i gave this three stars because the world was so intriguing. I didn't give it more due to the writing. I don't think i could have handled another page of the michelle character or her continually annoying inner dialogue. by about half way through the book i found myself skimming any pages with her on it and it pretty much ruined the ambience of the book for me. I liked the main character, but it seemed that just about everyone was a walking cliche. Steampunk is a genre that drives me insane. As a genre it has SO much potential, but it seems unattainable. Very few books, in my humble opinion, have pulled it off...when they do though it is such a great genre. I really hope to see more and better as time goes on. as for this one, great world building, poor characters that ruined the atmosphere for me.
