Seeing as how i already read a novel by Tamara i was expecting to like this novel, but i was a little worried, because all the reviews i've seen for it say "its SOOO much different from her other novel Death Whispers" and i really liked death whispers so i didn't know if it being different was a good or bad thing. Well all i have to say is WOW. WOW, what an amazing book. I don't think i've ever even read anything like this before. There are so many genre's mixed into this one amazing book. There are themes of ya, steam punk, dystopian, adventure, dynasty, and romance. I just loved it.

At first it was a tad confusing, because i didn't really understand the sphere's just yet, but by the end of the novel i was totally smitten by the story and completely understood everything. And personally I'm Team Matthew. I really don't know how to explain this novel but i found myself laughing, crying, and falling in love through out the story. Really REALLY good job Tamara =D

I was totally smitten by this novel. There aren't enough good things to say about it. It is very different and unlike anything i have ever read before. I will definitely be reading the sequel and bugging Tamara about it till it comes out =D
