Fun steampunk story filled with twists and turns
The story weaves several plot lines together which play off each other and makes for a very enjoyable read/listen. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the Parasol Protectorate Series.
I really enjoy Emily Gray's ability to change accents and read for both female and male roles. She has an amazing talent for voices!
Enjoyed story, for the most part.
Predictable but clever
The world and the characters were exciting. I knew about how the love story would go after a brief introduction to the characters and I'd figured out how they'd solve a lot of it a bit before the climax, but I did enjoy seeing everything meshing together like clockwork. It was very satisfying.
As mentioned, the climax was extremely satisfying. Even though I had figured out what was likely to happen, seeing it come to fruition was good fun and there were some nice surprises.
Fans of Oscar Wilde will appreciate the reference to Bunburying.
Also, this is *not* a book for children. Although there was no explicit sex, there was a lot of it implied- and discussed. Lots. And quite a few swears, including a profane rabbit and generous use of the f-word. Just so you're aware.
