I really enjoyed Thomas K. Carpenter's Fires of Alexandria, as narrated by Elizabeth Klett, which is a steampunk novel about the real inventor Heron of Alexandria. This novel is the continuation of Heron's adventures, and develops the character of her niece Sepharia really well, too. This is also excellently read by Elizabeth Klett.
