Despite the airships, trolleys, and newspapers, this book feels far more like traditional humorous fantasy than steampunk. The magic system, which relies heavily on math, is one of the few I've ever seen that actually sounds difficult to master, rath ...more

This is quite a good retelling of "Beauty and the Beast." The explanations for the beast's transformation and the magic of the house are a good deal more sinister and (and also original) than most. Rather than being a traditional romance, the story b ...more

"Bluebeard" is a rather odd fairy tale, and most of the attempted retellings I've seen just don't work very well. This book is a very welcome exception. It succeeds in large part because the author isn't afraid to take a very different path: having s ...more

When I picked this up, I was worried that the two years since I'd read the first book would leave me lost and confused. Happily, there were enough reminders to jog my memory. I really appreciate that in a series. Also happily, this book was as much r ...more

This book felt more like a Thomas Hardy novel than a Jane Austen novel. And that's not really meant as a compliment, considering that I threw Tess of the D'Urbervilles across the room when I finished it. But the story is certainly compelling, even th ...more

D.L.  Carter
“Bio D.L. Carter was decanted from her incubation pod in the outback of Australia many decades ago. This terrifying event was closely followed by shrieks of "There, there it goes, under the chair. Hit it with a brick!" These valiant attempts to correct the existence of D.L. were, unfortunately, unsuccessful and she now resides in New Jersey, U.S., in a box with her toys, two human beings, and three cats.”
D.L. Carter, Ridiculous

J.R.R. Tolkien
“And suddenly first one and then another began to sing as they played, deep-throated singing of the dwarves in the deep places of their ancient homes; and this is like a fragment of their song, if it can be like their song without their music. [...]As they sang the hobbit felt the love of beautiful things made by hands and by cunning and by magic moving through him, a fierce and jealous love, the desire of the hearts of dwarves. Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick. He looked out of the window. The stars were out in a dark sky above the trees. He thought of the jewels of the dwarves shining in dark caverns. Suddenly in the wood beyond The Water a flame leapt up - probably somebody lighting a wood-fire-and he thought of plundering dragons settling on his quiet Hill and kindling it all to flames. He shuddered; and very quickly he was plain Mr. Baggins of Bag-End, Under-Hill, again. He got up trembling.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
