In the beginning I didnt think I would like this but it became very interesting and the intregue was great.. I thought I knew who the villian was and then it would change directions...GOOD ALL THE WAY TO THE END.

A fantastically complicated mystery set in a richly detailed fantasy world. I especially love the steampunk elements of Wells' work, and her characters are realistic while still being exciting people. My one quibble is that her prose is sometimes a little difficult to get into, but her world building and plot twists more than make up for that.

You can rarely find such a likeable assortment of scoundrels, theives, and ner-do-wells. The subtlties of this Victorian-esque society are sometimes a trifle too sublte but in the end this reads like some sort of fantastic alternate history (you know, if sorcery were commonplace at court). I loved it!
