it was ok
Read from November 26 to December 15, 2012

The concept of blending fairies and steampunk was very intriguing to me, thus the reason why I wanted the ARC. I admire the author's world building skills. She has created an alternate universe where light and shadow, technology and magic, are divided and balanced. She's obviously done her homework to mix this alternate world with historical fact and mythology, which makes the world rich. As far as characters, I loved the absinthe fairy, Louisa the Nightwalker, Rosamund the old crone and Professor Chance. Their dialogue, description and the scenes with Rosamund and Louisa specifically were well done.
