My Review

Rating: 4 Wine Glasses

My foray into the steampunk genre is turning out to be fantastic. I loved the first novella in this series and I was so happy when this one lived up to my expectations. In fact it completely exceeded them. The mix of steam-powered technology, science, fashion and all the mystery shrouding the Knights Templar made one hell of a combination.

Annie Seaton continues to surprise me with her writing prowess in this genre. I loved the settings she used in this book, taking me from Vienna to The Alps, to Scotland and moving me through time. The way she describes each of the settings had me feeling like I was there in the moment as it happened and not once did I get the sense of “something’s not quite right.”

The characters were fresh and fascinating, for a minute there I wasn’t completely sure whether I could trust Dougal and his manservant, but he won me over in the end. This book once again featured loads of steam-powered thingamajigs and time-travel. I was creeped out by the automaton people, but it added intrigue to the storyline. I would have loved to find out more about the moonflower, but even without extra information it still felt completed.

I can’t wait to read more of this series and even though the wait will be long, with so many of Annie Seaton’s awesome works coming out this year, I know it will be worth the wait.
