Prodigal by Tyler H. Jolley and Sherry D. Ficklin

Today I am sharing my review of Prodigal the second book in the Lost Imperials series. Back in 2013, I stumbled upon a book with a super cool cover and synopsis, it ended up making my top ten list and introduced me to two authors whose works I now crave and enjoy. That book was Extracted, the first in the Lost Imperials series by Sherry D. Ficklin and Tyler Jolley. Published by Clean Teen this …

Dawn’s Early Light by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris

Gads, I just love the dynamic duo of Braun and Books in the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series. Dawn’s Early Light has them traveling to the Americas, in danger and advancing their partnership. James Langton is such an unbelievable pleasure to listen to and I just slip into the world. Steampunk, a suspenseful case, and deliciously good banter had me smiling.

The Incredible Charlotte Sycamore and the Secret Traps by Kate Maddison

I love a good steampunk novel wrapped in mystery and was delighted to read The Incredible Charlotte Sycamore and the Secret Traps by Kate Maddison. The author suggested and it is true, this will work as a standalone. For me however, I think my connection to the characters would have been stronger had I first read, The Incredible Charlotte Sycamore. Featuring a young cast of characters who meddle in mysteries and dabble in steampunk with a sweet understated romance The Incredible Charlotte Sycamore and the Secret Traps was an engaging tale.

Sky Pirates by Liesel Schwarz

I was a little nervous starting Sky Pirates the third book in Liesel Schwarz’s Chronicles of Light and Shadow. The second book, A Clockwork Heart, left me frustrated, but wow Sky Pirates brought back all of the elements I loved in A Conspiracy of Alchemists. Action packed, with lovable characters this steampunk has us traveling the world, and engaging in battles. The heroine Elle Chance is fantastic. She is kick-ass and determined. I don’t recommend crossing her.
