Outstanding yet again! The Faraday Files is one of my most favorite series! The 1900s alternate steampunk London (Darrington City) and the diverse cast of characters found a place in my heart in Kate Mcintyre's debut, The Deathsniffer's Assistant, and I've been watching the characters struggle and c...

In my review of the first book in the series, The Deathsniffer's Assistant, I remarked on Olivia's general unpleasantness, but I'm glad to be able to say that during this book she thaws somewhat and becomes bearable.

I have a weakness for books with cool settings so when I read the preview for The Deathsniffer's Assistant and it said it had a 'unique pseudo-Edwardian setting' with floating castles, I knew I just had to read this book. I'm glad I did because it was fantastic! I was immediately drawn to the pseud...
