The story felt very much like a re-imagined, magical, steampunk Sherlock Holmes tale. This was enjoyable because of those references and because I love Sherlock Holmes but in the end it was still just an average, typical Victorian set adventure story with a female action hero and a brainy man duo.

Bah. I like other books by this author (under other names) but I just could not get into this! The old fashioned formal writing style alone was super annoying to try and make sense of.

Steam punk is NOT my thing. I tried because I love this author (under all pen names) but this book could not catch my interest.

While the story was fun, this book felt like the second in a series, not the first--there were a lot of times that things were not very well explained and I found myself guessing about what the author meant.

I would have liked more details about the differences between our "real" world and the author's alternate world. Unfortunately the lack of explanation made a lot of the imaginative things jarring in the storyline.

I'm hoping a second book in the series will explain a lot more.

Gripping, exciting read. Loved the Holmes tribute in the character of Archibald Clare, very cleverly written. Can't wait until the next book!!
