However, it fell a little short for me. The idea of the story was definitely there and intriguing, but as I got reading, I felt the story start to get a little choppy, Jumping from here to there, or having conversations with characters that were unnecessary.
Then by the ending, I had all these things come up... that were never answered or explained. The ending literally felt like a well... I need to end this, so this is going to happen. It didn't leave me satisfied, left too many things unanswered, and was extremely rushed. There was easily about 50 pages more that could have been written to tie everything up nicely.
The idea was there, it was good, but I felt it wasn't executed as well as it could have been. So I'm giving it 3 🌟 🌟 🌟 Stars.
I quite enjoyed this book. It had its flaws - some odd scene transitions, the characters occasionally having a little too much good luck, Victor's sudden transition from struggling with identity to being head over heels in love, things not really being explained and ignored for the sake of the picturesque ending... But it was fairly easy to overlook the flaws for the most part. I would notice them, but enjoy the story enough to shrug and move on.
I liked both Lizzie and Victor as characters. Most of the other characters in the were kind of in the background most of the time, but they still managed to come off as people rather than props. It did occasionally make their choices a bit hard to understand, since they would be offscreen, then all of the sudden there doing something semi-important when they needed to be.
I will be keeping an eye out for more books from this author.
I loved Lizzie and her two friends and was fascinated by medical school of the past. The book starts with some of how challenging it was for our female medical student at that time, but then moves into sort of romance/mystery and leaves that largely behind. I do wish there was a bit more of that aspect to it.
Our romance was surprising. I'll just say that it definitely wasn't the romance I was expecting - and that's a good thing. Even though at times I had a little trouble wrapping my mind around it - and some of the future issues it might cause - I kind of dug it.
And our mystery was a fun one. Lot's of intrigue, danger, and nefarious deeds!
I got a kick out of this book. Dark, entertaining, and pure fun.
I'd happily read the author again in the future!
I liked the idea of the story more than the book itself. It's alternate history, a bit Steampunk and has some romance thrown in too. I was drawn in until about 3/4 of the way through when everything starts to resolve way too quickly, too neatly and without really explaining a lot of what I wanted to know. Some of the characters' motivations are never explained, the main supporting characters become just minor figures in the background despite being in the forefront the rest of the book, and there's a major plot twist that is just too convenient to be believable. Overall, this is a very quick, easy read with potential that didn't quite deliver.
