This book was bizarre and absolutely terrifying. I'm giving it 5 stars because I've never read anything like it, and it was a compulsive read. I finished in one sitting. But DEFINITELY 10 at least. (I would not give this to MY 10 year old, though.)

Ressenya escrita per a Crítics Matiners de LibraryThing .
This is my first book by this author. I'm happy to say I think I will read more of his work.

This is full of adventure, history and a bit of mystery. The scenery and explorations of the Toronto Islands was an interesting plot point that makes the story work well.

The concepts in this are intriguing, and the adventure is fun at times.

The story does drag slightly in the middle, and I do have to say that this could have been shorter. Although this is marketed as a middle grade book, I don't think that description is accurate, since the main characters are 16. Gabriel's strange attachment to Rebecca is slightly odd, too.

I did really enjoy the indigenous representation in the story. It added more culture, another historical aspect and learning to the reading experience for me.

Reading this actually reminded me a tiny bit of the TV show Ghosts, with all the variations of ghosts of different time periods and locations throughout the story.

2.5 stars, but I'm not feeling generous enough to round up today. Pure action-adventure steampunk YA thing, very readable, very forgettable. Takes no stands, makes no enemies, but has a good time serving up slightly implausible action sequences.
