Why did I pick this book?
Well firstly I have heard several booktubers mentioning that they received ARCs for this book and yep that got into my head and I decided to check it out on Goodreads. The blurb seems pretty interesting and I’m into the Steampunk genre and decided to give it a shot. I have yet to read any of Andre Cremer’s books like the Nightshade series and I really hope I can get my hands on this as everyone seems pretty hyped about it. Can’t wait! Tell me what are your thoughts of this book and share with me your WOW in the comments below and I’ll see you in my next blog post.
