    A fun expansion into the greater world introduced in Boneshaker.

    A fun expansion into the greater world introduced in Boneshaker. This book follows Croggon Hainey as he chases down his stolen airship, and former CSA spy turned Pinkerton agent Maria "Belle" Boyd chases him. We get to see more of country and the impact of the long-running Civil War. This is a fast-paced adventure that kept me wanting more. Really enjoying this series.

    Cherie Priest scores another hit in her rich world of an alterna

    Cherie Priest scores another hit in her rich world of an alternate 19th Century USA in which the Civil War is stretching out for decades. She creates very distinctive lead characters and then does a good job of putting them through the ringer in this short (208 pages) book, picking up the thread of a plot about escaped slave and air pirate Captain Croggin Beauregard Hainey, who had a small part in the novel Boneshaker. In pursuit of him is a new character, too-famous-to-be-a-spy ex-Confederate spy Maria "Belle" Boyd, now working for the Pinkerton Detective Agency on behalf of the Union Army.

    The action is kept fast and furious and fairly believable. The use of geography over mid-America is made interesting by using powered airships (she's never precise about how the engines work, propellers?) to move quickly between cities. I had a little trouble believing that landing a powered and armored dirigible anywhere within a mile of a remote building could be done with any amount of stealth. Perhaps the commonplace nature of airships in this world allow for it.

    Another failing, if I may call it that, is that there is no clear antagonist in the story. Well there is one, but they are kept all too mysterious and unexplored. Upon reflection, Boneshaker could be seen to have a similar shortcoming.

    In any event, the whole thing is an enjoyable and all too short romp that reminded me of one the better episodes of The Wild Wild West. Belle Boyd would certainly give James West a run for his money.
