The Native Star by M.K. Hobson

Fascinating concept: “witch punk,” an alternate Victorian Era where magic is widespread, particularly in America (thanks, it is pointed out, to the First Amendment). I enjoyed the world more than the characters or the plot and was annoyed at some inconsistencies in the rules of the world and an unnecessary plot-device infusion of Steampunk technology.  Also features some “magic Indians,” though I suppose that is less annoying than it would normally be, given the setting.
