Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I have read other of Gail and Larry's books, so I expected great things from this one and, boy, I was not disappointed! The characters are believable as are their actions in a time of mourning as they work to discover who killed Thomas Desmet. The blending of original characters with actual historical figures is well done and helps give the novel a firm foundation.
The technology is true and believable to the time period in both a historical and a what if? Readers of Gail and Larry's other works as well as lovers of steampunk will not be disappointed!

There was a lot of the supernatural in this story, but at the same time, a lot of the plot turned on cleaver inventions. I'm hoping to read more about these characters, but maybe with less world-shattering problems. A well told story with believable characters that you want to spend more time with. A brilliant twist on the past into what could have been, it has mad inventors, dashing hero's and heroines, mechanical marvels of course and magic to add some extra flavour to a tale of mystery, murder, intrigue and nightmares.

Audible Audiobook Verified Purchase. Excellent story and fantastic narration. This book relied too much on tropes and not enough on genuine description or explanation.

Especially missing are the layered descriptions from her Summoner books. It was enjoyable, but a bit of a disappointment compared to her earlier novels. A fun introduction to the genre. Can't wait for the next one! I had trouble getting interested in this book.http://develop.quickli.com/chico-busca-chica-en-guipuzcoa.php

There were plenty of gadgets, clashes, and chases, but it just seemed like a neverending supply of minions being thrown at the heroes with very little substance. Characters that come to fill a hole but don't really feel part of things. I wanted to like it and the cover is cool, but it just fell flat. See all 19 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
