PIXIE’S REVIEW: This is a brilliant steampunk story that is fascinating from the first page. It begins with Max’s backstory, showing us what happens to him before he flees Germany it then switches to 2 years later to Jasper being approached an then on to the convention where Max and Jasper finally meet. And then we enjoy a rousing story as we are pulled into a world where the occult meets science.

Not only do we delve into the fascinating world of inventions but we also have a dash of the occult from Jasper’s sister Octavia, it’s wonderful the way that Jasper and Max’s invention was interwoven with Octavia’s occult invention and the stunning effects that resulted.

Max and Jasper’s relationship was wonderfully written for the time of 1910; it has the old world feel to it and is an absolute delight. They connect on both an intellectual and physical level and are a perfect foil for each other, I must admit to hoping that there will be further stories with Max and Jasper because the world they come from is just fascinating.

I recommend this to those who adore steampunk, gentle love stories, brilliant characters, interesting storylines and happy endings.

Thank you, Pixie, for this wonderful review, and for everything you do to bring readers and writers together.

Best Review Evah!

I’m trying to grab some “pull quotes” or pithy little sound bytes from Molly Lolly’s review, but damn it, it’s all so good I’m posting the entire thing here. Don’t believe me? Read it on their review site.

There’s also a fun interview with me. Molly asks some excellent questions.

Review:
This was such a lovely story. I loved how the inventions were described throughout the book. They took on a life of their own and made for some great laughs and wonderful aspect of the story. The humor involved with the inventions had me laughing at the worst moments. Like riding the train home and having people stare at me as if I were crazy.

Max and Jasper were such sweethearts. They both overcome so much to get to where they can be together and live without fear of someone ruining everything. While you see more of Max’s background on page as it directly relates to the story, you definitely learn about Jasper’s past. It’s wonderful watching these two dance around each other as they slowly figure out if they can risk showing their feelings. Those emotions come through so clearly on page.

Max is a character you can see grow throughout the story. He is so strong as he deals with everything life throws his way. You can’t help but admire him. Jasper initially comes off as the absentminded professor type. But he’s so much more than that. He’s a gentle soul but with a core of steel that will do everything in his power to protect those he deems worthy. And it’s generally those around him that are less fortunate in some way, whether by social class or other tragedy.

Watching Max and Jasper let their minds run away with them as they ponder new ideas and potential inventions was fascinating. It held the hope of that generation where inventions ruled society. Yet there was also a subtle undercurrent of things wrong with the day. Between tensions rising in Europe, social class hierarchy still firmly in place, and the negative attitude towards women, minorities and LGBT specifically, you get this push and pull of society that is on the brink of huge things. While the story is definitely an alternate history of sorts, Ms. Grant does an amazing job portraying the feelings that were prevalent of the beginning of that century.

Part of me wants more stories in this world because it was such a pleasure to read. Yet there’s not really anything left unanswered and I fear another book would ruin this one in some way. However if one is written I will gladly read it. Stars: Four
