|Marvelously inventive young adult series that takes place in a world where the Stuarts never lost the throne in Britain. Full of Hanoverian plots against the Crown and dark doings in a Dickensian mode, these books are wonderful. American readers don't have to worry - it isn't necessary to know British history to enjoy these, although you'll get more of the jokes if you do. Aiken has also written a great many short stories that are well worth tracking down.|
