This is a PNR with steampunk overtures in it. Fans of Kristen Callihan's Darkest London will enjoy this one. Honoria Todd is a woman who life has dealt a cruddy hand; she's tasked with providing for her two younger siblings while hiding out under a pseudonym for a madman wants what her father left behind; journals that may possess the cure to a disease he has. Enter Blade, a Blue Blood (controlled blood sucker) who rules the rookeries (the less desirable parts of London). With his tragic past and scary persona he's the perfect person to give Honoria the protection she needs.
The story is fun and quick to read, but it plays out like a PNR. The world is run on little steam and the people are enhanced by technology. Since the emphasis is on Honoria's relationship with Blade I cannot dub it a steampunk, but it is a delightful read.
3 Stars.
