Having loved the first part in this trilogy, the bullet catcher's daughter, I had high expectations for this book.
They were met, this is a thrilling and gripping story, with twists and turns. The world of the gaslit empire is very cleverly put together, and in Elizabeth Barnabas we have an intelligent and unusual heroin.
Gemma Whelan brings the character to life brilliantly with her narration,

Would you listen to Unseemly Science again? Why?
Probably not, the bullet catcher series was most enjoyable, but not perhaps gripping. It was a little predictable but its a nice listen and I particularly love Gemma Whelan's voice.
What did you like best about this story?
I like long books so this trilogy suited me:I love to get to know the characters and feel I can enter their world (the Gas Lit Empire). If you like trilogies like the Name of the Wind (Rothfuss) then you will also like this trilogy too. The world is perhaps not as richly imagined as that of Pullman, Rothfuss and Rawling and it could perhaps have benefitted from being darker in nature but I would have liked a 4th book to keep going. The characters Rod Duncan creates are likeable and clear, the situations plausible in the context of the world they are in. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
