Read from October 12 to 14, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 1

This book is actually light on the steampunk aspects, and focuses more on the paranormal aspects, but since I love paranormal romance/UF and historicals, this worked just fine for me. If you're looking for more steampunk, then you may be disappointed.

I've pretty much loved vampires in all their incarnations since I was a small child. But, it can get tiring reading the same thing time after time after time. Thankfully, Ms. McMaster came up with an interesting take on vampire lore that I found very engaging and set it all in an AU Victorian England.

The two leads, Honoria and Blade (and believe me, I was a little dubious when I read that name), are very likeable and it was a treat to watch them slowly fall in love and work past their obstacles and prejudices.

The side characters (Honoria's siblings and Blade's crew) were also enjoyable, though, I can see the way it's setting up to be (view spoiler).

I will definitely be reading the next in the series when it's released next year.
