Sooo I am between 3 and 4 stars for this book. On the one hand the cover is AMAZEBALLS, I love chicks who can burn things, and I love Victoriana/Historical Romance, I love grand conspiracy theories, yeah, there's a lot to like here. It felt like this was a first novel to me? So the characters were good but a bit shaky, and the world building was ALMOST there. Yeah, that's why it tipped over to 3 stars, even though there were plenty of 4 star qualities for sure.

I was irritated by one thing SUPER IRRITATED:

WTF she was an amazing swordsman when she was a kid, then it disappeared for 85% of the book, ONLY TO COME BACK AT THE END CONVENIENTLY?!?! I mean...yeah. That part irritated me.


I'm torn, because this was enjoyable. I feel like the author has the roots of something really good though, so I'm gonna pick up the next one for sure.

Tamahome Maybe Drew Barrymore can play her in the movie (she was Firestarter).
