(I received this book free from the author in exchange for my honest review)
This was a rich book full of magic, wonder and luscious detail that had me captivated from the first chapter until the last.
The opening had me, when that little girl looked under her bed and scream, I actually jumped. Weird, but amazing. I've never had a jump scare while reading, that and, I'm still creeped out that there might be something under my bed.
The complexity of this story was truly something else. It has a bit of everything, I even like the villain. I know I shouldn't, but this chick has a anit-hero-ish sort of thing going on, and in truth I like her as a person. We could be friends...
I love the witty interaction between the characters, the steampunk elements; but most of all I loved how unpredictable and original the plot was. It was a fresh take on old tropes that made me fall more and more in love with this marvelous story.
I highly recommend this book, it's a perfect piece to steampunk fandom, as well a perfect intro for those that what to get into then genre.
I hope to see more of this world and characters.
