Great blending of regency with steampunk and fantasy. Cassandra Clare readers might enjoy this.

An interesting enough story, set in steampunk / Victorian era Scotland.
Aileana is a Faery killer. Think Buffy mixed with Twilight and you'll get the idea. I appreciated that she was more active than Bella, but she was also incredibly blood-thirsty - to the point that she was hard to identify with.
I did read this in two sittings, so I'd rate that in the book's favor.
Warning though, this is the first in a trilogy and the ending is a total cliff-hanger.

I loved this book and can't wait for the next one. It kind of reminded me of Julie Kagawa's The Iron Fey series (one of my favorites)!
