Well this was certainly different. I didn't mind the steampunk aspect of the book or even the secret societies. Since I don't normally read this genre it was all new to me and since I had nothing to compare it to - I didn't find it lacking. What I did find it, was confusing - it was hard to keep track of who was who and who was good and who was bad.
I liked Janette and Darius - but again there was some confusion. We never learned why Darius joined the order or who it was he left behind. Also there is the trust issue - which started to get old real fast. And his constant "warning" her away nonsense - seriously I wanted to slap Darius. Then we have Janette's mother - whose problem was apparently solved by the end of the book - but I have no idea how.
There is obliviously going to be more books in the series Bion and Sophia for sure and I am guessing Lykos & Decima. I will probably read them but, I really prefer her highlander novels.
I just finished and am really itching to read the next one.
Great characters, really well constructed world, and a fast paced story. Loved it.
You get the taste of Victorian England before the author flips it over, twists it around again, and creates an alternative history full of science, equality, and open-mindedness. I never lost my sense of suspended disbelief through the descriptions of the technology, the political structure, and the entire lore of the Illuminists.
This book is a new favorite that I will re-read.
I enjoyed this book so much that I had to write a review, even though many of my previous reviews for other works have mysteriously disappeared.
