    Book exchanged for an honest review:Bettina Rothschild~Rana and her husband Arjuna are detectives for the Ministry of Justice sent out to stop a thief named Ranulf Kaiser. Ranulf Kaiser is the younger brother to Ministry of Justice Minister Gisele Kaiser. It's Bettina and Arjuna's job to return Ranulf to his prison cell as soon as possible without alerting the media of the jailbreak. Ranulf has four hour head start in Eisenstadt but that is soon cut short by Arjuna's photographic memory. Eisenstadt is full of talking birds such as pigeons, crows, and ravens. Bettina sees a raven following her decides to call him Mister Scratch. Bettina thinks they are being lead on a wild goose chase until new evidence suggests otherwise. Master spies and assassins called The Shadows usually last named Nacht tell the husband and wife team that they must keep Ranulf from accomplishing his mysterious mission. They meet up at Hidegard Goldstein's workshop where Ranulf steals autogyro to go to drifting isle called Inselmond. Can Bettina and Arjuna stop Ranulf? Why did Ranulf really break out of jail? Who are the Shadows? Who is behind Ranulf's jailbreak? Your answers await you in The Kaiser Affair.

    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.
