Kate Elliot is an excellent author. She has a strong command of the language and portrays her world clearly and with much detail. Though well written, it isn't entirely adult-oriented. Cat is twenty, and there isn't any graphic violence or sexuality or anything inappropriate for a young reader. She builds an interesting alternative world, at the cusp of total industrialization (there are airships of sorts, but rifles are rare). The plot itself is intricate and woven carefully, but it wasn't perfect. It follows a pretty basic storyline. The world is original, and the characters are relatively her own. Cat, the protagonist, is young and fiery, but by the end I was wishing she would just chill out and admit she was in love with the love interest! Some reviewers (from amazon) complained about the love interest's arrogance and abraisiveness. I have to say I was more irritated by the way Elliott described it than anything else. In every sentence concerning him, she would include "arrogant" in it. For example, "his lips curled into that arrogant smile" or "and his face changed to the arrogant mask I was used to". She might describe other parts of his appearance, but that "arrogant" is in that description somewhere! His words and behavior were more than enough to inform us that he was arrogant, but he DOES have redeeming qualities, and I, at least, felt much sympathy for him. He cooled down toward the end, and Cat didn't, which annoyed me slightly, but I lay my hope in the second book! The thing I really liked the most was that the ending was HIGHLY satisfying. It wraps it all up and only hints to what may come later (there are a few questions left, but the pressing ones were answered by the last page). Recommended :)
