The first chapter is a little dense with details, but stick with it. She has a lot information to convey for you to understand the story, but once she gets past that, you are off and running! Its a really interesting world with all the wonderful little steampunk details to make you smile. And the sex, good heavens!
I liked everything about this from start to finish. I hope the rest of them are this good. It moved fast. The world building is good and I really enjoyed both the story and the characters.
The narrator was wonderful.
THERE IS NOT ONE THING THAT I DID NOT LOVE ABOUT THIS BOOK. THE STORY, THE ROMANCE, THE ACTION, THE DIALOGUE EVERTHING. VERY WELL WRITTEN
I AM RELATIVELY NEW TO STEAMPUNK SO I HAVE NOTHING TO COMPARE IT TO.
I HAD LISTENED TO A LORRAINE HEATH BOOK NARRATED BY ADELE AND WAS SO IMPRESSED BY HER PERFORMANCE THAT FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME IN OVER 700 AUDIO BOOKS PURCHESED I WENT LOOKING FOR OTHER BOOKS BASED ON THE NARRATOR ALONE. SINCE SHE DOES NOT HAVE MANY I DECIDED TO GIVER THE IRON DUKE A TRY EVEN THOUGH I DID NOT THINK I WOULD LIKE IT. L. O. V. E. D IT AND HAVE PURCHESSED THE REST OF THE AUDIOBOOKS .
THIS BOOK COVERED ALL EMOTIONAL REACTIONS THE ROMANCE WAS GREAT
THIS BOOK WILL TURN YOU ON TO STEAMPUNK AS NO OTHER WILL. AT 63 I AM NOW INTO STEAMPUNK ALL DUE TO FAYE ADELE.
The plot was interesting. Easy to get into. I rated this 4 stars because the sex scenes derailed the story. Also, the Iron Duke was a jerk so his "you're in my bed whether you like it or not" didn't go well with me. I loved Mina. She was so cool...her heroism was just all in a day's work. I think the Kindle follow-on should have been part of the main story. I would have rated it higher.
The whole Steampunk world was very original. I liked the plot (s).
I thought she was great and made the story.
No. I wanted to fast forward through the sex scenes because it took away from the story progression. One minute you have exciting action, the next you come to a screeching halt for the sex. I don't have a problem with sex scenes but they were overly wrought and significantly slowed the pace of the story.
Heroine, def kick butt.
First Adele's book
The storyline took me by surprise.
Good book, stick with it till the end.
Not from the author but the narration was good.
Something less sci-if, more romantic.
The voices and inflections were distinct. Good job.
Characterization was not the problem. I didn't realize this was steampunk. Confusing and distracting....all the bugs and technology
This novel needs to be labeled better in terms of genre
