    In financial straits and on a sure path to spinsterhood, Venetia Milton thought her stay at the remote, ramshackle Arcane House, far from society's prying eyes, would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engineer her own ravishment. She was there to photograph the relics and artifacts collected by a highly secretive organization, founded two centuries earlier by an eccentric alchemist.

    Overall

    Yes, Amanda Quick gives us a few really steamy scenes, but what impressed me most was the storyline. (You could almost cut out the steamy parts, but they are really fun!)

    I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say that the characters are well-written, the heroine is a strong individual (not just waiting to be rescued), the period details are great, and there is a real puzzle/mystery to keep you guessing.

    As for the narrator, Anne Flosnick has a delightful voice. She is able to do men's voices quite well, and her vocal variety for all the characters seems to me to be spot on.

    Enjoy!!

    The Industrial Revolution has escalated into all-out warfare. Sixteen years have passed since the Heterodyne Boys, benevolent adventurers and inventors, disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Today, Europe is ruled by the Sparks, dynasties of mad scientists ruling over - and terrorizing - the hapless population with their bizarre inventions and unchecked power, while the downtrodden dream of the Heterodynes’ return. At Transylvania Polygnostic University, a pretty, young student named Agatha Clay seems to have nothing but bad luck.

    "Great Story, Great Narrator"
    Overall

    This book is so much fun! The characters are well-developed, the world is a fascinating alternate universe, and I can't wait to find out what happens in part two (soon, I hope).
    Ms. Dawe has a great range. The Jaegermonsters are hysterically funny, and Crosp's voice is perfection itself! It's hard to believe this is just one person narrating. I certainly hope the same narrator will be used for the sequel(s).
