ACoM is a brilliant book and you should get it (another one set in the same
universe, Scholar of Magics, is coming out sometime this year or next), but
it feels quite different to SaC to me- less fluffy, maybe. Mairelon the
Magician (by Wrede alone) seems to me to be more similar to SaC, although
that could be because the setting is magical Regency England rather than
Middle Europe.
