I must admit I wasn't sure where the story was going for the first 100 pages. It has a city on the Antarctic, a private investigator, a local gang lord, robots and androids. The timeline was all off, too. But then, I haven't read a lot of steampunk, or any, so maybe all of this is par for the course.

Anyway, I ended up thoroughly enjoying this unusual novel. This is the second book I've read by Cassandra Rose Clarke and one thing she has done in both books that I've read is to spend a lot of time on relationships between her characters. They really like each other, or they really hate each other, and in either instance Ms. Clarke provides the reasons for the hate or like. I think this has been my favorite part of both her novels that I've read.

That being said, she doesn't skimp on the plot, either. It's fun to follow, without being so convoluted that it makes no sense. All in all, this was a book I really liked and I expect I will read another book by this writer.

An odd (and not entirely successful) blend of noir, steampunk, and alternate history.
