"From the outstanding cover to the ending ripe for a sequel, Horwitz has much to be proud of with this title, and younger teens in particular will rip through its pages."
"Well-developed characters and a steampunk setting set the stage for this series starter, which is driven by mystery, action, and fairy dust. Incorporating science and danger, this magic-infused adventure carries broad appeal."
"Magical stagecraft, steampunk mechanisms, and glittering faerie dust intermesh in a debut middle-grade fantasy. This adventure overflows with imaginative conceits. Carmer makes for a charming hero--clever, compassionate, and exceedingly humble . . . the insidious creepy horror and galloping pace are effective, right up to the unexpectedly gruesome fate of the nefarious evildoers . . . undeniable potential."
"The main characters have distinct personalities and the plot is original . . . the way technology and magic must both be used to solve the problem will result in thoughtful reader reflection."
