My second foray into the genre of teen fiction and steampunk is not quite as fulfilling as Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan. While there are some neat, pop culture inspired ideas here (i.e. A hunchback ala Notre Dame who can change his appearance ala Lon Chaney), my biggest problem is than none of these cool ideas are delved into in very much depth. Honestly, this was a book that I wanted to be much more detailed and, honestly, longer. So, really the fact that it is a teen book is what the biggest problem is, so that's kind of disappointing. Still, if your looking for something simple to kill some time with, you could do worse.
