Review: The Unnaturalists By: Tiffany Trent

The Unnaturalists (The Unnaturalists, #1)The Unnaturalists by Tiffany Trent
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

You can see the inspiration of The Golden Compass within the pages of this book. The myths, the magical dust, the unique creatures - it's all here.
Vespa Nyx is hoping to follow in her father's footsteps in studying the Unnatural in the New London. Science and Order rules, or so the appearance of it, with Saints such as Tesla and Bacon, the old order seems washed away.
Hal Binon (aka Bayne) is off to uncover what is a conspiarcy that has lead him to the museum, and Syrus (a tinker) seems to hold a key.
It is not until the three gather that all is uncovered. Enter the world of witches, architects, tinkers, elements, and mythical creatures - it will be a good journey.
The book has twists and turns that one can enjoy, it can at times also seem disjointed - as if you missed a few pages, but you didn't. I wanted to like the reading process more than I did, but the storyline might be the thing that keeps me liking the book.
