One chapter preview of Shades of Milk and Honey


Thanks to the tip from Aidan at A Dribble of Ink, that Mary Robinette Kowal has the first chapter of her new book, Shades of Milk and Honey up on her website.

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?)
