For a book that contains crossdressing adventures in an AU steampunk WWI with genetically engineered living airships versus a bunch of AT-STs, this was surprisingly boring. There’s just so much stuff in there—maybe too much?—and I never felt emotionally engaged. It’s not bad or anything, and the illustrations are nice, but I just couldn’t bring myself to care. Oh well.

I very much enjoyed this. Although, I would further qualify it as organic steam punk. Combines adventure with history with gadgets.

As a BIG fan of the Uglies series, I had great expectations for this book. But I was thoroughly disappointed with the characters and the story. This might be great for a much younger audience, but I found it too dull and unimpressive.
