This was the first book that I have won on goodreads! It was not my normal kind of book, rather one of the few that sort of interested me but I was much more eager to win many of the others. I need to think on it to write a proper review but, for now, I'll let you know that I think that Raven Dane is a pretty good writer.

I like fantasy books, but not so much about creatures from Hell. I like sci-fi a little, but she dabbles it in with vague and sweeping descriptions and doesn't get too technica

Cyrus Darian is one of those characters that you just have to love because he is so naughty. Dabbling with demons or seducing women and men left, right and centre he's a bad boy, but a very likeable bad boy with a coterie of friends that you can't help warming to.

I'm someone who loves the aesthetic of Steampunk but hadn't really got to grips with reading anything in the genre until this novel and it really is good.

Raven Dane is rather good at painting vivid pictures with words that draws me in a
