The Iron Duke -  Meljean Brook Fantastic! I read a short story introducing this series in Burning Up, and found Brook's world quite intriguing. The first novel of this series is even better! The characters are fascinating and real. I'm sure other reviews will have more detail about the actual story, which I'll leave to them. I'll only add that this is a hard-to-put-down novel and I can't wait to read the next.
