Has anyone else read this? If so, what did you think of it?

I quite enjoyed it, especially the alternate history elements, something that doesn't come up often enough in YA fiction. It's pretty gothic, but still a lot of fun. I felt that it was a pretty good steampunk sort of book, especially because of the afore-mentioned alternate history elements and the presence of airships.

There's a fair deal of Steampunk and Alternate History in YA fiction, I've been seeing. This, the Airborn novels, I've seen a few YA short stories with steampunk settings - it's kind of exciting.

Edit: Somehow, the His Dark Materials trilogy slipped my mind, when I think that mght have been was the first work with steampunk tendencies that I read. Phillip Pullman has also written  Clockwork, or, All Wound Up and the Sally Lockhart Victorian mystery novels, which are quite good.
