I have mixed feelings about this rather long, dark, and imaginative fantasy by first time author Huso. There is a lot to like here. This is a very dark fantasy, the characters are flawed and real, the plot is simple and time tested, and the magic is extremely cool. This is a sort of steam punk novel,where zeppelins, bizarre machinery, and state of the art science rules the world. Blood magic is the supernatural element that permeates the landscape of this story. The story is overly ambitious and as a result there are far too many loose threads that fray at the main plot. Too many questions left unanswered and a questionable ending bring the overall feel of this novel down a few notches. I am giving this book 3 stars because of it's highly imaginative magic and wonderful stempunk-esque setting. Huso is an author to watch but this one suffers a little from first time mistakes.
