4 out of 5 stars. A dystopian blend between high and dark fantasy that needs a while to get its hooks into the reader.
3.5 out of 5 stars. A great Holmes novel with a really bad pacing problem. And way too much details.
I was engrossed by Astra’s evolution from a wild child into a strong, well-rounded adult – despite the often officious adults who tried to “rescue” her.
