The Iron Duke
After years of reading epic fantasy, the Iron Duke was my first introduction to the steampunk genre. All I can say is "wow!" Meljean Brook capably integrates a sci-fi fantasy that holds it's own with a gritty-at-times erotic element. I look forward to reading more by this talented writer!
Steamy Steampunk, Well-Built World
Wow. Lots of action and intrigue, solid believable conflicts (including the romance). Intense without being overly grim. Mina is a strong heroine and Rhy a to-die-for hero. Great story from start to finish, hard to put down.
Excellent Steampunk Romance
Brooks has crafted an incredibly detailed world populated by passionate, engaging characters. Rarely am I pulled into a novel as completely as I was pulled into The Iron Duke. My only complaint is that the big sea battle to destroy the ultimate weapon sent against England takes place *off panel*. Disappointing. But I will definitely be reading any other stories that Brook sets in this universe.
