Alternative history with good intrigue and characters that makes you want to read more. The setting is vividly detailed, and there is so much to take in. One thing that I truly enjoyed was the gradual evolution of the main character as her reality is constantly being altered, and how she reacts to these changes. Overall it was quite enjoyable and I look forward to seeing where the story takes us next.
This story had so much potential. The set up was wonderful but it fell short on plot development and world building. Both of these issues could have been addressed if the story was longer. The steampunk world and political relations could have been better explained since this time period is supposed to resemble that of before the Great War. More historical background and integration of the steampunk elements would have made the story more substantial.
I was disappointed with the hero of of the story as well. Obviously Rosalind is supposed to be a strong willed, feminist female out of place in this era but the book was too short to show off all of her supposed potential. Rosalind has the answers to the mystery/conspiracy handed to her when it would have been more appropriate for her to figure them out on her own or with aid from her allies. She is the intelligent spunky protagonist after all.
