"A rich, sprawling epic full of history and magic, Declaration is Jonathan Strange with international politics and vampires. I loved it."Alix E. Harrow

A sweeping tale of revolution and wonder in a world not quite like our own, A Radical Act of Free Magic is the conclusion to this genre-defying series of magic, war, and the struggle for freedom in the early modern world.

The Concord has been broken, and a war of magic engulfs the world.

In France, the brilliant tactician Napolon Bonaparte has risen to power, and under his command, the army of the dead has all but conquered Europe. Britain fights back, but Wilberforces own battle to bring about free magic and abolition has met a dead end in the face of an increasingly repressive government. In Saint-Domingue, Fina aids Toussaint Louverture as he navigates these opposing forces to liberate the country.

But there is another, even darker war being fought beneath the surface: the first vampire war in hundreds of years. The enemy blood magician who orchestrated Robespierres downfall is using the French Revolutionary Wars to bring about a return to dark magic. Across the world, only a few know of his existence, and the choices they make will shape the new age of magic.

Praise for The Shadow Histories:

"Magnificent...[turns] the part of history class you might have slept through into something new, exciting and deeply magical."BookPage

"A witty, riveting historical fantasy . . . Parry has a historians eye for period detail and weaves real figures from history--including Robespierre and Toussaint LOuverture--throughout her poetic tale of justice, liberation, and dark magic. This is a knockout." Publishers Weekly (starred review)
