Ariah - B.R. Sanders I wouldn't recommend this book to just anyone.

This is the kind of book that you cup your hands around as though it was a fragile, beautiful butterfly. This is the kind of book that means such a lot to the right person that the thought of having to talk about it to someone who doesn't get it is too exhausting to contemplate.

I could go on and on about what a magical, beautiful experience reading this book was for me (I'm sitting in my office on four hours' sleep because I couldn't face the idea of going to sleep before I'd finished it) but instead I'm just going to point you at this review by Foz Meadows, which says everything you need to know about this book, in a better way than I ever could.
