Great story...confusing narration
I actually read this when it first came out, but I've listened to as many Katie MacAlister books as Audible has to offer, so I thought I'd give this one a listen too. The story is great and I can't wait for the second book; however, the narration for this book could have been better. Both narrators do a great job, but they should have picked one to do the entire book. Instead, they let Mr. Davis narrate the story from the main male character's point of view and Ms. Amato narrate the story from the main female character's point of view. Since they both interact with the other characters, you hear different voices and dialects for the same character depending on who's telling the story at the moment. It definitely detracts from the story, but it would have been much worse if the narrators hadn't been as talented as they are.

Good idea, but not her best work...
The idea for the book was interesting, but the plot and characters seemed rushed and underdeveloped. The narration was bland and not expressive. I really enjoy Ms. MacAlister's work in general. Her characters are usually funny and very likable. Jack was annoying. The "Steampunk" tone became chauvinistic rather than fun.
