The Dark Unwinding
review 1: Weird but interesting. The mix of characters worked well to keep it engaging, although this book wasn't as fun/upbeat as the Her Own Devices series, it's a little more grounded in scientific possibilities. Still, it's also adventuresome and perhaps a bit gothic or melodramatic...while remaining fun. Again, I like characters who can be knocked down but keep fighting with determination, even Katherine who gets convenient help a bit too often. I was sometimes more interested in the secondary characters than the protagonist. But it's an enjoyable summer read and so far I'm having a lot fun with the steam punk genre. On the side, the portrayal of autism was mostly respectful and accurate regarding characteristics an autistic person might have, although a few times it didn't rin... moreg true...these were more issues with this being a fantasy adventure: the unrealistic bits are universal to the genre, not of an ignorance of autism specifically.
review 2: If you love YA and you love historical with a slightly steampunk flair, I think you will love this book. The author brings some very unusual and extremely cool elements into both the characters and the plot of this book, which make it intriguing and compelling. I stayed up extremely late last night reading because I just had to know what happened, and usually sleep compels me long before that eventuality. Can't wait for the next in the series! less

If you can make it through the first 100 pages, the end is quite satisfying.
