on April 03, 2012 :
I enjoyed this book. It had some very interesting ideas about the place of magic in a technological (steam-age but not steampunk) world. It's also a story of obsession and redemption with good character development.
The writing style reminds me a little of, perhaps, Jane Austen and took some getting use to but I never felt like putting the book down. It is clever, interesting and its world is one I would love to explore further.
