This is one of those reads where I wanted to try a new author in the fantasy realm and got it based on the artwork, summary, and the comments from other authors on the cover. “Steampunk Samurai” really caught my attention. This book was slow to start but that was perfectly acceptable as the author was building the characters.
Kristoff has a talent for painting vivid pictures with minimal words. The book is not overly long and the plot points don’t drag on and on. The interaction between the characters was fantastic and it is very easy to become attached to them. I felt invested in the characters well being and thoroughly enjoyed the story.
I’m a huge fan of anime but haven’t gotten the hang of reading manga without getting a pounding headache. This story read like a fantastic anime and I’m addicted! I can’t wait for the next installments!
If you are a fantasy reader this book is a MUST!! Enjoy:)
