An extremely descriptive story, I actually enjoyed the world and the stuffy imperious Emma, but found the surrounding characters even more interesting and I hate to say this as I love this authors works I sometimes got lost (even though eloquently done)in the very detailed telling, lots of rewinding back.
There is so much going on that the development of the relationships between characters got lost in the telling with the exception of Emma and her Shield and these moments where very few and far between.
The antagonists plan was deliciously nefarious and clever, L.S's imagination regarding the mechs and the caste type system regarding what powers you have that is the job you do is what kept me reading. It's very difficult to come up with something that is new but it's done here.
The best bits are the fantastical monsters, plots and the pure imagination of the world.

I was confused by the narration of this book, as the two main characters (and their internal thoughts) all sounded the same. It was very hard to follow. Added to this was the poor plot. Basically, they go somewhere they shouldn't, they get into a magical fight where various descriptive phrases are repeated again and again, and then they go somewhere else they shouldn't, and have another fight.
