really liked it
Read from June 11 to 12, 2010

I bought this for my iPhone, as I was stuck at the hairdresser with only People magazine to read. It was a relatively inexpensive e-book.

It was a fast, enjoyable read, and a book that I would re-read. I may have to buy a physical copy of the book at some point, just so I can more easily flip through it.

It's a mystery combined with political intrigue combined with a fantasy and a bit of a coming-of-age story.

I'd say that it's a fantasy novel first, steampunk second, and a romance third. Certainly the romantic elements are important, but the level and detail of worldbuilding really place it in fantasy. It also has many elements of steampunk, but don't expect Victorian sensibilities or trappings--this world is not Earth.

But if you like romantic fantasy akin to Sharon Shinn's books, you'll like this.
