“Brand Gamblin has created a world that’s part Anthony Burgess, part Michael Moorecock, and all original. In this gritty imagining of a steamy dystopia, Brand weaves intrigue and romance, danger and wry wit into a commentary on contemporary society.” – Nathan Lowell, author of the Share Series.
“… this accessible coming of age saga was such a fun read, It felt a bit like a cross between Tom Brown’s Schooldays and Stephenson’s “The Diamond Age”.” – D.J. Havard
“Brand paints for us a fascinating portrait of a society where the class systems of nineteenth century Europe have reemerged with a vengeance and technology has progressed on a micro, rather than a macro, scale.” – Paulette Jaxton, Author of “The Empress Sword”.
“I wholeheartedly agree with the other 5 star reviews on this site. I’ve even purchased both paperback & ebook versions (excellent quality all the way around).” – Richard A. Green
