The Iron Duke seriously surprised me with it's awesomeness. I have never read a steampunk book before and I didn't think my squirrel like attention span could handle me imagining that kind of world, but of course I was wrong. The entire book from start to finish was amazing. It starts with our lovel...

My Rating: 4.0 Me and steampunk don't mix. I don't like it and it sure doesn't like me. I've never, ever, finished a single steampunk book without skimming it. When I heard of The Iron Duke through one of my friends, and that it was steampunk novel, my first thought was oh no, should I even bother t...

Fantastic story...loved the steampunk/nanobot bits, the description of society, etc. It took me a while to realize the ethnicity (generally speaking) of the Horde, etc. Can't wait for the next one!

While some of the characters took awhile to grow on me (and they all eventually did), the plot was very original and captivated me from the beginning.Detective Inspector Mina Wentworth hears that a body has...

4.5 stars... WOW!!! This is my first Steampunk book and i'm hooked. I enjoyed it all the Clockwork inventions, the coaches powered by steam, Victorian England, pirates, and most of all Rhy's. Mina is an inspector for the London police department who investigates a murder victim found at the Iron D...

Steampunk is my latest love in book genres. The costumes, the imagined smell of the grease and the engines – the oil dripping to the ground and then all the supernatural elements coming together to compose a story that is altogether awesome in its scope – I am, of course, talking about Cold Magic. T...

I must be on a roll with my reading, or maybe I'm just plumb lucky! But I'm not complaining, oh no... *grin*The Iron Duke of the title, Rhys Trahearn is a hero--the hero actually, who freed England from the Horde. I never quite got what the Horde were or where they came from, only that they controll...
