I'm always happy when a new book by K.A. Stewart arrives in the mail and The Music Box Girl is no exception. It's everything I hope for in steampunk: Gears, automatons, steam--and the clothes! Oh, I'm supposed to talk about the plot. I'll stop fantasizing about all those things now. Tenor Anton Krol comes to the Detroit Opera House and runs into the dual brick walls of a temperamental star and being an unknown from the country. Since he wants to eat, he takes a job with the stage crew. His "helpful" co-workers let him know the opera house is haunted. Anton's a hard worker and is soon one of the guys. Hey, it's a job. With a very interesting perk: Private singing lessons from a mysterious tutor. His tutor ups his skills just in time for Anton to step in when the star tenor walks off in a huff. Then Anton's childhood friend Bess arrives in Detroit. Bess is an adventurer, an explorer, and their friendship becomes much more. Anton's tutor is Not Pleased. But as a reader, I was certainly pleased. Jealousy! Gunfire! Secret passages! Ghosts! Murder! Mad chases through dark streets! And a dirigible! The Music Box Girl kept me entertained from the mysterious opening to the gripping climax. I spent a long, rainy Saturday immersed in Stewart's intricate steampunk world. Her characterizations are complex, her action scenes burst off the page, and her plotting is tight. I wanted to stay in MBG's steampunk Detroit and especially in the opera house. Not many authors create worlds that make me wish I could step into the pages and make a new life there. Stewart has written another winner.
