I'm not going to explain the contents of the book, as it is explained by B&B already. But I must say, if you haven't read this, you have seriously missed out. I found it refreshing, intelligent, and outrageously amusing. There is alot of subtle humor if you catch it. I found myself taking the book everywhere because everytime I tried to take a break, something else happened. Celeste was questioned by a gorgeously evil masked woman. Chang is surrounded by 4 soldiers, Svenson by 5 and a boat of corpses. And honestly, I haven't read this sort of poetic writing since The Alienist. Now it does get difficult to follow all the characters, I found myself one day scribbling a sort of tree of characters, just to make sense of it all. But it is all worth it. I must admit, I'm more of a fantasy sort of person, and the sexuality of this book just got me all atwitter. MY goodness!

Seldom has a story started out so promisingly and ground to such a disappointing halt under the weight of it's confusing plot. I enjoyed the three main characters as well as it's Victorian setting, but their character development and relationships were abandoned in the last half in service of it's bewildering cast of villains and it's overwrought narrative. There's a lot to like about this novel, but if you venture it, you'll need to keep notes on all the characters, there were just too many of them for me to keep straight.

    unstoppably perilous scenarios, but a fun read

    After the fiftieth or so time one of the heroes escaped from a certainly fatal encounter, I started to be weary of the drama of it all. But I must admit, I became fond of Temple, Chang and Svenson, and rooted for them anyway. The erotic tilt was not overwhelming and made the long read overall quite fun.

    What a thrill!

    I'm a reader who is typically put off by chapters running beyond 70 pages, but once I embarked on this bizarre journey with Miss Temple, Cardinal Change, and Svenson, this tome of a novel becomes almost impossible to put down. Three separate voices narrate, which forces the reader to piece together the events as they unfold, and heightens the intrigue surrounding the mysterious blue glass.
