Very good read. Not the usual supernatural creatures, original and very creative. LOTS to absorb. Great characters and great writing.

It’s about witches, warlocks and a few other imaginative creatures, but don’t be fooled because it doesn’t follow the same paths many other supernatural books do by way of vampires and werewolves. I enjoyed the hints of real characters intertwined with steam punk elements. I will be reading the second installment when it’s ready.

This book really surprised me. It is an interesting blend of history and fantasy in a way that I haven't read before. The world and the characters are well thought out, as is the plot. Every action has a reason for happening. It's not really a romance, that's more just a part of the background to add to the book. I couldn't put it down when I was reading it and it's really good. It leaves questions to be answered in a sequel, but it finishes the plot line in this book which is a nice change from other series. It's a great read and I think others can enjoy it just as much.

This was an unique read! It's like a western with steam punk elements in it! The characters are very real. The romance isn't too obvious, and perhaps a little rushed, but the couple is cute. If you like unique supernatural books that don't fit the usual mold, this book is for you!
