This book has been sitting on my Kindle for years and I own copies of books #2 and #3 for some reason (either someone gave them to me or I thrifted them, I can no longer remember). Anyway, since I owned three books in this series, plus her flapper book, I felt like I ought to finally give Anna Godbersen the old college try.
Sadly, this book is not for me. The entire prologue consisted of monstrous info-dumps and it has a very deliberately ornate style that didn't work for me. It kind of reminds me of that book, MY LADY JANE, which I hated. So I think if you liked that book, you'll probably enjoy this one. Ditto Gail Carriger. The writing styles feel very similar.
1.5 out of 5 stars
