Of Silk and Steam

For some reason I can no longer remember, I picked up Of Silk and Steam, the fifth book in Bec McMaster's London Steampunk series before reading the previous four (and didn't get around to posting a review here!), but fortunately enjoyed it sufficiently to want to go back and read those and then to ...

Heart of Iron

Bec McMaster has created a detailed and original world for her London Steampunk series, a steam-powered but recognisable version of Victorian London that is populated by humans, mechanoids and blue bloods and ruled over by the Echelon.  When I reviewed the first book, Kiss of Steel, I gave a bri ...

A
Dukes Are Forever

To Catch a Rogue

Bec McMaster has done it again.  Fast paced, suspenseful and romantic, To Catch a Rogue is a terrific addition to her marvelous  London Steampunk universe.  Like its predecessors, the novel spotlights one couple whilst integrating their love story into the larger overarching plot linking The Blue ...

You Only Love Twice

The third book in Bec McMaster’s London Steampunk: The Blue Blood Conspiracy series, You Only Love Twice boasts an engrossing, intricately-woven and high-stakes suspense plot woven through  a steamy second-chance romance and I was glued to it from pretty much start to finish.  We’ve reached th ...

Kiss of Steel

Kiss of Steel is Bec McMaster’s début novel and the first in her London Steampunk series.  Rather like Kristen Callihan’s Darkest London novels, the books in this series are set in a recognisable Victorian London, which enables the author to get right into the story without the need for extens ...

The Mech Who Loved Me

I’ll start this review by saying that while The Mech Who Loved Me could be read as a standalone novel, it probably won’t make much sense to you unless you have read at least some of Bec McMaster’s London Steampunk books.  In that series, the author introduces and develops her alternative visi ...

Of Silk and Steam

I adore steampunk. The combination of historicals and paranormal elements and Jules Verne-esque science fiction is just so much fun. I’ve read a couple of Bec McMaster books before and really enjoyed the setting and the characters, and was hoping for another homerun with this one. Sadly, I was dis ...
