Butler complicates and expands the steampunk world of her wildly inventive Lancaster's Luck series ... a complex and swift-moving adventure with plenty of arch humor, and a charming romance with two sharp-witted and intrepid gentlemen explorers. Romantic Times ... a beautifully written love story that is bursting with style and talent. This story is so good, so well done that adequate words are hard to find. Chez Shay Online Reviews ... just outstanding entertainment and a grand read! If you love suspense, mystery,romance, and a story full of intrigue and great world building, well, this is the one for you... the characterization is superb, the plots tight and deeply layered and the suspense off the charts. And the love and romance matches it all. Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words Reviews
...totally a 5 star read...only because they tell me that's all the stars I can give it, otherwise there'd be a hella' lot more of them up there at the top of this review. My Fiction Nook Reviews
