London, 1783. Orphan Cirrus Flux is being watched. Merciless villains are conniving to steal the world’s most divine power—the Breath of God—which they believe Cirrus has inherited. Now he faces a perilous journey through the dirty backstreets of the city as a sinister mesmerist, a tiny man with an all-seeing eye, and a skull-collecting scoundrel pursue him. Cirrus must escape them, but he’ll need to trust some unlikely allies if he hopes to thwart his foes—and survive a grand and terrifying showdown.

    " During the Age of Enlightenment, there is some fantasy, but most of it fits in to the ideas of science of the times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denelle | 5/30/2013

    " I ADORED this book. Riveting writing, fascinating plot, exciting adventures, and charming characters. The book on CD is wonderful, and the book itself is a treasure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 11/30/2012

    " Great historical setting and lots of great characters. Pacing is off. "

    " boring, interesting concept poorly developed 1 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 9/16/2011

    " I'm seeing a lot of poor reviews, but I really enjoyed this one. The story is not so much about "The Breath of God," but more about the young foundlings, so anyone expecting The Golden Compass is going to be baffled, but anyone just looking for an adventure ought to enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shane | 7/31/2011

    " I'll give this a "3" because the writing style was very good and the author did a great job at immersing the reader into 18th century London. However, the plot was lacking, as very, very little actually happens. Also, the whole "Breath of God", the main plot device, wasn't even explained. "

    " The Steampunk aesthetic of the story was very entertaining. "
