Loved it! 😍

A thrilling ride in an engaging world full of magic, mystery, and evil in a beautiful cyberpunk atmosphere!

I've always thought that the cyberpunk genre has been an interesting part of science fiction, but for some reason, I haven't really committed to a cyberpunk novel before now. But when I first made the plunge into the cyberpunk world, I'm really glad that I did it with Dreadmyre.

The story is told by Finn, our protagonist, and I enjoyed getting to know him and his witty and sarcastic sense of humor. Even in the darkest and most action-packed parts of this book, I could always count on Finn to come up with a comment on the whole thing that would put a smile on my face.

Dreadmyre is an action-packed, dark, funny and mysterious novel that I just flew through. It's very fast-paced, but not so much that it runs away from you.

Mr. Raikes has made an interesting world come to life and with it a whole bunch of strange and likable characters that I would love to get to know even more. The steampunk atmosphere in the world that Finn suddenly finds himself is easy to picture with the way that the story is written, and I must say that I am more than a little intrigued!

The only negative thing I have to say about this book is that it was so short. There was so much to uncover, such an engaging world, and so many unique characters that I felt like I was slightly rushed through the story. I would have loved to be able to spend a little more time in this world to get even more invested in the characters.

That being said, I really enjoyed the first book in the Emberwall series, and I will definitely be picking up the next one when it comes out!
