A tad obvious
on 9 August 2014
This book was an okay story, but a tad obvious and predictable for me.
The post-steampunk and Lovecraftian elements I was expecting from the title were pretty sparse on the ground and felt a bit flat, with nothing to surprise me or generate any real sense of immersion in the world. Just adding the odd steampunk trope (blimps as transportation, for example) doesn't make for effective world-building IMHO.
The characters were okay but it felt a bit Mary-sue-ish (most of them are too passive by far, leaving our heroine the only one who gets off her keister). And the story doesn't end - it just stops in the middle of the action (an incredibly annoying habit that's all too common on self-published ebooks). I won't be buying the sequel.
