Fun steampunk story filled with twists and turns

What did you like best about this story?

The story weaves several plot lines together which play off each other and makes for a very enjoyable read/listen. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the Parasol Protectorate Series.

What about Emily Gray’s performance did you like?

I really enjoy Emily Gray's ability to change accents and read for both female and male roles. She has an amazing talent for voices!

A Lovely Book

Any additional comments?

I loved the writing, loved the characters (yes, they were all stereotypes, but it worked in the same way as a melodrama works), loved the setting, and the action. I even loved Oscar. I just kept smiling throughout the book - all 17 hours. It's a comedy, a romance, and a farce in the style of Twelfth Night and the Importance of Being Earnest (as other reviewers have mentioned). The author cautions against "emulating the behavior of any of the characters" as "They're all quite mad." And freely admits that he has no idea "what I am talking about." when he describes the science in the book. Don't expect science fiction. In among all the comedy and romance runs a strong thread of women's rights, independence, and strength of character. I would never have guessed it was written by a man. But don't let that put you off; it's too much fun. Sadly, it is the only book Audible has by this author.

- Marie "I love mysteries in the style of P.D. James, Rex Stout, Elizabeth Peters, Dave Duncan, etc. I love sci fi written by Issac Asimov (the robot books), Douglas Adams, Jack McDevitt (Alex Benedict series) and Susan Collins. I love fantasy written by Terry Pratchett, and Kim Harrison. I love Kate Morton. I don't like graphic descriptions of violence."
