RT Book Reviews 2015 Reviewers Choice Award Winner for Best Steampunk RomanceMcMaster once again proves her remarkable gift for cleverly fusing a nonstop, action-driven story, a deliciously dark and atmospheric setting, and off-the-charts sensuality into one riveting read."-BooklistFifth in a thrilling steampunk paranormal romance series, Lady Aramina finally has the means to destroy her nemesis, Leo Barrons-the only man who troubles her heart and tempts her body.When her beloved father was assassinated, Lady Aramina swore revenge. The man responsible is well beyond her grasp, but his dangerously seductive heir, Leo Barrons, is fair game. When Mina obtains evidence proving that Leo is illegitimate, she has the means to destroy both the killer and his son, a man who troubles her heart and tempts her body.A woman of mystery, Mina's long driven Leo crazy with glimpses of a fiery passion that lurks beneath her icy veneer. He knows she's hiding something, and he's determined to unravel her layer by silken layer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fast paced & wildly imaginative McMaster writes in a polished yet fun & inviting style that really allows you to enter the story full force. She brings her work to life in the most unique of ways. The storyline kept me hooked with plot twists galore, yet never throwing anything at me out of left field. McMaster uses intrigue to her advantage in this intricately crafted tale, ratchetting up the suspense throughout. Her narrative and descriptive style brings this Steampunk world to life in a very vivid manner. The cast in this novel was well developed. They were the perfect individuals for this tale, making an enjoyable story even better. The interactions between the characters are exciting, tension filling the air until it is palpable. Chemistry & enmity vie for a place while the characters win your heart. Although these characters are ultimately introduced earlier in the series, it’s not strictly necessary to have read the entire series to enjoy their story here to the utmost. This fast paced, wildly imaginative tale will take you on a trip like no other. It’s a fantastic read for those looking for something out of the ordinary. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
