    I ve always loved fairy tales and the twists that Nancy Campbell Allen adds to them are phenomenal Rapunzel, Steampunk style, had me on the edge of my seat In fact, I couldn t put it down and read it all in one day.Hazel is a healer, of sorts, and assists a cutting edge surgeon, Sam, with his work I loved those medical aspects, as they really showed the teamwork and foundation necessary for a solid relationship When Hazel leaves with her uncle to go find her sister, Sam and his automaton bot , Eugene, tag along, despite fears and misgivings The dark overtones complemented the complexity of this mysterious and dangerous tale and I was captivated with the imaginative elements, twists and turns, and fantastic characters Eugene almost stole the show with his robotic sarcasm and wit The secrets unraveled to reveal a wonderfully intense climax and I just couldn t get enough Of course, I adored the budding romance, which only served to add to the deliciously satisfying layers of entertainment This is definitely a story you won t want to miss Content mild romance mild violence moments of peril I received a complimentary copy All opinions expressed are my own and were voluntarily given.

I love this series I have been curious about Hazel and Sam since first meeting them in Beauty and the Clockwork Beast There was just something about these two that called to me Hazel and Sam were perfectly matched She was the yin to his yang Working together, they could anything and overcome whatever was thrown their way I quickly fell in love with these two and found myself rooting for them from the very beginning You guys I m not going to lie I couldn t devour their story fast enough Once I started this book, I could not put it down It was intense, mysterious, swoony, and all around amazing When I got to the end, I found myself going back to the beginning to read it all over again I love when a book grabs me like that It s the sign of a fabulous author I m definitely looking forward to the next book in this series And can we take a minute to admire these two I absolutely love them as Hazel and Sam What do you think I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are solely my own.

    Smiling I am smiling as I finish this book I love a book that satisfies my desire for a good story This book had characters that I couldn t help but like It had mystery, conflict, and romance.Hazel grew up thinking that she was an only child She is smart, inquisitive, and proficient at her job She is a healer working with Dr Sam MacInnes She has admired him for a long time and is pleased when he offers to accompany her on a journey to find the sister that she just found out she had Her Uncle is shrouded in mystery There is something that isn t quite right about him Having Sam with her adds a level of comfort.The mystery surrounding her Uncle is well written I couldn t quite piece together all of the clues and figure out what he was about for most of the book Hazel s sister, Marit, is introduced as snippets in Hazel s dreams Hazel knows there is something wrong with her sister s situation and is determined to free and heal her broken mind.This book has everything that I enjoy I loved the Steampunk and paranormal aspect of the book It was present without being overwhelming Nancy Campbell Allen does a wonderful job at giving the right amount of information in increments to keep the interest of the readerThis book contains non graphic violence and kissing.Source I received a complimentary copy of the book All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

    The author does a wonderful job drawing the reader into the world of fantasy fairy tale retelling and steampunk with realistically grounded characters and a mystery to solve Unrequited love that is secretly not unrequited is one of my favorite tropes and I really enjoyed the developing romance between Hazel and Sam with the tension that holds them back all the while falling in love with each other There is a darkness to the suspense as they follow the dubious Romanian uncle to Hazel s sister, and I was anxious to see how they would rescue her Such creative world building Characters and situations from the previous two books are referred to and while I had read the second book in the series, I wish that I had read the first one also, so I would recommend reading them in order for full enjoyment It definitely works as a standalone though I received a complimentary copy of the book all opinions in this review are my own

    I have read the other two previous books in this series and felt it helped understand the characters and the world That said, it can be read as a standalone, especially if the reader is used to steampunk dieselpunk fiction This story is a mashup of than one fairy tale, as well as some vampire lore and even a Jules Vernes flair in the mode of transportation The worldbuilding continues setting itself apart, just as the previous novels, and this series would make an excellent one for TV or movies Hazel and Sam work together and they re attracted to each other but have not acted on their feelings for various reasons, mainly social expectations When Hazel meets a man who claims to be her uncle and tells her she has a twin sister who is sick, she s not completely surprised to find out about her twin She accepts the invitation to travel with the man and Sam offers to accompany her I liked how Sam and Hazel worried about each other and put each other s welfare ahead of their own Looking forward to the next story in the series.I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.

    I read this to get a taste of steam punk and it was an enjoyable read Definitely different from my typical genre, but it was good to read this book that was part historical fiction and part futuristic dystopian I wish that I had read the other two previous books before reading, so that I could grasp the characters but it does read as a stand alone book also Thank you netgalley for this free digital copy All thoughts are my own

