Rating: 3.5/5 stars
A decent foundational start to a steampunk epic fantasy and also a far departure from Blood Song.
Anthony Ryan is responsible for one of my favorite books of all time, Blood Song. It's saying something that I feel like his new series, although different in tone, can stand along side it.

I received a signed ARC of The Waking Fire the day before my birthday. Best birthday gift ever? I'll begin by saying that The Waking Fire is nothing like the Blood Song. If you are looking for a Badass and heroic, flaming-sword-holding and ever-winning protagonist, you are searching in the wrong place.
