I really want to like the book. It's got airship, steampunk and mad scientist, so what not to like?

The setting is nice, and everything looks promising for about 100 pages before we get inside the wall, where we have to follow the two protagonists' adventure.

Sadly, the characterization falls flat. I don't really care about either Briar or Zek at all. The minor characters got potential (The Princess, Lucy, the airship crews) but then fade to the background.

It's not a bad book. The writing is nice and clear but...it just didn't "shake" my imagination.
