Gerard Doyle's ability to flawlessly define every character and give them unmistakable personality was a pleasure. The clever story gives steampunk a reason to exist central to the plot and chases it's own tail through all three books!
Richard Francis Burton, the genius adventurer is the picture of the african explorer! He is an honorable man of action!
His characterizations add a dimension to the characters that transcend the written word.
Yes, it was a wonderful epiphany.
This book truly puts the PUNK in Steampunk. It uses the genre as it SHOULD be used, to examine the ethical conflicts inherent in rampant technological progress. Thus making it relevant to the world we live in.
