I couldn't put this book down and am sad that it is over. I am sad for two reasons: I enjoyed the milieu, and I hated final act. I don't know where the author was in his career in this book, but he overstepped himself toward that end, and the story frayed a bit. That doesn't mean that I am unhappy with the final disposition of the charaters, I think that fit the steam punkishness well; It was just not as well done as the rest. It is a bit of distopia, scifi, fantasy, steampunk, and political commentary rolled into one, and it worked well. I hope to discover there are more in the same universe.
