This book has several of my favorite elements, romance, steampunk, fae folk and a tad bit of the Bible thrown in. And it works! Great writing. Hoping this is only the first in a series. Though it ended in a good place it is left open for so much more. I enjoyed it. Great for teens and up. Not corny or cheesy in it’s use of the Bible. Just in simple terms in simple language as the beliefs of the people during the times. Great job. I give the book 5 stars.
I thouroughly enjoyed the Mortal Instruments series, so I went on to read the Infernal Devices. I have to say, I liked the prequels even more. I think it was because of the steampunk element and the time in which the books take place. Very well written. The flawed characters are endearing. I hated for the story to end. I give the book, and all three in the series 5 stars.
