Ren’s Review

I’ve never read Steam Punk fiction before so I was very excited about this novella. At first, I thought it was set during WWII until after the first couple of paragraphs. I, then, found it hard to follow as I was not too sure where it was going.

The setting is detailed enough to give you an idea where they are, but the plot and the characters were not as developed as they could have been. There were moments where I thought it would pick up but it seemed to center only on the major sex scene that was towards the end. Hopefully someone will ignore this review and judge it for themselves.

1 Tea Cup!
