If you've seen Disney's The Great Mouse Detective, this is it from only the hero's perspective.

Still an enjoyable book. I just wish it was a bit deeper.

Wow. A great finish to this trilogy. And like it is with all good books, I want MORE!

This was just as good as the first book in the series, if not better. Xandy is finding her place in the world and Kate Locke does NOT shy away from her monster. At all.....

This was one of those books where I kept nervously looking to see how far along I was because I didn't want it to end. I can't wait for the next one.

I have not been a fan of steampunk OR Victorian fantasy, but I guess I've never read it done right. It was a background to the story--not the story. I highly recommend this to any fan of Urban Fantasy.… (mer)

Update: I loved this book. I liked the direction that the author took with the character, but I can't really say why without some major, major spoilers, but those of you who like a good story won't be disappointed. One thing that I did enjoy is that the main character was surrounded by her 'people'. In a lot(most?) of UF the main character is so solitary they may as well have grown up in a test tube--despite years of life, there is no 'life' around them. Not here, Xandra's is full of siblings, mentors, long-term acquaintances, etc. It is as full and messy as real life and I appreciated that aspect.

If you are looking for PNR or the detailed love scene, I'm not sure this is the book for you. There is a love interest, but that is not the end game to the story, and while Xandra has a healthy respect for sex, it no more rules her story than it does her mind.

This is a solid UF more along the lines of Kate Daniels than Cat & Bones. I am not sure that calling it UF is correct, it is more of an alternate, steampunky version of the world we live in and I'm not sure if there is an official name for it; it just feels like a UF to me.

Big pluses for me were that despite the fact that this is the 1st in (hopefully a nice long) series, there is no cliffhanger. Nice. This is a self-contained story and my what a good one it is.
Oh my goodness. Reading the 1st 4 chapters (for free on Kindle) and pre-ordered at 39% in. Hopefully they are long chapters because this is GOOD. New take on vamps and other supes. The steampunk elements work well in a Great Britain setting.

I hope the writing and plot live up to the sample. If so, heLLO new favorite author!
