This is another title from 2014 that I remember fondly. It’s a lovely steampunk story where the steampunk isn’t simply adding googles, top hats, and clockwork. I remember the characters which followers of these reviews know is one of the key elements that drives my enjoyment of any book.
The plot starts with a dirigible crash and the recovery of our hero – Elian Sorrell – as he discovers his tragic loss. This loss drives him to find the plucky heroine – Hadley Fenice – trying to survive a tragic loss of her own, one that threatens her very livelihood. When the two meet, sparks fly – as they say – and the resulting tale takes them deep into adventure.
I’ve been looking for this book as I scan down through my Content and Devices list on Amazon. It’s one of those situations where I remembered the plot but not the title. I’m glad to have found it and to have found that Jorgensen has extended the series beyond that first offering I found in 2014. If you like a good story – steampunk or not – you might enjoy this well-crafted tale of love and brass. Why not grab a sample and see what you think for yourself?
