Powell primes an explosive narrative with brilliant cliffhangers. --The Guardian
More fun than a barrel of steampunk monkeys ... It's an over-the-top, verbally caffeinated adventure story with smart, nasty ideas and plenty of pulp. What makes it truly special is Ack-Ack, the action hero who can cut through any strategy session or infodump. --The Milwaukee Journal
Any book that makes me grin like a buffoon whenever I crack it open is a definite winner. Full of great characters, fast moving plot and lashings of first-rate action, I can t recommend this highly enough. --The Eloquent Page
