Sorcery and Cecilia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot, Patricia C. Wrede & Caroline Stevermer

"Dearest Kate, It is dreadfully flat here since you have been gone, and it only makes it worse to imagine all the things I shall be missing."

Thus begins an enchanting fantasy story told in letters between two cousins, Kate and Cecilia. Many strange things are happening in London. Magical things. This was a great book, especially as I love Patricia Wrede's other books. And, the two authors wrote this as letters between each other, so they didn't really know where the book was going. They find out new developments as soon as their characters do. The two girls might fear for their lives- if they weren't having such fun! This is a wonderful lighthearted fantasy with a cute title too. And it also had a really whimsical and enjoyable writing style.

Read Sorcery and Cecilia:

  • if you've read and liked Wrede's Enchanted Forest chronicles
  • if you enjoy light fantasy. 
316 pages, 4.25 stars.
