Hott Synopsis

At best the children at Saint Aggie’s Home for Disabled Youth are despondent.
| |

At worst? Well, let’s just say that the truth lies in a deep dark pit below despondency.

These children are treated worse than dogs. Until… one comes along and changes the meaning of life for all who live at St Aggies.

Hott Review

This is a hard one to review. At the end, I can look back and say that I enjoyed it; but at the middle, I’d have said it was awful. It took me much longer than the book was long to get into the writing and the plot.

Overall, I’d say that if you enjoy this author, or his type if work, enjoy. However, if not you may want to skip it.

This was a freebie from BN & Amazon. Thanks to Books on the Knob for pointing it out to me. (Just click on the bookstore icon below the cover to be taken directly to the book’s page.)

Thanks to the reviews on ‘The Life and Lies of an Inanimate Flying Object’ I read this. Though I’d been looking for a Steampunk to round out my challenges and already owned this one I hadn’t taken the time to read it until her review list brought it to my attention. Thanks, Haley!

** Many of the books I review are Advance Review Copies. These books are loaned to me for my review. I am in no way compensated for my time nor am I asked to give anything but my honest review. If you have further questions, please, review my FTC Disclaimer on my homepage.
