I really enjoyed the previous two books in this series and was seriously disappointed by this one. It felt a bit like filler with very little happening in terms of character or relationship development and the main plot wasn't particularly suspenseful or complex. The characters often had the same conversation several times over the course of the novel and everyone was perpetually being interrupted, which wore thin after a while. Also, Jasper (who was the primary focus of the last novel) was largely ignored for the entirety of this one and was largely written out of the book. The book was basically a bit of a mess with my already established fondness for the world and characters being the only thing pulling me through. While I will pick up the next book in the series (which I assume there will be based on how this book ended), if it's the same quality as this book, that will be it for me and the Steampunk Chronicles.

I just read this book, I've been waiting for it since last November, and it was awesome I can't wait for the next one!
