This is a very well written steampunk story with a clever twist. I quickly fell in love with the heroin, who is strong, smart and resilient. The story is full of twists and turns that kept me glued to the book until I was done. It’s a real page turner with lots of action and excitement. It was no cliffhangers either. I would warmly recommend this book.
