FANTASTIC STEAMPUNK ALT. HISTORY! - THIS is an enthralling and intriguing new spin into a world that I found incredible! It was like seeing the Wild, Wild, West Meeting Enola Holmes and I couldn't put it down! This is a really great book and I can't wait to see what is coming next. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed shows like Shadow and Bone, The Nevers, or the Irregulars! –Scribbled Dreams and Enchanting Things

Okay hear me out. This is NOT my normal kinda book. But with that being said, I really did enjoy this. It really made me think about how times could have been and what could have happened. Some things in here just made me heated. But really worth the read. 4⭐
