Kirkus reviews Mainspring

Thanks to the good offices of a friend, I've now seen the Kirkus review of Mainspring Powell's | Amazon ]. No link yet, but I'll quote the conclusion here:

Despite some good elements-intriguing alternate history, solid characters, briskly moving plot-God created everything in Lake's meticulous scenario, and events are explicable only in terms of Him. Precious little room, then, for mystery, suspense, a sense of wonder or even suspension of disbelief.

Yeow. At least they spelled my name right.
