All I have to say is that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this historical steampunk trilogy!

Rafe is a quasi-antihero, really only wanting to live his life in peace, unencumbered by responsibility except for his own person and his lover Ned. However, life often never complies, and he finds himself the heir apparent to an important political house that supports the Royal family and helps govern Britain. Having never catered to house politics, he finds himself smack dab in the middle

This was a fun addition to a favorite steampunkish historical fantasy series. Rafe, coffee shop owner and aeroship pilot, is a great POV character, with his dry humor and independent attitude. Here we see him more than a year on from the end of book 2, settling in to his new role in his House, and his new interactions with family. Ned is still the hidden center of Rafe's world, but as the next season for Ned's archaeological dig in Aegypt approaches, Rafe isn't free to go along. The separation ...more

I enjoyed this. I love history. Especially when you get into Greek stuff or Egyptian things. It’s all fascinating to me. But as good as this book turned out to be, it took a while for it to get there. I was 27 % in and almost was ready to call it quits, when stuff started getting really interesting. A lover has gone missing on a dig, lies are being thrown everywhere, spies and traitors are at every turn and you don’t know who to trust. And betrayals that are a slap in the face….

Review by 2shay...............

I’m smarter today than I was before starting this book. At least I’m just a little more articulate. Ms. Butler is a master of the English language. She has a way of combining seldom used words and phrases without seeming the least bit pretentious. Her dialog is snappy, witty and engaging, with descriptions so perfectly drawn that you think you’re in the room, or tent, with the characters.

As always, the author puts the reader back in Rafe Lancaster’s world

4.5 stars rounded up to 5 because...hella' good series and still no 1/2 stars here on GR. Full review to follow...really soonish!

It's Indiana Jones in steampunk Victorian era London with a touch of a gay romance...

‘The God’s Eye’ is the third, and rumor has it, final story in ‘Lancaster’s Luck’ the Victorian Era Steampunk trilogy by Anna Butler.

In ‘The Gilded Scarab’ we were introduced to Rafe Lancaster and followed his return back to civilian life after leaving the Britannic Imperium’s Aero

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.25 stars

I was quick to pick this book up, being the long awaited third in a series that I have loved. I dubbed Rafe a book boyfriend at the very beginning and that has not changed. Though I did have a few issues with this story, overall I really enjoyed it. Butler has crafted a unique and interesting steampunk world, and it continues to grow and evolve as the stories do. This is a series that definitely needs to be read in order, so only pick this one up after you’ve
"...You can’t think we’d misuse it?”
“Because we’re English gentlemen—honourable and virtuous, moral and true? Oh, Ned. Ask any nation we’ve absorbed into the Imperium. You may get an answer that shocks you.” [loc. 3723]

Third in the 'Lancaster's Luck' series that began with The Gilded Scarab and continued with The Jackal's House . This episode is less of a romance and more of a swashbuckling adventure: Rafe Lancaster and Ned Winter spend most of the first half of the book apart, Rafe learning

With so many lovely stories, choosing my favorite for the year was no easy task. But Anna Butler’s The God’s Eye is an absolute delight, and I am glad to recommend this romantic steampunk adventure, which will be published on January 21, 2020.

I’ve enjoyed the Lancaster’s Luck series and hero, Rafe Lancaster, since book 1, The Gilded Scarab. And the series kept building in intrigue and romance with The Jackal’s House. So I am happy to say that The God’s Eye certainly delivers and is my favorite

5 Stars!

I read the first two books in the series a little over 2 years ago and they were amazing, so I had high expectations for this installment and I wasn't disappointed. That said, you need to be aware that the books are better read in order for maximum enjoyment. Still, if you read them a while ago like I did, Ms. Butler was really good about inserting little flashbacks here and there that will trigger your memory.

Rafe is coming into his own as the First Heir of House Stravaigor and dealing

Highly anticipated but slightly disappointing conclusion to the Lancaster's Luck series. Rafe's first person narration is as distinctive as always - erudite, witty, dry and full of affection for his beloved Ned. And therein lay the problem for me: there's no relationship development in this book. Rafe and Ned love each other, their families either don't mind or turn a blind eye to their homosexuality, and there are no challenges. Yes, Ned disappears and they are both in danger at various points ...more

Another great offering from Ms Butler. It was interesting seeing Rafe function as a legitimate heir to a minor house (compared to the earlier books when he was being oppressed and persecuted by senior House members for failing to toe the line. Personally, my preference is for Rafe's 'black sheep' rebel persona instead of his stalwart, 'tied to duty' one. As with previous titles in the series, the author gives enough archeological / alt-world science punk details to keep my imagination humming ...more

Rafe has a hard decision to make when Ned does not home for Christmas after leaving for an important archaeological dig. Rafe is concerned on many levels. Does he stay by his dying fathers side or does he travel to discover what happened to Ned and where he is at?

I don't want to give anything away but I will say I was intrigued with Ned's fascination. The circumstances surrounding the god Thoth were amazing. I was mesmerized by the details and

To be loved the way Rafe loves Ned...
This is such a great series. The Gilded Scarab is one of my comfort re-reads and it was a delight to pick up this one.

I really hope there's more of Rafe and Ned's adventures in my future.
