From Goodreads: No one performs on the circus trapeze like 16-year-old Rémy Brunel. But Rémy also leads another life, prowling through the backstreets of Victorian London as a jewel thief. When she is forced to steal one of the world’s most valuable diamonds, she uncovers a world of treachery and fiendish plots.

Meanwhile, young detective Thaddeus Rec is determined to find the jewel and clear his name. Will Thaddeus manage to rescue the jewel? Or is it really Rémy that he needs to save?


My Thoughts: I liked the steampunk feel of this book. However, this didn’t feel so much like a Victorian London book. Yes, there are parts that described certain landmarks and other details that I’ve read over the years of what London was like during that era. I think that Remy and Thaddeus could have had a better romance if it were about them actually spending the time to talk. Overall, I think the action and steampunk elements were very well described, which made me keep reading. I’d recommend for lovers of steampunk, not for the historical aspects. A quick read which I enjoyed reading.
