A great YA Steampunk Fantasy Trilogy

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Eric Asher is the author of one of my favorite series, the Vesik Series. So, going for this series was a no brainer for me, even though it is geared for YA. I wasn't sure what to expect from Saskia Maarleveld as a narrator but she had an interesting voice and I enjoyed listening to it. Steamborn is a steampunk, fantasy trilogy about a young guy with a knack for gadgets and a propensity to getting into trouble. This is the 3rd book of the trilogy. Very enjoyable, even for adults. Well worth a credit but I would recommend going for the boxed set.

A solid conclusion

If you have enjoyed the first two books in the series (and if you didn't I'm not sure why you would be looking at the third) then you will enjoy this one. It provides a solid conclusion and fitting to the story.

While there was a fair bit of world building in the first two books, this one foregoes that and settles into finishing off the story, through intrigue and action. The systems and rules of the world are in place, and now the book just uses them to tell an interesting story.

The action itself is not overly detailed but it's not really trying to tell the story of the individual fights and actions within the war. It get's the point across, while leaving much of the actual details to the reader.

Without spoiling anything the book ends soon after the climax, with little to no details on what happens after. The aftermath is unclear. A little epilogue to close that out would have been great, otherwise the story as solid and did not stumble in it's ending (which some trilogies have been known to do).

Narration for this one is solid, same as the previous two in the series. Maarleveld continues her good work. If you liked the previous ones, you will like this.
