The writing style is very polished. As you're reading along, you can feel comfortable looking for the little hints and clues on what is going to happen next. The characters are likeable and not annoying. The main character specifically is my favorite because of her unusual talents.

I have had this book on my bookcase for 3 or 4 years and finally got around to reading it. It was really engaging and eventful. It was well written and you got the feel for that era in London. I definitely recommend this book.
