An interesting read and my first foray into steampunk alternate history fantasy! It's a short read that at times feels like it had more potential to be more. To be longer. That it's a bigger story told too quickly. And yet a part of me is so wholly satisfied with wanting more than feeling that something overstayed it's welcome.
There's tight, pulpy action sequences, interesting characters and culture, an emphasis on imperialism and colonialism and the importance of our stories to us as people.
It's a strong read, and I recommend it. Especially considering the low low price point.
