The Alchemy of Stone - Ekaterina Sedia

wow. I already love Mattie, my new favorite mechanical girl, the emancipated alchemist automaton. this Steampunk tale also features characters called Soul-Smokers, and living, stone gargoyles--and I've only just started! I keep putting off the last book in a Fantasy trilogy, but even though I want to get that wrapped up so I can call it done, plus free myself up to new Fantasy and SF series, that twinge of regret I had over ignoring the Canavan book for a little while longer is now gone. so...this seemingly wonderful book starring an artificial girl who knows her potions, a nonfiction book, a couple of Crime & Mystery books, and then Canavan's trilogy wrapper-upper. even in the face of that, I'm already thinking about when I can get to the other Ekaterina Sedia book I have stashed--seeming like a wise investment.
