Mark Jeffrey's first foray into "steampunk" is a rousing success! Once again, his plot lines and characters bring the story to life immediately and vibrantly. His world is chock full of fascinatingly odd steampunk machines, and equally fascinating steampunk people. For added fun, there are references to characters we've "met" in the Max Quick series, although this book stands alone, and doesn't require any prior reading of the Max Quick series. I hope Mr. Jeffrey will write more in the steampunk genre because he does it so well.

Received as a win from goodreads. This is one awesome read. Steampunk at it's best. Nozzlers, volstrang waves, Blue Bottles, Aerotels...i could hear the calliope playing. The story is great, dont know if it is just me but I found a bit of a 9/11 reference when the Germans brought the huge building down. The romanance is so well built to the tragic end and the well done conclusion. Marvelous writing I felt I was right there. made me want to grow and curl a mustashe.
