Shannon (Giraffe Days) Great review Erika! Steampunk with zombies - zombies aren't my thing (what could be more boring, really, than a lump of flesh trying to eat you?) but this seems like such an interesting take. And it's alternate history too? I enjoy those - like Farthing and His Majesty's Dragon - plus "menacing bad guy"? Sold!

Thank you!

I'm not a zombie fan. Until this book, it never crossed my mind to read a book with zombies, but it was all done in the spirit of the book that I couldn't help but think, "hey, this actually works.."

P.S. I love Naomi Novik's Temeraire books! :)

I've only read the first one but it was one of those rare books where I loved the dragon characters much more than the human ones. Though Temeraire's human was a nice man ;)

Laurence is a sweetie! I recommend reading the other 4, she's been working on the 6th right now. They're all really worth the effort. :)


Shannon (Giraffe Days) Laurence! I couldn't remember his name *eee!*

Jason Pettus I think the reason that Jeremiah's dialogue is italicized is because he's the only one with an artificial amplifier in his metal gas-mask. I think it's meant to connote that his voice comes out in a tinny yet loud way, versus the muffled natural voices of the people in regular rubber gas-masks.

That's very helpful, thank you for pointing that out! I was confused since he wasn't the only one with a mask on and I assumed the italics were to denote when he spoke with the mask, but then no one else had italics... Thank you so much. :)
