-RT Book Reviews, Compelling- Page-turner)
"At times witty and snarky as well as suspenseful and terrifying, this story grabs readers immediately and propels them along the streets of London in what is an alternate 1895. Automatons, computers and steam engines give this book a feel both futuristic and fantastical. The instant connection between Tweed and Nightingale is believable and the reader will eagerly await the sequel to see what is in store for these two. …Even those readers who do not embrace the steampunk genre will love the pacing and mystery of this story. Highly recommended for ages 12 and older."

"An excellent steampunk YA adventure novel.... If you like your action/heist tales dressed up in goggles and greatcoats, this is a perfect choice."
"If you're a fan of mysteries, science fiction, and witty dialogue you'll definitely want to pick up a copy of The Lazarus Machine!"
"One of the richest Steampunk stories I have read, period."
