If you can get past the 100 or so pages of not a damn thing.
After all of that nothing, it gets interesting.
This was my first steampunk book, and I'm not really disappointed.
The imagery is gorgeous. The details that I actually read were beautiful. I absolutely felt like I was there. Never just on the outfield looking in. I was on home base taking everything as it came. (okay, first time I've used baseball terms to describe a book).
It was good. Not great. I may read the next, I may not.
