This is one of those rather peculiar books that I feel I ought to adore, and actually only mildly like--distressingly much of Elizabeth Bear is like that for me, where it just never quite makes the jump into deep passion. Abigail Irene is a fabulous character, and Sebastian and Jack are at least unconventional, and the world-building is comprehensive and well done, and I just never quite manage to break through into love for the book. I like it well enough to have read it, and re-read it in preparation for the sequel, and I just...don't quite love it.
