Action and adventure in a new Age of Steam!
In two scant months the nation, and all her colonies, will celebrate 160 years of Queen Victoria's glorious reign. But all is not well at the heart of the empire. It begins with a break-in at the Natural History Museum. A night watchman is murdered. An eminent Professor of Evolutionary Biology goes missing. Then a catastrophic Overground rail-crash unleashes the dinosaurs of London Zoo. But how are all these events connected? Is it really the work of crazed revolutionaries? Or are there yet more sinister forces at work? Enter Ulysses Quicksilver - dandy, rogue and agent of the throne. It is up to this dashing soldier of fortune to solve the mystery and uncover the truth before London degenerates into primitive madness and a villainous mastermind brings about the unthinkable. The downfall of the British empire!

This book is a mess. This alternate reality is a confused jumble that includes dinosaurs, space travel, and coal fired trains? I gave him the first hundred pages or so and then cut my losses. The author has promise, but needs an editor's input.

No substance. Boring

Seems like a good book except for one teensy-weensy-itty-bitty, tiiiiiiiiiiiiny detail: TOO MANY WORDS! This coming from the girl who reads Misconceptions by Sandstorm 3D, Amanda Ackers by GlennAndSasha Gabriel, and The Nexus of Kelleran by (crap I forgot his name! :X). All of which are detailed in the extremely-detailed areas of literature. But at least they don't take a good 10, 15 pages to cover two minutes or less of actual story. I may revise this later, if I get around to reading this again and if it picks up the pace after a little bit. 'Till then... FOOD EATER VERDICTA IS OUT! PEACE!
