Amunet was an original and gorgeously written story full of mysteries, secrets and twists, and it kept me guessing right up until the end.
Granted, it did take me some time getting used to: the unfamiliar world building (that had me very, very confused for a while until I figured out why a 19th century like London would have auto cabs and surveillance cameras), Amunet's aloof and haughty personality for the first half of the book, and not having a clue as to what was going on.
But, once I managed to let loose of my prejudices, the story and, to a great extent, Harkess' exceptional writing finally managed to suck me in.
One thing I never know if it's good or bad though, is ending up more intrigued by the secondary characters than by the leads, which is what happened here. Fox, Keene, Simmons, all those interesting, morally ambiguous characters you just never seem to be able to figure out.
So while not loving Amunet, I certainly enjoyed reading it, and I would recommend it to anyone who thinks the premise sounds appealing.
The girl has a residential guide inside her head who talks her into finding a way to save her mother from mysterious forces.
The boy 'about to become a young man' works with his father who is an investigator/inquisitor for the church and is determined to save Amunet from a witchhunt.
Amunet is an awesome genre mashup of fantasy, steampunk, and alternate history. Who would have imagined a London still following the Victorian style and notion while 'autocabs' ran through her streets but churches carry out witch hunts to find false mediums and subject them to the inquisition?
The author doesn't skimp on the details creating a setting from the known and loved real world locations and changing them into something fascinating and unique.
The characters are well crafted. Their personal flaws, eccentricities, and emotions are written with clarity.
Forever blushing Harry is sweet. Amunet does what she needs to survive and move forward with her mission.
Secondary characters help with the development of the plot.
The charming character who resides inside Amunet's head is my favorite from the book. Not willing to risk giving away major spoilers, I suggest you keep an eye on Morthenne, a fascinating creation of Mr. Robert Harkess.
POV switches are smooth.
Amunet is written with an easy pace. Action and backstory are blended well, keeping the reader engaged in the book.
The cover is pretty.
I like epics and grimdark so Amunet was a nice change for me.
I offer 4 bohostars to Amunet for being one hell of an adventure.
If you like fantasy, adventure, magic, and sci-fi feel in your book with an alternate setting in a known world, Amunet is going to blow your mind away.
Thank you Netgalley and Kristell-Ink for the ARC. This review is based on my opinion of the book and not influenced by any other natural or supernatural entity.
