I read this on the recommendation of a friend and didn't read the description in advance, so it took me a while to figure out exactly what era I was reading about. It's an interesting take on an alternate history with magic and I really enjoyed the story, though it was more brutal in places than I expected.

Mostly inspired by silver age comics. Written magic is basically real magic, not single power that can be depleted and of variable power and controlability.
