I could not put this book down. Lady Claire is a treasure of a character. With spunk, brains, and a heart of gold, this gal is well worht the time invested in getting to know her and her merry band of rag-tag ladies and gentlemen.
I’ve read some Steampunk novels that try to hard to impress you with all the technical descriptions that they forget that stories shoudl be about people as well. Shelly Adina has given us the best of both. She made me want to know more about all the gadgets and such, but kept me rooting for each and every character as they made their next discovery or change.
With a lot of heart and interesting things to keep you reading, I hope that this series finds the succes I think it deserves. Well-written and intriguing, I only wish there had been a bit more of a resolution at the end of this story. i am on my way to buy the next one, but felt a litle let down when I realized I had reached the end.
Overall, a great read.
