Publisher's Summary

Available for the first time in a single volume, all five Nyssa Glass Adventures.

Nyssa Glass is a reformed cat burglar turned electrician's apprentice, settled into a life repairing videophones and radio-sets. However, when her past comes calling, she finds herself on the run for a murder she did not commit. As her quiet life goes up in sparks, she must face killer robots, menacing villains, and sarcastic computers in a race for survival.

Nyssa has her hands full just trying to stay one step ahead of the police, but she still has time for adventure, humor, and even a taste of romance.

An enjoyable collection of Steampunk adventures

I got this book for free. My opinions are my own. Real Rating = 3.5* While by no means perfect, I very much enjoyed the majority of these stories. I really liked both Nyssa & her love interest (minor spoiler for first story, so not listing name), as well as the majority of the supporting cast introduced through out the stories. And I was pulling for them to get their HEAs. My least favorite of the stories was NG and the Juliet Dilemma, since I just couldn't like Amara and Reynard. I can't really pick a favorite (I'm never good at doing that), although the last was strongly emotional. DIVERSITY: A main character is permanently disabled (although he has a nifty steampunk wheelchair that allows him to stand for brief periods, ski down stairs, etc). CONTENTS (for those who care): Kisses only / A few "d" words / Accounts of some past (pretty awful) murders / Some brief domestic abuse by side character / Christian elements NARRATION: Gets the job done / Speed was good for most of it, however the computer voice is a bit slow / Distinct character voices / Sound quality is not the highest, although it wasn't anything specific for most of the book, being most noticeable if you have to turn up the volume in a noisy environment. There were some segments, however, that sounded a bit hollow / The narrator repeats the title and the chapter number for every chapter, which becomes annoying.

Fantastic Series

I loved Nyssa Glass! I stumbled upon the first while scrolling through steampunk books while on vacation and spent way too much time (while I should have been enjoying the beach) reading! These books are simply irresistible. They are fun and unique and, of course, steampunk! What more is there to say than that?! This is in my top five steampunk series ever! I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review from the author/publisher/narrator.

Excellent <3

Wow, I totally love all of these books. They were all sweet, full of action and adventure, and beautifully written. I really hope there is more for this series! (I'd love to review them if there are!) All five of these books were so good, I finished them all in one day. I am a big fan of fantasy, action, adventure kind of books and these satisfied all of my needs, Even romance, but it was well done, not all mushy (gag). I loved the narrator too. She did a fabulous job! I hope to read more from H.L Burke. She is a fabulous author! This book was given to me at my request (Thanx Heidi!). I am providing an honest and voluntary review.

Loved It

A quirky fun steampunk series. Nyssa is comfortable in her new life. After finally leaving her old life of cat burglary behind, she’s not too excited to be thrust back into the world when danger comes knocking on her door. Steampunk isn’t a genre I read often, but it’s gems like this that make me want to read more of it. Nyssa was a very inspired main character. I loved her humor and her quirky attitude. Her personality in general was easy to connect to. After learning of her backstory, it was easy to understand how she came to be in the situation she was in. There was plenty of suspense and mystery in this story. Lots of intrigue and mystery too. Nyssa wasn’t the only character that was well-fleshed out, and I loved that each book in the series offered fun new insights to the characters, showing us new perspectives that the other books had not. Narration was fantastic. The narrator did a good job of differentiating character voices, even the robotic ones. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Great steam punk series

I was hesitant to get this series because of a couple of negative reviews, but I am glad I made the plunge. This series had me from the very first book. I was surprised how much I was drawn into liking Nyssa and Eliss. I thought these books were very well written and there was just the right amount detail and description as well as character development to allow the story to shine through. I laughed when they were happy or when they overcame problems and almost cried when they were sad, hurting or in the midst of almost insurmountable trouble. I also like the fact that this book drew me in with hardly any swearing or any overtly sexual behavior. I enjoyed this series as an adult, but would not mind at all reading it to my kids (when they were younger) or to my grand kids. I cannot wait for more of my credits so I can try another of her series of books. Wonderful job H. L. Burke. I hope you continue to write amazing stories in the style you wrote these.

Very Enjoyable Series

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own. This book is all the Nyssa Glass novellas, except the prequel. I liked this compilation as each stories builds off of the previous one. What I liked best is that the last book brings the story back to the beginning to bring the readers full circle to the end. I loved Nyssa and her growth in each story. How she learned to trust and love was very touching. I absolutely loved how Ellis came into Nyssa's life and how that was brought back again in the final book of the series. All of the books are narrated by Mary Ann Weathers. She did a wonderful job in giving each character a distinct sound and personality. Her narration made me empathize even more with Nyssa and the characters of her world.

sorry i wanted to like it

i usually dont try books with less than 500 reviews. but, i took a chance. i really really wanted to like it. i believe it is a great teen book. it was just too easy to predict the events in advance, book appeared to be written by a formula. not that is not all bad but takes some of the mystery and surprise out of story. others will like it i am sure.

Sweet and fun.

I just read/listened to the entire Nyssa Glass series. I really thoroughly enjoyed this series as a street urchin orphan becomes a young woman whose icy heart thaws under the consistent love. This has all of the wonder of steampunk with the twist of being a sweet clean romance with a hint of Christian spirituality. It doesn’t ever come off as proselytizing. It’s more of quick whispered prayers sprinkled with a lot of “thank God”. The mystery is initially Nyssa being accused of a crime for which she claims she is innocent. It’s not a perfect book. For example a 17 year old no matter what her life experiences is not mature enough for a couple of the integral scenarios. In spite of that I thoroughly enjoyed the series and will miss these characters that I came to care about—-and that’s what makes a great book to me. **I was given a free copy of this book in lieu of an honest review
