by Katie Hayoz
Summary from GoodReads
Set in the muddy streets of 1850s steampunk Chicago, Immersed by Katie Hayoz is a dark yet romantic fantastical romp. It is a stand-alone novella, but the first in a series of adventures that follow Melusine on her quest to rid the world of monsters…and her struggle to come to terms with every monstrous facet of herself.
Thoughts on the Book
I loved the world Hayoz built. It's a steampunk Chicago filled with mythological creatures. I love the rivalry between Melusine and Levi, and the tension between them. I really enjoyed learning about Melusine's curse as well and the reason behind it. I want to know more about her family life!
My main issue with this book is that it was too short, some things felt kind of rushed or glossed over. If Hayoz had taken time to really draw out some of the stuff, especially between Melusine and Levi, it would have been so much better! Which is saying a lot since it was awesome as is.
I give this one a 9/10. I can't wait to read more from this world!
