20. Shades of Milk and Honey, Mary Robinette Kowal


Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] mordicai! Fantastic recommendation. This is YA set in an alternative Regency setting where, without being precious about it, people can manipulate glamour to produce fantastic optical and sound illusions. There is love and conflict and oh, I don't want to say too much because I liked it and I want you to go read it unspoiled. I'll just quote the Powells.com review, which aptly notes, "Like wandering onto a secret picnic attended by Pride and Prejudice and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell." It's awesome even if you're not a big Austen fan (I'm certainly not), and you should check out the author's super awesome period-appropriate spellcheck wizardry which makes the text itself a delight. First in a series! Highly recommended.
