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.

Great!

This was an incredibly well-written YA story. I have really enjoyed this whole series and enjoyed listening to it with my teenager. Unique story and fantastic narration. Highly recommend!

Can't wait until the next installment.

This is the 3rd book in the Steamborn series and it didn't disappoint. Action and drama are around every corner, but who are the future enemies of Jacob and Alice? And how far will hey have to go for peace? I'll be counting the days until Eric Asher can get back to completing this series.

Perfect Conclusion

This has been one of my favorite series to listen too and this book concluded the series perfectly. I listened to this book almost nonstop because I had to know what was happening with the war and with Jacob and his friends.

This book is perfect for anyone who likes a bit of fantasy in their lives. Also, if you're interested in steampunk, this is the perfect book to listen to for inspiration while making a costume (yes, that's what I was doing and it was a perfect companion). I highly recommend this series, but start with book one and work your way to this one!

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.

A Great end to a great series.

As series go this one is excellent and the story takes a more dark mature route this time and it works.
