Kali accepted Cedar's offer not only because it would get her the money she so desperately wanted, but because her ex boyfriend had let out a secret that had all kinds of people looking to rob/kidnap/kill her. She possessed some of her father's alchemical masterpiece flash gold. A magical substance used to power some of her creations it had properties making it unique and extremely valuable. When Sebastian, her ex, shows up in her life again to try to sweet talk her into working for him a whole new set of problems appears.
One of the major reasons that I pick up every book that Lindsay writes are her characters. They way they interact with real personality and humor makes all of her books fantastic reads. This book reveals a bit more of the past of both Cedar and Kali as well as explores their relationship a little more in depth. The mechanical creations used both by and against Kali in the novel show a great level of creativity and it can really keep a reader on their toes never knowing what they can expect. If you have not read Flash Gold (or the Emperor's Edge series) go pick up the first book in the series and you will be hooked.
