It was an okay short scifi steampunk story, not much too it, more like it would have set up for a larger story. But it was an interesting read with some action.

This short story was very interesting, albeit a little confusing at first. I look forward to the next story by this author. This short story is best for people brand new to steampunk or into science fiction. Some of the ideas in this story can be traced back to Star Trek and in some areas, Tron. However, it added a new spin on its relatively common storyline and managed to be captivating in its own sense.
