I am sad to see this series end. This series grabbed my attention straight from the first book and to see this series end is pretty heartbreaking. Before breaking this book down I do have to say that this has to be one of my favorite steam punk series for YA that are out there.

Plot/Storyline: What I liked most about this series is how when one book left off the next book picked up where it left off at off (well almost). I feel that when authors do this, they are making sure that the reader is not missing a single bit of information that is added. The story is one that is sure to have action at almost every page packing its scenes full of emotion that will just grab you till the very end.

Characters: We are still on a adventure with Sarah and the final stand is coming to a close and she will have to make decisions that could have both a positive and negative effect on the society and her friends. We do see different side of characters that we probably thought might be there but wasn’t expecting to see them.   There is a character who surprises me a little in the end, to which makes the ending interesting.

Romance: I feel two sided about this whole little thing that happened in the story and I still haven’t decided which side I am leaning towards more. I don’t how to put this since I might start rambling nonsense that will probably only make sense to me so all I can is read the story to understand what I mean.

Overall this series was good. I hope with the way the book ended that this won’t be the last I see of this book. Andrew Mayer did an excellent job in creating a beautiful steam-punk fantasy that captured me and hopefully will do the same for you.

I give it 4 bites!

    This doesn’t sound like something I would read, but I’m glad you were able to enjoy it. Great review!

  2. Might wait for the second book to decide, but this one does sound like it has promise.
