I couldn't finish this book. I could barely start it. It's just a stupid rehash of every post feminist fantasy steampunk cliche I've ever seen. I gave it 70 pages and gave up.

I think a better medium for this story would be graphic novel, since it was the cover that sold me on the book. In a graphic novel, you'd have some nice art, a lot less pseudo-Victorian narrative to wade through, and you could finish it in twenty minutes. It's not worth a second more of anybody's life than that. I give it two stars for the cover.
