A solid steampunk adventure story with all the elements you might expect: zeppelins, clockwork people, top hats, and mysterious energy weapons. Blood ties is set in the 'wild west' where the high technology of steam punk co-exists with gamblers, cowboys and gun-slingers.

I found the dialog overly wordy - it seemed that every time a character departed was like reading a transcript of teenage lovers about to hang up the phone. The main character was pretty well defined, and had a back story that often jumped off the page to hit me around the head. The other characters were clichés, from the feisty, smart, orphan girl to the wise, oriental, grandfatherly gang leader.

A great book to read if you're looking at a well formed steampunk novel that stays within the boundaries of the genre. Good action, some mystery, and plenty of cogs and gears. ( )
