The third installment of Barnett’s lively Victorian pulp/steampunk adventure series…Barnett creates some provocative and genuinely dark moments, and an intriguing cliffhanger sets up his next book. Fans of pulp adventure and steampunk settings will enjoy this strong series. – Publishers Weekly
With a diverse cast of characters and delightfully despicable villains, I found Barnett’s writing to be honest, compelling and clever. I am completely invested in the Gideon Smith series. Mr. Barnett, you’ve made me a fan. – Pop Kernal
This is the third of David Barnett’s marvellous steampunk novels chronicling the real-life penny-dreadful adventures of Gideon Smith, Hero of the Empire…It all makes for a busy book, but one that’s as much fun as a ride on the brass dragon. – Toronto Star/Hamilton Spectator
