    Story
    "Fantastical mech monsters.."

    An extremely descriptive story, I actually enjoyed the world and the stuffy imperious Emma, but found the surrounding characters even more interesting and I hate to say this as I love this authors works I sometimes got lost (even though eloquently done)in the very detailed telling, lots of rewinding back.
    There is so much going on that the development of the relationships between characters got lost in the telling with the exception of Emma and her Shield and these moments where very few and far between.
    The antagonists plan was deliciously nefarious and clever, L.S's imagination regarding the mechs and the caste type system regarding what powers you have that is the job you do is what kept me reading. It's very difficult to come up with something that is new but it's done here.
    The best bits are the fantastical monsters, plots and the pure imagination of the world.

    Story
    "excellent story, great narration with few flaws"
    What made the experience of listening to The Iron Wyrm Affair the most enjoyable?

    Moira Quirk's excellent narration crafted the characters and the foggy streets of Londinium to a tea.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Emma Bannon, a calm and collected lady who claims to be anything but with a fierce temper and sheer awesomeness that's hard to describe.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    no spoilers.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    it was, i did it and it was so worth it.


    Any additional comments?

    there are occasional mispronunciations if you're failiar with the real london but they aren't majorly distracting, treat it as a 'different world, different pronunciation' and you'll be fine.
