Childish story. Predictable storyline. Narrator too similar in presentation to her previous work.
Couldn't bear to finish.

Really interesting characters in a steam punk.novel.
Astonishing, to make steampunk space opera plausible!
Loved the narration, very skillful and perfectly suited to the story.

The ONLY audiobook I've ever skipped to the end to put myself out of my misery.
I was hoping for the wit of VI Warshawski and got stereotypes instead.

It ended too soon!

The Best Sci Fi Series in Audiotape

This was an eye-opener! The whole series is exquisitely crafted and sensitively narrated and so good I hope it wins many many awards. The ONLY writer to rival Ian M Banks.
It takes just a little while to engage with the story, but then you realise that you are in love with this strange but fascinating world with astonishing yet poignant tales.
Highly addictive, I bought the whole series.

I loved this. Short by my preferences, but interesting, textured and with a very satisfying ending.
