Unlike the fast-moving and exciting BONESHAKER, an irritating and unappealing lead character makes THE INEXPLICABLES a hard slog. ( )

Not as good as the others. I think it's the main characters and the premise of this book isn't as interesting or as exciting to me.

I have enjoyed Cherie Priest's prior books in this series. I enjoy the characters and their development, and the fast-paced action. However, I believe with this book, like Fonzie on waterski's, the series has "jumped the shark". Was the introduction of a blight-poisoned Sasquatch really necessary? The time spent on this tangent would have been much better applied to a further description of the underground and how it was being rebuilt. Maybe next time? ( )

I like Cherie Priest's Clockwork Century stories. This one read a wee bit flat to me, but I'm not sure that is the fault of the book. I was distracted as I read it and never really settled fully into it.

It seemed fitting to have a sap addict (recovering) as the protagonist and I really enjoyed seeing Princess Sealth take a more central role. Beyond that, it seemed to just be another visit to the Doornails. This is a good thing, but not as interesting as other gifts Priest has given us in this series. ( )

Epigraph
So I became a dreamer, and acquired an indisposition to all bodily activity; and I was fretful and inordinately passionate, and as I could not play at anything, and was slothful, I was despised and hated by the boys.

-Samuel Taylor Coleridge,

in a letter to his friend Thomas Poole
