgette Heyer (allisongryski)
    allisongryski: Let me preface this recommendation by acknowledging that Arabella does not have the fantasy element of Sorcery & Cecilia. However, I think many readers of S & C will enjoy this excellently written Regency story, following the impetuous, charming Arabella when she goes to London for the Season. There is some light romance, similar in tone to that in S & C, but the story is more focused on the characters and the humour in their interactions and misadventures.… (mere)

    Far Langben : en munter Fortælling for Pigebørn af Jean Webster (wordcauldron)
    wordcauldron: Same epistolary style and similarly entertaining
  14. 10
    Bewitching Season af Marissa Doyle (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: A similar fun historical fantasy feel. Bewitching Season has twins Persephone & Penelope Leland using their (secret) magical skills to protect the teenaged princess Victoria from a dastardly magical plot.

I need to re-read this at some point. I remember it as enjoyable even though the ending was a little rushed.

Reread August 2022: yup, quite enjoyable, with slightly strange pacing at times. ( )
  caedocyon | Feb 26, 2024 |
This book is absolute delightful. It's light, funny, and original. It consists of letters between the two protagonists, an idea that is very well carried out. ( )
  zjakkelien | Jan 2, 2024 |
Delightful. It's like reading Georgette Heyer but with magic. ( )
  mmcrawford | Dec 5, 2023 |
I discovered this book when I was a teenager and it remains a delightful comfort read for me. The epistolary style is fun, especially with two different authors. It can sort of muddy up the story a bit in places, but it won't stop me from coming back to this book again when I just need to curl up with some tea and a fun and charming book. ( )

What a lot of fun, just exactly what I needed. ( )

The authors wish to dedicate this book to Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Ellen Kushner, all of whom, in their several ways, inspired us to create it.
