Holy shit.

How am I supposed to write a (spoiler-free) review of that much awesome, that much emotion, that much originality?

Fuck, I love this book. I'm pre-ordering another copy for my sister and dad to read because HOLY SHIT.

I may need to reread this again. Right now. It's that good.

And yes, I cried. Twice.

And I also got goosebumps. The good kind. Wow wow wow.


Review, with actual thought instead of pure fangirling, to come in August.

Obviously, I have a capslockian-level of excitement going on here.

This. Is. Awesome.

From worldbuilding (so detailed! So unique!) to characters (Yukiko and Kasumi are my favorites) to steampunkery (atmos-suits that function as jetpacks!), this is just made of win. I love love love it so far." 2 comments

Jay Kristoff YOUR TEARS, THEY ARE AS WINE TO ME.

(Really glad you liked it Jessie :D )


Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews) Then I predict you'll be drunk daily once this baby officially hits shelves ;)


message 3: by Sasha (new)

Sasha Sounds like I need to find a way to get this one.


Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews) Yes! This is one of my top 5 reads so far this year. The beginning is very typical fantasy - lots of setp and world exposition but it is so so good!
