Aeryn's Comments    
Cover ArtA scholar of magics
by Stevermer, Caroline
This is actually a sequel to College of Magics, but comprehensible without having read the first, as the plot and most of the characters are unrelated. Takes place in an alternate nineteenth century where magic exists.   posted Jul 3, 2007 at 12:46PM

Cover ArtAngelica
by Shinn, Sharon
Here I would like to recommend any of Sharon Shinn's books. Angelica is one of my favorites, but all of her writing is beautiful.   posted Jul 3, 2007 at 12:44PM

Cover ArtA vision of light : a Margaret of Ashbury novel
by Riley, Judith Merkle.
This book is more of a historical fiction book than straight fantasy, but it does have supernatural elements in it. The author cleverly uses humor to break up what might otherwise be a depressing tale. Though somewhat hard to get into, this is the start of an excellent trilogy.   posted Jul 3, 2007 at 12:42PM

Cover ArtCrown duel
by Smith, Sherwood
One I reread several times and finally bought, Crown Duel is great fun. Originally, this book was published as two separate ones, which does show. The first part is more action, while the second part is something of a comedy/drama of politics and manners.   posted Jul 3, 2007 at 12:39PM

Cover ArtThe haunting of Alaizabel Cray
by Wooding, Chris, 1977-
A well-constructed setting and interesting characters are what sets this book apart. This is a darker fantasy than some of the others on this list.   posted Jul 3, 2007 at 12:37PM
