This is a pretty snappy steampunk series, ladies and gents. It's just so fluid, and the tech is not in the face obvious. It's a well integrated part of everyone's life. I also love how organically it co-exists with magic in this world.


Wendel and Ardis is a couple we met in Shadows of Asphodel. Thrown together by chance, an assassin necromancer and a mercenary fugitive manage to thwart powerful enemies in a conspiracy plot. Now they are on the run from Wendel's masters. Not only that, but Prussia and Russia are on the brink of war, and Ardis, who works for archmages of Vienna is called back to serve them in Project Lazarus.



There are four main characters in this book, Konstantin, Theodore, Wendel and Ardis, and while the action mostly concentrates on the last two, these four work well together. Just find the strip-poker scene! *grinning* Wendel and Ardis's relationship also progresses. I really enjoyed their interactions. Both are practical to boot, flippant and very honest with each other. They also know how to work on their insecurities and how to admit they were wrong. This feels like a solid couple.


Expect a breezy read full of airship chases, clockwork dragons, steampunkish robots, Tesla, assassins and some princes thrown in just to spice things up. Easy, entertaining and fun, recommended for the fans of Melanie Karsak and Melanie Card. ( )

Another solid dieselpunk story with sexy bits and violent deaths rolled into a tidy ball of paranormal romance. This volume had the usual suspects (necromancer, mercenary, archmage and automatons) along with some new characters including sentient clockwork creatures, vampires, a smart new pet raven and one of the greatest scientists ever...Nikola Tesla!! The end wraps things up neatly and sets an attractive foundation for the next book in the series. ( )
