I can't believe more people haven't read this book - it is wonderful! It is a perfect blend of Jane Austen homage and creative use of magic in fiction. If you are a fan of romance, fantasy, historical fiction or just a good romp, this book is perfect. There are four books in this series now, and they just get better.

This is an interesting book. It's well-written and well-plotted and the ending may surprise you. I was expecting parts of it (like the romantic pairings - it is, after all, a period romance at its roots) but not how it all played it out at the climax. It was nice to be surprised.

I also love the magic system that the author has invented here. It's subtle, as it has to be to keep history on track, but she's definitely planting the seeds for interesting uses of glamour in future books.

Why I liked it: great style, definitely an Austen contender. Original twist (enough with the zombies, werewolves and general undead) and a ripping good read.

"Synopsis" by ,

Shades of Milk and Honey is an intimate portrait of Jane Ellsworth, a woman ahead of her time in a world where the manipulation of glamour is considered an essential skill for a lady of quality. But despite the prevalence of magic in everyday life, other aspects of Dorchesters society are not that different: Jane and her sister Melodys lives still revolve around vying for the attentions of eligible men.

 

Jane resists this fate, and rightly so: while her skill with glamour is remarkable, it is her sister who is fair of face, and therefore wins the lions share of the attention. At the ripe old age of twenty-eight, Jane has resigned herself to being invisible forever. But when her familys honor is threatened, she finds that she must push her skills to the limit in order to set things right--and, in the process, accidentally wanders into a love story of her own.

 

This debut novel from an award-winning talent scratches a literary itch you never knew you had. Like wandering onto a secret picnic attended by Pride and Prejudice and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Shades of Milk and Honey is precisely the sort of tale we would expect from Jane Austen…if only she had been a fantasy writer.
