''In addition to being the perfect genre, the cover is stunning...There is plenty of commonality between this story and the original to be recognizable, and yet Allen transformed it into her own stunning piece...Steampunk novels can be so fun as the reader sees what modern gadgets and technologies authors choose to include in their stories; the things Allen incorporated really added to the intrigue and excitement of the book. There is mystery, action, and suspense that will have the reader on the edge of their seat. Truly not enough can be said about this novel to describe how fantastic it is.'' [five out of five stars] --Compass Book Ratings
''Delivers a unique take on a classic fairy tale...in a steampunk version of Victorian England. Wonderful novel filled with romance, action and adventure.

Readers will eagerly await the next novel in what promises to be an excellent series.'' --BookPage
