My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Such an incredible story! I’ve been meaning to read this for awhile and I finally snagged the audio book from the YA shelves at my library. The book is read by Alan Cumming, who does a great job with the voices and accents. The alternate history is really interesting, as it winds around real events and fiction. The idea of the Darwinist technology is pretty cool. Characters are very well done, well-rounded. I’m already listening to the second one, Behemoth, also read by Alan Cumming. It’s just as good as the first one! This is my first “Steampunk” experience. Loving it!
