really liked it

I enjoyed the preceeding 2 books a great deal and ditto for this one however it did seem that Mr Hunt had written a larger 3rd volume and was asked to cut it down to size by the rather disconnected jumping from scenario to scenario towards the end. I find it hard to believe that a writer who conjures excellent scenes and links them to each other brilliantly would suddenly slip into almost precis mode and abruptly stop using well crafted prose to smoothly guide the storyline onwards in favour of a jerky popping from one set of characters to another for any other reason than being to told to shorten the book. I may be wrong but it did spoil the end somewhat for me. Nevertheless I'd recommend the series highly to anyone who likes steampunk.
