it was amazing

Simply superb.
This book, although written as a YA Steampunk book, is something all ages could enjoy. It's a beautifully written novel following the adventures of three children and a mysterious governess who arrives to look after the orphaned Miriam.
The prose reminded me of traditional adventure stories ( a la Enid Blyton, CS Lewis etc) with an injection of fantasy sci-fi. The characters are rich and well developed, notably the female characters.
It ends on a cliff hanger and I shall be getting the sequel soon. Highly recommended.
