This review was interesting to write, and I must say, truthfully, that I really did enjoy the novel, but there were just some parts I feel as though I couldn't help but shake by head on. Overall though, it was an enjoyable read.
I encountered this novel on NetGalley and was very excited to start reading it right away. This story seems to have it all: romance, adventure, steampunk, paranormal, I mean how could I go

Under Her Brass Corset by Brenda Williamson looked like steampunk when I picked it up from NetGalley. I mean, really, "brass corset"? What would you think?

Instead, think of it as the counterweight to Leslie Dicken's The Iron Heart, which is steampunk but doesn't explicitly say it's steampunk. Under Her Brass Corset has a title that practically screams steampunk, but is more of a historic romance with fantasy and steampunk elements. Any time im

Rating: 2.75 out of 5

The title and cover of this novel are a bit misleading. Under Her Brass Corset appears at first glance to be a steampunk novel, but in fact it is more fantasy, with a few steampunk elements. While I found the premise of the novel interesting - an immortal captain falls for the young woman he’s been watching over since childhood - I found the book to be a bit disjointed. The book isn’t badly written; it just isn’t

So, I tried to listen to this book, which might have been my big mistake. I find that I have less patience with books on audio than I do with text books. Possibly because there's no way to skim an audiobook. But, I just couldn't get into it. I didn't particularly like the heroine or the hero, nor did I feel compelled by their situation. And one thing that just pushed my buttons... Morgan Le Fey as the Lady of the Lake? Nope, not gonna work for me. Probably fine for lots of people, but it bothere ...more

I am so in love with steampunk right now!

This book was wonderful! Sweet, sexy, engaging, entertaining, terrifying, and heartwarming! I was whisked away to a world of immortality, flying boats, and a love story 20 years in the making. As I have expressed in previous reviews, I am forever in love with a book if I feel a part of the story, if the author can pull me into the world they are creating. Under Her Brass Corset and Brenda Williamson have done that, in spades!

Abigail Thatch is a "familyles

This is the first book I have received from Yay! Thank you Carina Press for letting me read this book ahead of the publication date! It is actually being published today, February 27, 2012 so if you are interested it is available in ebook format.
I requested to read this book because of its Steampunk leanings. I haven't read any Steampunk (except for Soulless, which was great) and I was excited to try some. What I didn't realize but quickly understood is that this story was a roman

It's been too long since I've posted a review here, thanks to my dissertation (now almost done!), but I've finally managed to sneak in some time to read. My choice: Under Her Brass Corset by Brenda Williamson. I was in the mood for some steampunk romance and thought this would fit the bill. In some ways it does, but in others it was not at all what I expected.When I read the cover copy, I expected Under Her Brass Corsetto be a fun adventure. I didn't expect pirates. And it's mostly about pirates ...more
There are parts of Under Her Brass Corset that were really fun, it starts out as a rollicking adventure with a roguish immortal air ship captain who is trying hard not to fall for the woman whose family he's secretly watched over for longer than her lifetime. I liked the immortal who struggles to protect himself from getting attached and walk away from the heroine and thought it was great when she boards his ship looking to retrieve something he took from her that she believes is her property, a ...more
The Novel Strumpet
The biggest issues I had with this story was that 1) Just because you have flying ships and brass corsets, you are not a steampunk novel and 2) There is no way a Victorian lady of any class who cared about not having to work as a prostitute the rest of her life would get a tattoo or travel on a ship across the Atlantic ocean alone with a man. I don't care how great her thirst for adventure. Getting past those issues, it was actually a good Fantasy novella.
