The Kaiser Affair is my first true foray into the wildly popular steampunk genre. The story was well crafted, the characters are clever and fun, all things steam were fun and useful, and most of all the attention to detail was perfect. I can see why this genre is so wildly popular. I will definitely be adding more steampunk novels to my favorite reading genres. I look forward the next novel in this series.
