    Amazing read!

    I haven't read a story like this before, and I can't wait to see her come out with a new story! An absolutely spellbinding thrill to read, that will keep you hanging on by fingernails for that final note to ring true. If you like steampunk, post-apocalyptic eorlds, or you just like a circus with a dark twist, this story is for you!

    Amazing, fantastic, unique

    Most original and compelling world I've read in quite some time. Almost impossible to categorize, but it is a universe I would like to return to.

    If you have any affinity for fantasy at all, you must read this one.
    Not just another post apocalyptic missive, the language at times is beautifully lyrical.
    The world is set up well and the characters will break your heart.
    Well worth your time. Received free copy for review.

    A disturbing place where humans take on metal bones, lungs, and wings. Full of both beauty and terror. Performers that never age, but that in and of itself is a horrible truth to face.
    Moving through a world gone wild, with war, and evil and those in the circus mechanique form a warped, twisted family, with the Boss in charge, never showing her soft side.
    Through it all...the wings...oh the wings. Beautiful, terrible wings that sing and shine and take over with their own brand of madness.
    Like a horrible wreck, you cannot look away. You have to read to the last line, the last battle, the last gasp. Who can ever forget the circus. This is not the circus of your childhood. This is a circus of your nightmares....everything looks bright and sparkly, at first. As you look closer, you notice the frayed edges, the strained looks, the awkward moments that whisper "run now, before it's too late". But it's already too late. You are hooked and must read to the very end. It's well worth the read.
