Darius Lawley's job is to eliminate would–be infiltrators, but even he may be no match for Janette's cunning and charm...

Love it! I'm a fan of Mary Wine's Highlander series, but when I saw the cover I found it appealing and fascinating! This is my first Steam Punk book and I think there will be more on my wish list. I was curious to know more of the "Illuminists". Her characters Janette and Darius are passionnate in this new world that Ms. Wine created for her readers. Janette's curiosity takes her inside the Illuminist's doors, she meets the most formidable man she's ever met. Darius. Love and intrigue in the search of the Deep Earth Crystals! I really had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what was coming next. Mary Wine is a high-quality writer that kept my interest throughout the book and gave me that feeling to read the next one to be released in May 2013 "A Captain can never be to Bold". Ms. Wine is one of my favorite authors and has written again a wonderfull story. I will definitely buy more books of hers.

Great Read! The book was exciting and the characters were enticing. I love the plot and how they introduce the characters for the next book in the story without taking away from the current story. I can't wait to read more.

This turned out to be 190 pages of thinly disguised "romance", if you define romance as a ridiculously high level of sexual response in a gently raised Victorian girl when faced with a predatory male. A shame that the author didn't do more with the story. I gather the real reason there were any hints of an actual science or competing ancient cultures, sadly, was just to provide an opportunity for more short novels full of sexually laden fluff.

As a reader of alternate history/steampunk and a fan of Mary Wine's historical romances, I had to read this book. I'm so glad I found it. At the end of the book I had to scratch my head because there were quite a few things that were not well explained, but....I really liked the story! The hero and heroine are made for each other...i.e. they debate a lot and then kiss and make up. There is lots of action and a good plot. The Illuminist Society vs. Helikeians will make for lots of drama in future books. This is pure escapism, no apologies, and I like it!

This is one of the worst novels I have read this year. The plot makes no sense, and the dialogue between the main characters is ridiculous. This was a total waste of time.
