An interesting book with an interesting world that is slightly hard to get into but then becomes an interesting book as it goes on. Setting up Max Silverskin for his quest almost took too long but the pace gets better as he goes along his quest and then it stops.
There's probably a sequel, I don't know if I'm motivated enough to hunt it up. Not that this is a bad book, no, it's just that it wasn't all that special. The world is interesting, where families are associated with metals and some of the minor families have their names because they were marriages between specific houses. A brilliantly concieved world with a lot of interesting issues going on. Very steampunk lite but with a very mythic feel.
