Synopsis

The fantasy novel you've always wished Jane Austen had written

Shades of Milk and Honey is exactly what we could expect from Jane Austen if she had been a fantasy writer: Pride and Prejudice meets Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. It is an intimate portrait of a woman, Jane, and her quest for love in a world where the manipulation of glamour is considered an essential skill for a lady of quality.

Jane and her sister Melody vie for the attentions of eligible men, and while Jane's skill with glamour is remarkable, it is her sister who is fair of face. When Jane realizes that one of Melody's suitors is set on taking advantage of her sister for the sake of her dowry, she pushes her skills to the limit of what her body can withstand in order to set things right-and, in the process, accidentally wanders into a love story of her own.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

One of the things I dislike is when fantasy is wedded to the epic or the s&s models, and that's not a problem here. The story should be satisfying to any fan of Jane Austen who also has the sensibility of a fantasy fan. Yes, the magic is explained more overtly than in some stories, but in a way that suits the conceit. Though I had Pride and Prejudice as a mental model, my understanding of it led me to expect the heroine to fall for a different man. The surprise when she didn't was delightful.
