By Singing Light

I didn’t find the quality in this one very high, to be honest. I think it’s mostly that I almost always find the idea of steampunk more interesting than the execution. And there’s a kind of same-ness to the genre, which makes me cling to the few I’ve found that I really like (Clockwork Heart and The Iron Thorn come to mind). [July 2011]
