An underground factory, a terrifying laboratory, and the eerie whistle of the Night Watchman Express… Miriam has only her guardians' son for company, and she and Simon dislike each other from the start. But they must find a way to trust each other, or they will end up on the sinister Night Watchman Express. Full of danger, suspense, betrayal, and a hint of romance, this steampunk adventure is for readers of all ages.


Alright, I must first say how much I enjoyed this book.  I really liked so much about this book: the setting, the characters, the plot.  All of it made this book fantastic. I really enjoyed reading my first Steampunk book and can't wait to read more. 

But, with that being said there were a few things that I didn't enjoy.  Yes I know, its hard to find a book that there isn't at least one thing that I don't like.  So don't get me wrong when I say this, the book is fabulous.  The first thing I didn't like and will be taking off for is that the author does a lot of telling but not showing.  I like to be able to see a story in my head as I'm reading and it was really hard to do that with this one in places.  The other thing I didn't really like, but its not that bad is it felt like it dragged a bit, but not so much that I put the book down and forget about it. 

I really enjoyed all the Twists in this story though, I love a book that keeps me guessing whats actually going to happen next. I was very happy with the ending and will defiantly be reading the next book in the series.  I actually already have it on my 2013 reading list so look forward to that review soon as well. 

I would recommend this book to my friends that like darker stories.
