You guys, if you're not reading Frances Hardinge, you really need to
. She is amazing--one of the most vivid & imaginative writers out there. The Lost Conspiracy is my favorite of her books, but I loved A Face Like Glass with its weird underground world. If there's a very slight reservation I have, it's that the end seemed like it came out of the blue--I wished it had been set up a little better. But that doesn't matter, because I loved it anyway and FRANCES HARDINGE.
