Review: Jane Steele

Jane Steele Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars
Reader, I loved this until the last third of the book.
A totally unique twist on the story of Bronte's, Jane Eyre, featuring Jane Steele, a murderous orphan/journalist/governess who solves a jewel heist and falls in love.
The writing was imaginary and rich -- to the point that I wish I'd had my own copy instead of a library copy, so I could underline passages.
But the "mystery" involving the Sikh wars and a gaggle of friends/soldiers/mercenaries and a young girl, was way to convoluted for my simple brain to make sense of it.
A totally unique book, but one that ended oddly.
