Review by: Keith Seiffert on Nov. 07, 2011 :
A fantastic glimpse into an exciting new world. I love the blending of fantasy & steampunk. Magic & Science. It really left me wanting more, I hope the authors continue on with this setting.

Review by: Channel 37 Publications on June 20, 2011 :
This is a fun, fast read. Don't let the page count fool you; the vivid descriptions and deft characterization give this story a satisfying heft. The climactic events unfold in the best tradition of classic adventure tales. The authors mix authentic locales and historical figures into the story, which is a nice touch. And from what I hear, there are more tales to come -- this is a promising start to a great little series!

Review by: snowbeasttamer on April 21, 2011 :
I liked this story a lot, although the brevity surprised me. The exposition or world-building was probably long compared to the overall length of the story, but with the action involved before the main battle, it was enjoyable. I don't read a lot of steampunk tales, so the mix of real place names technological worries, and fantastical elements was a little disconcerting to me. However, the flow of the story and the different views presented really helped hold it together for me. In the end, I was looking forward to reading more stories from this world.

This is also my first Smashwords purchase, and I love having the multiple format options.
