Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Science Fiction, 2013

In a time when the Industrial Revolution has escalated into all-out warfare, Mad Science rules the world… with mixed success.
With the help of Krosp, Emperor of All Cats, Agatha has escaped from the massive airship known as Castle Wulfenbach. After crashing their escape dirigible, Agatha and Krosp fall in with Master Payne’s Circus of Adventure, a traveling troupe of performers dedicated to staging Heterodyne shows - dramatizations of the exploits of Bill and Barry Heterodyne and their allies - who are unaware of Agatha’s connection to the Heterodyne line.
Pursued by the ruthless Baron Klaus Wulfenbach, his handsome son Gil, and their minions (not to mention Othar Tryggvassen, Gentleman Adventurer), Agatha hides in plain sight among the circus folk, servicing their clanks and proving herself adept in performing the role of Lucrezia Mongfish, nemesis to - and later wife of - Bill Heterodyne. She also begins training under Zeetha, swordmistress and princess of the lost city of Skifander. Together, Agatha, Krosp, and the performers travel across the treacherous Wasteland of war-torn Europa, toward Mechanicsburg, and the ancestral home of the Heterodynes - Castle Heterodyne.
But with many perils standing in her way - including Wulfenbach’s crack troops, mysterious Geisterdamen, savage Jägermonsters, and the fabled Storm King - it’s going to take more than a spark of Mad Science for Agatha to get through.…
From Phil and Kaja Foglio, creators of the multiple WCCA and Hugo Award-winning webcomic Girl Genius, comes Agatha H and the Clockwork Princess, a gaslamp fantasy filled to bursting with Adventure! Romance! And Mad Science!

Read before seeing the comic

What made the experience of listening to Agatha H. and the Clockwork Princess the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed it more than the comic because I was able to visualize the characters for myself. The comic depiction of the characters was different that the picture I had created in my mind.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed Claus, because he is strong, but confused. He is controlling, controlled, and completely oblivious and I enjoyed that.

unusual and fun characters and outstanding perform

I had heard the authors interviewed and knew about the comic, before I tried this novel. I totally loved it so much more than the comic with the performance and the voices. The audio version is fabulous!

Too many footnotes

I love both the graphic novels and this series, but it seems there is a footnote every other paragraph.

Other than that, it's a great novelisation of the Girl Genius series and I love the narrator.
