I just need to mention that the cover art, and book art inside are beautiful!
I really do love getting a novel that is standalone, or in a series, at least has a good solid ending for each book. This book proves that you can have a multi-part adventure that is well developed, well written, and fun all inside a single book. The ending is riveting, and perfect.
I was hooked after the first paragraph and loved every part of this book. Reading this book was such a wonderful experience I found myself reading it very slowly just so I could fully savor every moment. Finishing it was bitter-sweet.
What I really loved about this book is that it was descriptive and took time to develop the characters, but it was also paced very well so I constantly felt like I was in an action-packed steam punk adventure. To add to this, there was also a depth to the story and characters shown through the lessons they learned, and the growth they had. Creeden struck the perfect balance.
Resounding five stars! Highly recommend!
