I preface this review in that I got this book from the publisher via Netgalley. Thank you to 47North for providing me with a copy of this tale for my Kindle. That being said, this is an honest review.
I did like this book. It fell into the realm of just “okay” for me. I so wanted to like it more. I wanted to roll around in the steampunk dystopia end of the world that I felt like I was promised. But sadly, I finished this still feeling like there was something missing. It left me feeling hungry for so much more. I do have the second book, Romulus Buckle and the Engines of War, and I am hoping that I will get the answers I want so I am fat and happy with satisfaction. Get ready Romulus Buckle, as we are going to be spending some more quality time together. Please don't disappoint me.
Until next time.
Remember to always be yourself. Unless you can be a pirate...then always be a pirate....
