    Love the Iron Seas series

    My only criticism is that the story is too short,
    I wish Meljean could clone herself and write twice as fast.

    Great quick read

    Meljean does a great job, again. It was a treat to see Inspector Mina Wentworth and The Iron Duke evolving together after their "Happily Ever After". The mystery was clever and incorporated other characters I had wanted to see again. The world building was also pretty clear so I think this could be read independently if you haven't read her other works. 105 pages of deliciousness.

    Just keeps getting better!

    I really enjoy Meljean Brook's steampunk. It's racy, but has a great world and stories. With this story, she really shows she can write short pieces as well as novels. I love the Mina character and am glad she is continuing to get stories.

    Rhys is finishing up preparations for a ball next week. Detective
    Inspector Mina looks forward to an evening with her husband of eight
    glorious months, although not telling him about the shiny bruise she got
    at work as he worries. When suddenly she gets called away due to a
    murder of an associate who wants to reward factories for not completely
    converting to machines. Things run deeper than expected with this
    investigation and mystery. Mina learns new things of her new husband,
    and one thing she may not care much for... A whole mystery is of its
    own and Mina and her husband learn a little more about themselves and
    family, growing a little more in the idea of together. There is
    difficulty with the journalists based on her personal relationships and
    her investigations, which makes the case a little tricky too. I enjoy
    meeting the characters. Anne - the young girl Mina seems to have
    "adopted", Scarsdale - Rhy's friend and business partner.
    Then there's Mina and Rhys. Wow, what a couple! We get a quick
    glimpse as to how Mina and Rhys met. We get a strong sense of how much
    Rhys loves and worries for Mina. And how much Mina loves her husband.
    I get the feel there is a long history here. One with the Horde and
    nanoagents, the use of mechanical augmentation in bodies as well. We
    see different body parts of iron and mechanical, partly the steampunk,
    that are useful to the people to make a living. There are hints to Rhys
    past and sounds of great excitement. We learn of his involvement
    against the Horde. I will say all the details of happenings make me
    curious to read it all collectively and slowly in its time as it
    unravels. We get views of the story from Mina and Rhys. Both are so in
    love yet unsure if it'll last, sounds like quickly fell in love and
    married and maddeningly in love with each other still. As this novella
    does come after the first novel, Iron Duke, in the Iron Seas series, it
    can be read on it's own. The ground work for the world is here and you
    will get through. The first chapter is heavy with world and character
    layout. The story is a complete story in itself to enjoy. The second
    chapter dives right into the murder mystery. I read it before the first
    novel, understood and enjoyed it being new to the world and characters.
    You can too!

    Mina has now been married to the Iron Duke for eight months, eight of the happiest months of her life. But, each day she can see the stress and worry on his face when she leaves to work and all the potential dangers that entails. Especially as their is a new murderer in town, with strange and mysterious means of killing his victims and Mina and Newberry are on the case.

    This novella takes place after the events of The Iron Duke allowing us a glimpse in to the married live of Mina and Rhys, the aforementioned Duke and allows us not only to see how they are getting along, but also to follow Mina once again as she works a case. As a rabid fan of this series, I loved this book but I also believe fans of the non-rabid variety would also enjoy it. It has enough adventure to keep it interesting and enough sexy times to keep it exciting.

    What I liked most was seeing Rhys open up more, we get to see a bit more of the man behind the Iron Duke facade as he becomes more comfortable with his emotions, not only his love for Mina, but for their adopted daughter Anna and his best friend Scarsdale. All of this gave the book sweet edge, which had me sighing into my cuppa as I read.

    A great addition to the Iron Seas series but it is worth reading at least The Iron Duke, before you read this to give you a better understanding of the characters and the world. I now can’t wait to continue on with the series and see what Meljean Brook has in store next.

    Excellent Sequel

    Brook continues the adventures of Detective Inspector Mina Wentworth and her beloved Iron Duke in this exciting novella. There is murder, mystery, romance and weird machines in this richly-detailed steampunk world. The characters are fascinating and complex; I love the relationship between Mina and Rhys.

    Highly recommended -- but *only* to those who have read The Iron Duke. If you have not, go read it! -- lyradora

    So fun visiting Mina and Rhys again!  Although the mystery was not as intriguing in this novella as in the "Iron Duke", it was still entertaining and perfectly placed in the post-revolutionary steampunk world of the Iron Seas.
    Seeing romance characters post-wedding/happily-ever-after was a unique idea, and they were just as endearing as ever, Rhys even more-so this time around.  Loved it!

    Great addition to iron duke

    It was nice to get a novella about Mina and Rhys and a preview of the new one. It was a fast read but I really enjoyed reading more of their story and i hope Ms. Brooks continues with this series. I really enjoy it!
