Praise for The Court of the Air:
‘An inventive, ambitious work, full of wonders and marvels’ Lisa Tuttle, The Times
‘The characters are convincing and colourful, but the real achievement is the setting, a hellish take on Victorian London … the depth and complexity of Hunt’s vision makes it compulsive reading for all ages’ Guardian
‘Wonderfully assured … Hunt knows what his audience like and gives it to them with a sardonic wit and carefully developed tension’ Time Out
‘Studded with invention’ Independent
‘Rich and colourful … keeps you engrossed … a confident, audacious novel’ SFX
‘Like a magpie, Stephen Hunt has plucked colourful events from history and politics and used them for inspiration … Hunts tells his full-blooded tale with lip-smacking relish, revealing a vivid, often gruesome imagination … ‘The Court of the Air’ brims with originality and, from the first, its chase-filled plot never lets up’ Starburst
‘The best book of 2007 … Think Joan Aiken for grown-ups, with echoes of Susanna Clarke … hugely enjoyable’ Historical Novels Review

If you want to be over-critical I suppose some of the prose doesn't read all that well, but these issues are few and far between.
I loved it.
