Our heroine is a construct, made to follow the orders of her creator. But when she escapes that control, things get interesting.
This is book one of the series, so definitely the right place to start.
This story offers an interesting blend of science and magic, with fantastic creatures and technology existing side by side, but I don't really think of it as urban fantasy, more SF meet fantasy, if that makes any sense. In any case, the story is well written and generally easy to read, although some of our character's backstory is a bit disturbing. Speaking of which, the characters are well developed, with detailed backgrounds that help make them real. But at the same time, there are many questions left unanswered which kept me reading hoping to figure out more. That was partially rewarded and yet I will also want to read the next book hoping to find out even more. Overall, the story was quite intense and engaging, keeping me interested and looking for more.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout for review purposes
