Macs's Backs Sci Fi Book Club discusses An Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard.

"In New York City, magic controls everything. But the power of magic is fading. No one knows what is happening, except for Sydney--a new, rare magician with incredible power that has been unmatched in decades, and she may be the only person who is able to stop the darkness that is weakening the magic. But Sydney doesn't want to help the system --she wants to destroy it. Sydney comes from the House of Shadows, which controls the magic with the help of sacrifices from magicians"--

"Strong characters and a captivating revenge plot make this a fun, absorbing read for those who like their magic, and their magicians, dark and twisty."--Kirkus Reviews

"A remarkable writer." --Neil Gaiman, bestselling author of American Gods
