I really enojyed this book. Set in roughly the same time period as Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series, only in the United States, Native Star is the tale of hedge-witch Emily Edwards and the deliciously named wizard Dreadnought Stanton. Emily accidentally winds up with a magic stone embedded in her hand and the story follows her as Stanton tries to take her to the wizard he thinks will best be able to get it out. Along the way they encounter Indians, killer raccoons, evil wizards, flying machines, and many other obstacles. Oh, and there's even a bit of a love triangle. Lots of fun!
