"...action abounds in this urban fantasy/steampunk adventure. We have past lives to explore, astral projections, incantations and magical battles, all from a first-person female protagonist's perspective. It's well-written, in a style reminding me somewhat of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. If you enjoyed that book or ones like it, you most certainly will enjoy this one."
"The narrative moves into different genres deftly ... exciting and exhilarating to read. I ... will implore all fantasy lovers to definitely read George Bachman's spellbinding novel."
