Thank you Mark, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

What do you get when you cross a thieving good guy and an Empire who is about to strike back? {yeah, I went there}. You get Sigmund Shaw and Britain in the late 1800’s. I’ll be honest, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when Mark approached me about reading his debut book. But once I dug in, I was pleasantly surprised.

This novel had so many kick ass elements. First, it was a period piece…2) Sherlock-y dudes with a love for gadgets? COUNT ME IN!!…c) there’s sneaky plot twists and fighting and dead guys and stuff. You can’t NOT like this story. Plus, there’s a sequel! And we all know how I love sequels.

Story aside, King’s writing is FANTASTIC (to be said like Nine). The first thing I said to myself was, “Self, this guy gives good prose.” The second thing I said to myself was, “Self, so what you kinda figured out what’s gonna happen…this guy gives good prose so keep on readin.” I’m glad Mark found me and asked me to read this, otherwise I would have missed out on Sigmund and his bamfness. I think you guys should give it a go… you’ll enjoy it!!

Hope you have a great Sunday Funday, Homies. Stay tuned for some upcoming October news!
