I received an ARC from Netgalley with the option of a voluntary reviewI previously reviewed the first in the series Storm Glass here you bothered clicking the link you'll notice I really liked it I really liked this one too Why four stars instead of five you say conversation may not have happenedWell here goes The first in the series was uite uniue a steam punk Victorian world with a mysterious magic system and interesting characters It's still here but less uniue obviously My problem is with the first third or so of the book The time has jumped four years with nary a hint of what went on it time In fact hardly anything goes on in that first third at all I was struggling to maintain my interest Cettie and Sera had been roomies at Muirwood Abbey for four years with little but some hints at Cettie being awesome controlling the Mysteries while poor ol' Sera being a bit of a lame duckThenAfter dozing through 100 or so pages Wheeler ramps up the pace a lot One of the girls is attacked Sera's grandfather pops his clogs opening up a vacancy at Emperor one Sera is in the running for There are rumours of war with Kingfountain who seem to have improved their technology to an advanced state Throw in the standard politicking and social one upping along with Cettie's discovering a lot about her ghosts old flames showing up at inopportune moments and the rest of the book is a rip Wheeler has ramped up the stakes for everyone involved including the reader and I find it hard to believe that the majority of those who read book two will not be interested in reading book three There is some fine world building and storytelling going on here Give it 445
