It works well as a Sherlock Holmes pastiche or as a steampunk novel. The steampunk elements are all there: strong female - Mycroft is his sister; robot or mechanical man or parts thereof - Watson has a mechanical arm, rather than a limp; steam transportation - hot air balloons and a motorized cycle; and an adventure - trying to recover Britain's plans for rebuilding the Nautilus.

Everyone loves a Sherlock Holmes story- even though we have read many different styles. It was great how Jules Vernes Nautilus was woven into the story. A little short but it was sweet. ( )

Cool, a female Mycroft! But is that really an appropriate name for a lady? And the real Mycroft is a lazy Mycroft, one who does not go around town for work. That's what he/she needs Sherlock for.

Cool, a mechanical arm for Watson! But equipped with a Russian rocket-launcher? A bit over-the-top, perhaps?

I couldn't really appreciate the steampunk factor - if anything, some of the elements felt forced. Steampunk Holmes didn't really work for me, and halfway through, I had to drag myself to finish it. I hope the steampunk is better expressed in the graphic novel adaptation. ( )
