it was amazing

I read an advance reader copy of this book and really enjoyed it. I'm typically not a fan of Gaslamp Fantasy or Historical Fiction, but the well-rounded characters and interesting magic system in this book kept me hooked. Baldwin's writing style feels classically Victorian, which only adds to the authenticity of the protagonist's voice. Unlike many Victorian romances that I've read where the relationships seem contrived or cliche, the romance throughout this story is unique, organic, and complex. And I usually hate the way that male authors portray women, but Baldwin does an excellent job creating a relatable, realistic female protagonist. I can't wait to read the next installment!
