Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A steampunkish romantic fantasy set in Ondinium, a city that beats to the ticking of a clockwork heart. Taya, a metal-winged courier, can travel freely across the city's sectors and mingle indiscriminately among its castes. A daring mid-air rescue leads to involvement with two scions of an upperclass family and entanglement in a web of terrorism, loyalty, murder, and secrets.

When Taya, a winged messenger, saves a Exalted woman and her child during a wireferry accident, she involves herself in a deadly tangle of political webbing. She soon becomes involved in crime-solving with a pair of Exalted brothers; Alister, the handsome, charming writer of engine programs, and Cristof, a socially awkward inventor who is an Outcaste from his family.

The world building in this book is excellent. I loved the level of detail on the social and political systems.

Pagliassotti writes well, with a graceful, quick, compelling voice that pairs well with her winged heroine. The pacing stumbled here and there when a change of tone or setting was needed, a common flaw for a first novel.

The characters fell short however. Many felt fairly typical and created to fill in plot points. Nonetheless, Pagliassotti's writing manages to keep you interested in what happens to the characters despite their lack of individuality.

I liked this book well enough to want more, and found out that this book is going to be re-published by EDGE with some rewrites and that the author is turning it into a trilogy. I'll have to pay attention and see when they come out. I was also interested to read that this was a NaNoWriMo novel.
