    Ganymede, like all of the Clockwork Century novels before it, wa

    Ganymede, like all of the Clockwork Century novels before it, was simply delightful. Set in Priest’s alternate history, steampunk, zombie-containing Civil War era America, it is a story about air pirates, brothel employees, family, old friends, adventures, airships, seaships, voodoo, war and zombies. I’m sure I missed a few things somewhere in there, but you get the point that there’s quite a lot going on. However, it doesn’t feel forced or chaotic in any bad way. The result is a fun alternate history/steampunk/adventure romp through New Orleans. I enjoyed seeing all of the old characters again, and liked the new characters too. Ganymede does a great job of bringing together and tying up some of the loose ends from Boneshaker and Dreadnought. I’d recommend it to fans of the previous Clockwork Century novels, Cherie Priest, steampunk, alternate history, or anyone who just wants a fun read.

    Darn good read that's darn good fun

    I finally have to give one of Cherie Priest's books 5 stars. It's not perfection and it's not literature, but it's well written and darn good fun. I was disappointed to have reached the end, not because it was bad, but because I wanted more. This is the best story in the series so far. Since the others all got 4 stars, this gets 1 more. This book, like the others, is full of wonderful characters, most with wonderful, arcane names. What's different is that in this one the relationships between the characters get explored a bit more richly and broadly. This is a result of a somewhat more laid back pace, which wasn't lazy, but does allow for more exploration of characters and the setting. The next book in the series can't come out too soon for me.

    a great alternate Civil War thriller

    In New Orleans, brothel owner Josephine Early asks her former lover Andan Cly to pilot the Ganymede submarine to the North. Since this mission fits his prime assignment to bring needed supplies to the human Seattle underground in which zombies and gas rule the surface, Cly agrees as he tries to go a bit more legal with his endeavors.

    However, Jo fails to inform the air pilot of the Naamah Darling that the ship has never been driven successfully, that the ship sits at the bottom of lake Pontchartrain, and the Texian and Confederate armies, who wait at the mouth of the mighty Mississippi, will kill to possess it. If he survives the military forces waiting for his run, Cly still has to drive the vessel that has proven to be a death trap for all his predecessors.

    The latest Clockwork Century steampunk historical fantasy (see Boneshaker, Clementine and Dreadnought) is a great alternate Civil War thriller. Cly is a super antihero who wants to atone for his dealing in sap with the supply run though not quite going totally legal as gun running remains a lucrative activity. Loaded with action, fans will appreciate the reunion of the Union spy brothel owner and the bootlegging air pilot.
