    " This book was fluff, complete brain candy but it was fun and had an interesting story. "

    " This book had some interesting potential but it fell terribly short. The romance was silly and heavy handed. The author couldn't seem to go more than two or three sentences before reminding the reader that the two main characters were hot for each other. The humor was passable. The sex was at times steamy but came at woefully inappropriate times in the narrative. If you're trying desperately to free your sister from a prison in an alternate universe, I don't believe even the most fabulous cleavage is going to distract you. Likewise I doubt two well-trained intelligent characters who have sneaked into the royal palace via a secret entrance only to find the king otherwise engaged, would be unable to put their mutual desire aside long enough to avoid being caught. Granted it moves the story where the writer wants it to go but does a terrible disservice to her characters. I also found it difficult to believe that a crew who had only just been assigned to fly with a new captain would be so willing to give up their entire lives to follow her and her crazy new boyfriend without proper character development to back it up. In fact there is very little to know character growth other than the central romance emerging. The twist at the end was too obvious and seemed obviously pulled out of thin air, not too mention it being WAY too coincidental. The author for some reason makes a very big deal out of the mysterious behavior of the character, Mr. Llama and then never addresses him. She was very successful at making me want to know more about him and then left me hanging with nothing other than some mildly amusing and too frequent moments where he appears or disappears to the consternation of Captain Pye. All in all it had a few interesting and enjoyable moments but too few and far between. I finished the book but I wouldn't recommend it, especially for true fans of steampunk. "

    " A good solid steampunk romance. The sex scenes were well done as usual and the character of Octavia was spot on. I didn't like the hero as much as I do in her other stories. I didn't dislike him either but he doesn't compare as well to Drake or Gabriel. Still a solid single novel by MacAlister. "
