"A terrific novel ... hard to put down." (Herald Sun)
Riff is a very compelling, strong girl who has the vision and drive to change her world.
Very good narrator, even with female voices.
I read a terrible review of this book so I was undecided at first, but I enjoyed it a lot.It's your typical story about the finer classes abusing everyone else, but in a new setting. The story of the jaggernauts is very enthralling, but if you're looking for a lot of steampunk you will be dissapointed. Still, the story is very well written, characters are quite likable in spite of Cole who's a terribly undecided little brat, and the background history is quite refreshing.
