This book really drew me in, and I found myself staying up until 1:30 a.m. on several occasions because I just couldn't put it down. Ms. Bush has done an excellent job building a believable world, where the steampunk elements fit seamlessly into the narrative. The back stories for the Republic and Empire, as well as for the characters themselves, lend an air of realism to the story. This book was a really fun adventure from start to finish, and Ms. Bush let us see Chenda's development from a nai ...more

A fun ride! I thoroughly enjoyed this book, more than I expected. Steampunk, adventure, mystery and a bit of romance.

Fantastic! The characters are fleshed out enough that I began to care for them while the story kept things moving. Reminds me of The Golden Compass in a way but better.

Well... This one rates a resounding "Meh", I'm afraid. It started out well, but then everything went wrong. The writing is not great, the plot is a bit of a caricature, there's a lot of not-so(interesting stuff about "finding who you are" and everything (not that it's not an important topic in general, but I suppose it can always be done better than by having characters say "I need to figure out who I am" every other page), some rather horrendous stuff about the white protagonist going into a ca ...more

Too much romance and not enough substance. A good premise but seems a bit like a YA novel. A bit simplistic.

I have downloaded the book on both my PC and Laptop, but these are difficult to read propped up in my favorite chair. I hesitate to buy yet another gadget relying on the availability of electricity and batteries. I like the feel and smell of a book. I like reading in the bathtub, where I have occassionally dropped a book. I like my dogeared pages, underlining favorite passages, and lending

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

4 sta
I really liked this book. It was pure fun, nothing too serious, but also not annoying :) Only thing I wasn't so keen on was the mysticism, I prefer my steampunk more sciency, but all in all very enjoyable.

I believe I would have rated this higher if I were a fan of romance novels, and so would highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of that genre. It moves along at a good pace, and the writing is enjoyable. I'll be reading the sequel "The Gospel According to Verdu".

Even though it needs som general editing, the story kept me engaged, and I look forward to reading the second volume.

I really enjoyed this book! The end felt a bit rushed, though, and, while I know there's another book, there didn't seem to be any closure to this one.
