bookshelves: fantasy
Recommended for: fans of regency novels

One part Jane Austen, one part Charlotte Bronte, one part Dickens. Throw in a soupcon of Lovecraft, a dash of fantasy, and a sprinkle of gender weirdness. This debut novel has some serious flaws, especially as to pacing, but the charm of the characters and the novelty of setting make it worth reading if one finds 19th-century literature entertaining. Just don't try to hard to make it all make sense.
