Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson.
Alif the Unseen is a terrific book! Imagine a mixture of The Magicians by Lev Grossman, Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, and The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman, set in an unnamed Middle Eastern country on the brink of the Arab Spring. Clever hackers fight for freedom against the oppression of the all-powerful State; true love struggles to survive treachery and betrayal.
Fantasy geeks, rejoice!
