Author: Pauline Creeden

Publication Date: September 16, 2014
What a fantastic story! Each episode is better than the last.
So much was revealed in this episode. We learn of the Wood Witch’s nasty habit and the truth behind Darius’ affliction. We are introduced to a new witch/alchemist, who has joined in the search for Darius, and we learn of Monroe’s revelation. Pauline packed so much into this episode, yet left some unanswered questions that should be revealed in Episode 4.
One of my favorite things about this series is the lesson at the beginning of each chapter. I’m embarrassed that it took me this long to realize the origins of these lessons, and how they relate to each chapter. Each one is beautifully written, like a mini poem.
I’ve already pre-ordered the omnibus for this 4-part Steampunk Fantasy set in an alternate universe. I can’t wait to read more of Raven’s story.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
