    A must read

    This books has everything, adventure, humour, romance, inclusion... I read it in a day and it filled my heart with joy. Do yourself a favour and read it from cover to cover.

    Abso-bloody-lutely awesome

    A queer story that's easy to relate to, that deals with sexism, racism, privilege, and is wonderfully developed in a historically-accurate 1790 Europe. Rich vocabulary and witty dialogue accompanied by full-fledged characters and a mostly straightforward plot line that never got boring. Moderately paced and a surprisingly quick read for the number of pages.

    Perfection

    I enjoyed this book entirely too much, I'll admit. There is something bucolically sweet and tragically hilarious about the whole affair, which is simply captivating. This unfortunately lead to the temporary disablement of my hands through my desire to keep this book firmly in a suitable position, the tragic loss of several hours of potential sleep, and it would take all together too long to detail just how many bruises I acquired while actively trying to train my eyes not to blink while simultaneously reading this book and doing my daily chores. Has this book scarred me with its roguish charm? Yes. Would I do it all again? Oh look... Chapter One.

    Delightful

    Loved it! Funny and serious in equal measure, fast-paced and romantic in the best way. All three main characters are delightful and have real issues (the author doesn't shy away from the period's prejudices), as well as believable conflicts with one another. Left me desperately wanting a sequel.

    Fun adventure

    I almost feel like this is A Room with a View meets... Pirates of the Caribbean? European Vacation? It’s a fun, adventurous read, and there isn’t much wrong with it other than the writing style being different than what I’m used to. I would say it’s on the mature end of the YA reading scale...