    Ok, the very first thing I have to say about this book isEugene I ve decided that I need a Eugene in my life Now I have you wondering who Eugene is don t I smirks Eugene is the best Perfect timing, every time Humorous, efficient, friendly, a little oblivious, understands sarcasm, impeccable taste in clothing, smart, loyal to a fault , and a very humble hmmmmm maybe not very but a little bit automaton I love Eugene He just made me so happy I giggled every time he was in a scene His comments were hilarious Honestly, I think you ll really want to have a Eugene in your life too once you meet him and read this book The scene where he is waiting in the car in the rain wiping tears from eyes while laughing.I am most definitely a fan of Nancy Campbell Allen s writings She weaves together stories and characters that I can t help but adore or abhor depending on good or bad The mystery, the character growth, the friendships, the settings, the descriptions of the steampunk world, the sweet romance Oh my All great aspects that combined together make a great read If you haven t read any other books in this series, I would really recommend you read them in order because they re great and build up the world that the author has created in the Steampunk genre But if you haven t read the other two, this one was written in a way that I think you d be fine jumping in and reading as a stand alone.This series has some elements of paranormal, fantasy creatures, fairytale retellings and of course Steampunk If you re not sure if you enjoy those elements take a chance and see what you think If you re not a fan, then you will probably want to skip this one It s not my go to genre but I have really enjoyed each of these books that I instantly grab them If you re looking for another option for a steampunk series to enjoy, I highly recommend Colleen Gleason s Stoker and Holmes series It combines Sherlock Holmes and Bram Stoker s, Dracula, together The characters are Sherlock Holmes niece and Bram Stoker s sister fictional characters of course The Clockwork ScarabI think the synopsis does a great job of telling you what s in the story so I m not really delving into that in my review I loved Hazel and Sam and was turning the pages quickly to try to unravel the mystery right along with them And Eugene too, of course I can t forget Eugene I loved how the author used Rapunzel as the inspiration for this book Very fun And that Coppergate Towerbeware Oh, and also, don t fall asleep Those dreams Hazel is having, they can be very dangerous So when you read this one, read it quickly, one sitting I know, I didn t I tried, I really did Life, school year starting and pure exhaustion dictated that I couldn t read it straight through But it was a nail biter for an endingI was reading it before I fell asleep and couldn t turn the pages fast enough Now, the question I have is thisNancy Allen Campbell will we readers be seeing of these characters Will there be another book in this series I really have my fingers crossed for Oliver and Emme.just saying smirks Thanks for a fun series and a fun Steampunk world to escape to during my reading time Content Clean Some mild scenes of peril and violence but nothing overly graphic Some kissing but nothing further I received a copy from the publisher, Shadow Mountain Publishing, via NetGalley All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own.Happy Reading

    3.5 stars Blog Twitter Instagram Review also found here in participation of the blog tour As always, a copy of this book was provided by the publisher or author in exchange for participating in the blog tour my honest review This does not effect my opinion in any way Retellings can always be a bit of a mixed bag Especially retellings that bend genres I think that my personal favourites, when it comes to re imaginings, are the ones that full on embrace new tropes or genre types Which is why The Lady in the Coppergate Tower was so intriguing to me described as part dystopian, part Steampunk from the start This proper romance felt like the right fit, due to its uniqueness.The good news is, it definitely lived up to my expectations of it The Lady in the Coppergate Tower is lush and unlike any of the retellings I ve read in 2019 thus far Deeply imaginative, high paced and utterly captivating, I was unable to put this book down Nancy Campbell Allen pens a classic romance that will surely leave its audience on the edge of their seat and with a lasting fondness.Mixed with a mesmerizing amount of worldbuilding, mythology and familiar steampunk elements, The Lady in the Coppergate Tower is a dazzling and romantic romp of its own caliber Pages into it, readers will be able to visualize everything in Nancy Campbell Allen s vivid prose This novel is certainly for the romantic at heart.If you love love, if you love fantasy, if you love fairy tales, The Lady in the Coppergate Tower will be engrossing as can be for you Although there were some things in it that I wasn t keen on nothing worth noting in the review, because my feelings towards it are positive during the novel, it proved to be entertaining and I genuinely had a good time reading it Up until The Lady in the Coppergate Tower, I d not familiarized myself with the series it originates from It can be, after all, read as a standalone Although now, I certainly have it on my TBR and will gladly be picking up novels by the author in the future.

    I think the thing I like most about this book and the others in this series is that it feels different to me When I start reading, I know I will get a story that isn t like all the others The light steampunk feel is fun and I love the creativity is allows the author to build up a world unlike the one I know While this book is based on Rapunzel, it really doesn t feel that way at all, which also makes me happy This book has mystery, danger and a growing intensity that I really felt The darkness sort of hovered around everywhere, waiting to jump at me It gave the story a bit of edge that I really liked Sam and Hazel are two intelligent, even tempered people They suit each other very well in their professions and as people falling in love I loved being right there with them as they research, learn and put all the clues together I think what I most appreciated was that even though they were smart, it was their intuition that they followed Those gut feelings should never be ignored Oh And I cannot forget Eugene He was definitely the comedic relief in this story He kept things entertaining and light which was a much needed balance to the heavier feel to other parts of the story.Overall, this was a fun story I always love reading books by this author and can t wait to see what comes next Content dark magic, death, mild violence, kissing I received a complimentary copy of this book All opinions expressed are my own.
