Fantastical mech monsters..
An extremely descriptive story, I actually enjoyed the world and the stuffy imperious Emma, but found the surrounding characters even more interesting and I hate to say this as I love this authors works I sometimes got lost (even though eloquently done)in the very detailed telling, lots of rewinding back.
There is so much going on that the development of the relationships between characters got lost in the telling with the exception of Emma and her Shield and these moments where very few and far between.
The antagonists plan was deliciously nefarious and clever, L.S's imagination regarding the mechs and the caste type system regarding what powers you have that is the job you do is what kept me reading. It's very difficult to come up with something that is new but it's done here.
The best bits are the fantastical monsters, plots and the pure imagination of the world.

The reader is pretty bad
I've read the print book so thought I'd enjoy the audio book. But the reader is dreadful. I spent so much time correcting the things she said that it threw me out of the story. It seems she's never heard some of the words she's reading spoken aloud, which is frankly terrifying. If I was going to get paid to read a book, I'd make damn sure I knew how to pronounce all the words in it.
