    My Review:

    Whenever people approach me for book reviews, I state two genres that I prefer not to review in the romance spectrum...steampunk and historical. This book was both, but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it regardless of the fact that I normally don't enjoy this genre.

    Geneva is a doctor and a family friend has found someone in desperate need of a doctor, Magnus. He washed upon the shore in the grasp of a dead kraken (giant octopus) and is dying. Geneva comes to his aid, but he continues to decline until it becomes apparent that his health is tied to his own land. He needs to get back to his island so he has a chance to heal.

    This was a historical book filled with a mixture of magick and industrial/steam technologies. From the Knights of the Round Table to mechanical dogs, this book had a bit of everything and I truly enjoyed the way the story was put together.

    It's a novella with a lot going on. As a result, I don't feel like I got to know Magnus and Geneva as well as I would have liked. But what I did see, I liked. Geneva is a tough female doctor in a time when that is not the norm. Magnus is a laird who is willing to make the tough sacrifices for his people. In their own ways, they each are all about caring for other people...many times at their own detriment. For that reason, it was fun to see them find happiness in each other. It was a fun book to read.

    Fun and imaginative

    I loved this book. It was an easy read that was interesting. Good story line, good character development, and imaginative atmosphere...I can't wait to read more of the series.
