Total Hours to Read: Just over 3
--Average pages per minute: 1.52
Romance: There is a little something that starts to develop in a couple places. This is kind of a coming of age story, so I guess I get it. And nothing is really gross or graphic or anything (it IS is a kids book after all), so I was OK with it.
Language: I do not remember any language.
Violence: There are some descriptions of violence, sword fights, gun battles, a few gruesome deaths. What I liked, though, was that they actually showed the characters dealing with the things they had done and seen.
Thoughts: I liked it. A fun, quick read with a fascinating, steampunk style premise. I was actually almost more fascinated by the world than the main story line! My only real issue was that I think the author could have gone into way more detail and made the book longer and deeper, but I get that it is geared toward a younger age.
In the end: 4 out of 5 stars and I look forward to the next 3 books and the movie!
