really liked it

This book builds an excellent steampunk world. The writing is great and the sense of mystery is entrancing. The technologies are inspiring, the world a dark, dark place, especially if you fall foul of the steam barons. The author has taken inspiration from Sherlock Holmes and really made it work, weaving it wonderfully into this story - the result is enjoyable. Although it may be long I found it quite readable.

The characters have depth, with flaws all round but they grow and change.

A splendid steampunk tale infused with magic and darkness.
