  • Shelley meets Wells meets Austen!

    It takes a certain amount of chutzpah to take the worlds of novels like Frankenstein, Pride and Prejudice, and The Time Machine and pull them all together around the Battle of Waterloo, but this book does it. Its steampunk sensibility flows cleanly from the plot. I'm looking forward to the next book!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Timetravel, Austen and Shelley, a good read.

    I am a fan of time travel novels, steampunk, fantasy and historical novels, so finding them all in one book made this one a must-read! It begins in the middle of the battle of Waterloo which Wellington is about to lose. He sends an envoy to collect his secret weapon, troops not born but created in the manner of Frankenstein's monster. They are completely fearless, although very difficult to control, and defeat Napoleon's forces with ease. This will, however, lead to unforeseen consequences. Back in England, also in 1815, we meet Elizabeth, a young lady who has huge difficulty with the restrictions placed on her by her position in society. Rather than attending society balls and arranging a marriage to a husband with a respectable position and income, she would rather be out in the country enjoying nature and climbing trees. So when this young lady receives a gift of a mysterious watch which somehow can transport her and injured soldier William through time, the adventure begins. They are first catapulted into 1885, where they soon discover that England as they knew it has changed drastically and it soon becomes apparent that they can possibly influence the future by altering certain key events in the past. Of course, the usual problem with time travel quickly raises its head and shows that altering things in the past does not always have the wished for effect in the future. Some alterations can actually worsen the situation and living conditions of those in the possible future. I found this book to be interestingly written and the writer used her obvious historical knowledge to good effect. I enjoyed her use of language on the whole but did spot a couple of Americanisms buried in the text. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
