First of all, I loved this book. I’m not a big fantasy/steampunk person, but the plot behind this book was amazing! To start off, I don’t usually like prologues, but the one here beautifully set up the world in the book by showing the day of “the Great Storm,” when Espers, people with super powers, were created.
In the world created by Egan Brass, there are a handful of good Espers who train at the Institute and set out to stop the bad. Now, there’s a new storm coming because the bad Espers aren’t just getting out of hand, they’re joining up to do so! Right away, chapter one starts with action, and I just didn’t want to stop reading from there. The characters are witty and humorous, Nathan is my personal favorite, and I felt their characterization was really well done.
The array of different powers by the Espers was also very well-written. Perfect score on my radar!
