Mary Robinette Kowal stunned readers with her charming Nebula Award - nominated first novel, "Shades of Milk and Honey", a loving tribute to Jane Austen in a world where magic is an everyday occurrence. "Glamour" allows talented users to form any illusion they can imagine. After Napoleon abdicates, Jane and Vincent go to the Continent for their honeymoon. But the deposed emperor escapes his exile, throwing Europe into turmoil. When Vincent is captured as a British spy, Jane realizes that their honeymoon has been a ruse. Vincent has been capturing glamour folds in glass, sending vital information back to England. Left with no outward salvation, Jane must use the glamour at her disposal to rescue her husband from prison ...and - she hopes - prevent her newly built marriage from getting stranded on the shoals of another country's war.

A lovely, smart, strange novel with everything on earth (and elsewhere) to recommend it. Smoothly crafted with a flair for romance and mystery, this story is one part meticulous manners and one part wild magic--composing a whole that's utterly irresistible.--Cherie Priest on Shades of Milk and Honey
