This started very strong, it‘s sort of X-Men in the Victorian era. This first third was great, though there were a few moments some additional edits could help. Where the book lost me was when it jumped to a different timeline and set of characters and the pacing became a slog. I was so bored, so sadly I am DNFing this one at 50%. I think this could benefit from additional edits, there is no reason for this to be so long.
