The Philosopher's Flight: A Novel The Philosophers Series Book 1

Rarely does a novel begin with rollicking fierceness that grabs readers from its opening lines and doesn’t loosen its grip or lessen its hold all the way through… Miller’s writing is intoxicating and one doesn’t need to be a fantasy or sci-fi fan to adore this book. Kim curtis, associated press “the philosopher’s Flight by debut novelist Tom Miller has already set a high bar for any book vying to be the most entertaining novel of 2018.

Ian schwartz, bookpage a thrilling debut from er doctor turned novelist Tom Miller, The Philosopher’s Flight is an epic historical fantasy set in a World-War-I-era America where magic and science have blended into a single extraordinary art. At radcliffe, robert hones his skills and strives to win the respect of his classmates, a host of formidable, unruly women.

Robert falls hard for Danielle Hardin, a disillusioned young war hero turned political radical. Like his characters, tom miller casts a spell” Matthew Pearl, author of The Dante Club and The Last Bookaneer. Eighteen-year-old robert weekes is a practitioner of empirical philosophy—an arcane, female-dominated branch of science used to summon the wind, shape clouds of smoke, heal the injured, and even fly.

Though he dreams of fighting in the great war as the first male in the elite uS Sigilry Corps Rescue and Evacuation Service—a team of flying medics—Robert is resigned to mixing batches of philosophical chemicals and keeping the books for the family business in rural Montana, where his mother, a former soldier and vigilante, aids the locals.

In the tradition of lev grossman and Deborah Harkness, Tom Miller writes with unrivaled imagination, ambition, and humor.

In a western-cut suit and a rawhide tie, he is a sanitary engineer from Tulsa, Oklahoma, on a group tour. Stylish and highborn, she introduces Fred to a glamorous, yet eccentric, London scene that he never expected to encounter.

She doubts she could get a man’s attention if she waved a brightly colored object in front of him. This pulitzer prize–winning novel follows two American academics in London—a young man and a middle-aged woman—as they each fall into unexpected romances. He’s the very opposite of her type, but before Vinnie knows it, she’s spending more and more time with him.

Then, alone on a flight to london for a research trip, she sits next to a man she would never have viewed as a potential romantic partner. In her early fifties, vinnie Miner is the sort of woman no one ever notices, despite her career as an Ivy League professor.  .

But fred turner is also about to find consolation—in the arms of the most beautiful actress in England.
