Review by: Kelley Marie on Nov. 19, 2011 :
This was a beautifully written story. It's a mystical, steampunk, Cinderella-type fairytale. Melba is a strong female lead who begins to take charge of her own destiny. The male lead, Turk, is a charming gentleman who strives to do the right thing. Their story has lots of twists and turns and is certainly not predictable, and we get to meet a lot of fascinating characters along the way.

I just finished this book and I'm still enjoying the happy buzz of the world Helen Scott Taylor created. It was a wonderful romantic adventure story--the kind you don't often get anymore. She is a rare talent and I'm going to recommend this to everyone I know, young and old.
