    A Good Read

    I enjoyed this book immensely. It is an intense, non-stop-action-packed, dark opium dream of a Steampunk adventure, with thrills, chills, and a breakneck pacing that leaves you gasping along with each of the three protagonists. The book switches at several times between the points of view of the three protagonists, but it works since the author stays with each character for roughly a third of the book, so it's more of a focused, 'And meanwhile, this is what was going on with this other character many miles away', than a nervous jumping back and forth. A nice addition to the genre.

    Exciting, fun, thought provoking

    This is an exciting and edge of the seat, intelligent story. The characters are well developed and thought out.

    Buy both volumes

    Be sure to buy both volumes if you want the paperbacks. The first one will leave you grasping for the second. Most defintely the best book(s) I've read in a long time. Complex, sexy, exciting and mysterious.

    Excellent

    Very strange. Very entertaining. It was different from anything I have ever read before. This book stands alone. Good work Mr. Dahlquist.

    Snuck up on me!

    I absolutely loved this book. I saw this book a few times before I actually bought it and was intrigued and confused by the title. I wasn't sure if I liked the jumping around between naratives at first, but as the story unfolds it's obvious why Dahlquist wrote it that way. I felt it was organically imaginative and creative, unlike the recycled storylines of many modern novels. The characters were well-developed and interesting. You have to have a decent imagination to even be interested in what this book has to offer. But, I doubt you'll be disappointed with what you find.
