Since I've had several of you ask for steampunk book recommendations, I thought I'd put together a little list. So, if you like Victorian alternative history adventures with dashes of the supernatural, airships, and plenty of gadgetry, read on!
Note: I'll just be telling you whether I liked each title one or not, so hit the individual links for more info and plot summaries over on Amazon.
That said, I can't recommend the rest of the series nearly as enthusiastically. I've read the first three, and felt books 2 and 3 just went downhill. The things that happen with the main characters also made me mad. ('Cuz I take my fictional characters seriously, dang it.) That said, if you simply ADORE the first book, then by all means keep going and judge for yourself.
Next up is one of my all-time favorites in any genre:
Next up is a book by one of my favorite authors:
Those are the steampunk titles I've read thus far. Now here's one Epbot reader Teabunny recommended:
The Iron Duke, part of the Iron Seas Series, by Meljean Brook
This has great reviews, and - in case the cover didn't tip you off - is a steamy alt-universe romance. Hubba hubba.
I've also heard good things about this one:
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest
It's on my to-read list, so I'll let you know how it goes!
Have any of you read it? How do you like it?
So check that out, and then share your own steampunk reading recommendations in the comments!
