I’ve been really looking forward to reading this since I first read about it, because how could I not love a book inspired by Jane Austen but with the addition of magic (called glamour in the book) to the mix of womanly arts a girl is supposed to know? Well, if the first chapter is anything to go by, I’m now REALLY looking forward to its release. Kowal’s regency voice is spot-on but not stuffy, the magic system seems intriguingly realized, and the main character, Jane, is appealing and level-headed.
Shades of Milk and Honey is released August 3rd. Can’t wait!
(Also, how lovely is that cover?)
