This Goodreads website rocks my world. Thanks, Marielle.

Also, if anyone's ever read:

Jonathan Strange and Dr. Norell, by Susanna Clarke
The Illuminatus! Trilogy, by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson
Foucault's Pendulum, by Umberto Eco
The New York Trilogy, by Paul Auster

....and wants to give some feedback, it'd be appreciated. A friend of mine highly recommended these, so I'm just fishing for more opinion. Obviously, he's a bit of a conspiracy fiction fan.

I can pretty much only recommend sci-fi and fantasy from personal experience. So, for those who wonder "What would the Napoleonic wars have been like if everyone had had air units in the form of dragons?" try the Temeraire series from Naomi Novic, starting with "His Majesty's Dragon".
