This book was fantastic. I've already re-read it a handful of times. I love the character of Arden, even though she was so stubborn it drive me crazy at times. Ms. Cross writes extremely evocatively, there were times when my heart was in my throat as I waited for what would happen next. I love how Lucas came back into her life, and I loved how it wasn't like, "here he is, he's back, life is wonderful again" There was a period of transition and you saw clearly how both Arden and Lucas struggled with their new-again marriage. I adore steampunk and this didn't disappoint. I highly recommend this book to those looking for books like The Iron Duke.
