Our Final Featured Book and Contest: GLAMOUR IN GLASS by Mary Robinette Kowal

Mary Robinette Kowal stunned readers with her charming first novel, SHADES OF MILK AND HONEY, a loving tribute to the works of Jane Austen in a world where magic is an everyday occurrence. This magic comes in the form of glamour, which allows talented users to form practically any illusion they can imagine. SHADES debuted to great acclaim and was a Nebula Award nominee for Best Novel in 2010. GLAMOUR IN GLASS continues the lives of the beloved main characters Jane and Vincent, with a much deeper vein of drama and intrigue.

In the tumultuous months after Napoleon abdicates his throne, Jane and Vincent go to Belgium for their honeymoon. While there, the deposed emperor escapes his exile in Elba, throwing the continent into turmoil. With no easy way back to England, Jane and Vincent’s concerns turn from enjoying their honeymoon…to escaping it.

Left with no outward salvation, Jane must persevere over her trying personal circumstances and use her glamour to rescue her husband from prison…and hopefully prevent her newly built marriage from getting stranded on the shoals of another country’s war.

GLAMOUR IN GLASS will release on April 10th.
