Format: Paperback
Comes From Words is an amazingly well-written fantasy about the magical power of words and stories and the colorful characters who save that magic despite interference from powerful political Orders that want to ration and control all sources of power. The story has it all: intrigue, romance, rich language, and a tightly woven plot. The story will hold the interest of all age levels. Justine Macauley is a new writer worth watching!

The story moves slowly and gives you time to fall in love with nearly every central character. A strange and delightful combination of steam punk adventure, magical fantasy, writing about writing, and awkward Victorian era social events.

Comes from Words is well written and has a really interesting mix of magic and steam technology. The story has a strong female lead and lots of great personalities. It feels a bit like teen fiction, but that's not a problem for me. I'd definitely recommend it for people who are looking for a light read in the steampunk genre.
