Once you read this you will probably agree with me that you need to read part one. It's a good sized book so it's something that you can settle down with and get immersed in. This is the first steampunk book that I've read and I like it as it gives a more dynamic twist on the fantasy genre. I love the plot and the characters, they drag you in to the book and hold your prisoner until you have reluctantly finish. This book has gore, horror, action, adventure, love and betrayal. it's a great read and I highly recommend it.
This really is a cracking yarn with some excellent characters and charactisation. There are plenty of twists and turns in the story, and right up to the end you're never really sure it's going to end up okay... I won't spoil the ending!
Beware - once you've started you'll want to continue till you're done, no matter how early you need to get up the next day!
Picked this up while halfway through the first one Katya still a strong character and the story continues to throw one twist after another Once you pick this book up you will not be able to put it down Its a cracking good read
