    Thanks for your feedback!

    Over the years I have become more interested in the steampunk genre and the various perspectives the authors give their books/series. I must admit that at times The Iron Wyrm Affair was a bit hard to comprehend; mainly due to some odd words and turns of phrase which I am assuming are indicative of the time period in which the book is loosely based off of. In that regard, I wish that I was able to read this book in its ebook format (instead of the library copy I did read) so as to easily utilize the dictionary function on my eReader. While I am widely read, this book did pose a welcome challenge of vocabulary which did affect the speed in which I read it. Nonetheless I did find this book engaging and thought provoking. The characters were very unique and secretive. I feel that I have not fully grasped them as a whole and that makes me want to read more in this series in the hopes of finding out more about them and their motivations. Overall the book was excellent and very descriptive.

    Magic meets Steampunk

    Perhaps the problem I had with this story is that the magic seemed so ill-defined. Part of the charm of the Victorian age was the (often fanciful) ways in which they tried to explain their world with science. I never really got a full understanding of the magic that Bannon used, and the plot suffered for it. Which is a shame, because I loved the characters so much! I'd love to see a prequel showing us more of Bannon'a childhood, or Clare's time in school. I'll still read the next one, and perhaps if the author properly defines the magic it'll all click for me. Or maybe I'm a little too much like Claire. That's a possibility as well.
