    Just as fun as the first one I m going to have to go ahead and find the next book in the series Still over the top, but that s part of what makes it endearing.A couple of notes I listened to the first book via Audible and didn t notice the author s reluctance to use contractions I think it s mostly a stylistic choice, but it can make for some noticeably choppy reading There was also a lotof the potential romantic triangle in the second book that didn t do a whole lot for me It seems Just as fun as the first one I m going to have to go ahead and find the next book in the series Still over the top, but that s part of what makes it endearing.A couple of notes I listened to the first book via Audible and didn t notice the author s reluctance to use contractions I think it s mostly a stylistic choice, but it can make for some noticeably choppy reading There was also a lotof the potential romantic triangle in the second book that didn t do a whole lot fo...

    This is officially the first steampunk novel I have ever read and it wasn t too bad I really didn t think I would enjoy it, but after awhile it grew on me The main character Romulus Buckle, swashbuckeling captain of the Pneumatic Zeppelin is your typical James Bond, cocky, womanizing, brave, type You just have to like him although his attraction to two of his step sisters is a little odd for me This is the second in a series and it picks up immediately where the last one left off and end This is officially the first steampunk novel I have ever read and it wasn t too bad I really didn t think I would enjoy it, but after awhile it grew on me The main character Romulus Buckle, swashbuckeling captain of the Pneumatic Zeppelin is your typical James Bond, cocky, womanizing, brave, type You just have to like him although his attraction to two of his step sisters is a little odd for me This is the second in a series and it picks up immediately where the last one left off and ends in such a cliffhanger that you re stuck waiting for the next installment I m not sure how many are in the series but this book sets it up for a major war against the founders The whole point of this book is uniting all the warring clans together to fight a common enemy, the Founders It s super fast paced I m fairly positive that Buckle did not sleep once during the entire b...
