From the title and cover alone this book sounds promising. Even the blurb is promising, but all it manages to do is stumble about and be a weird mix of steampunk and not steampunk. Instead of complaining though I’ll break it all down for you.
A seemingly strong female Elle is put into a precarious situation with her father being kidnapped and the ‘quick’ delivery she was supposed to make. It all turns out to be a huge set up for some terrible things to take place.
The things I liked in this book. The characters were pretty unique and awesome. Lots of treachery and fun to be had by all. It was interesting seeing some of the characters I was suspicious of turn out to be evil. I really liked Marsh and how much he grew throughout the book. Elle seemed like a strong character, but later on she started to fall flat for me.
The things I didn’t care for was that the book literally took a turn around 50% of being slow and boring. I almost didn’t finish it, but I made myself stick it out. Which the ending was pretty good so I’m glad I did.
Overall I really can’t say a lot of good about this book I give it 2.5/5 stars. I was left just not as interested in the end. Don’t foresee myself picking up the sequel either. It’s definitely more on the trash end of things.
