The cover art and the fantastic reviews on the book cover had me expecting more. At best, it's a reasonably entertaining read but not a page turner. I found the characters and plot could use some more depth, and the gothic steam-punk description/setting somehow "peculiarly" lacking (haha, I'm so funny...).

I really loved this book! Lena is sweet and selfless and her friends are great, I really can't explain much about it- but it's definitely worth the read- I read The Peculiars at the same time as reading the Infernal Devices series and I found them oddly similar, both are great reads though! You'll find yourself caught up in this tale of mystery, adventure, and a bit of light romance! :) Enjoy!

I just could not get into this story at all. The characters were not very interesting (especially the main character, I wish she had more of a personality) and I wasn't a huge fan of the writing style, so the plot (though semi-interesting) didn't hold my attention.
