Buffalo Soldier is a Steampunk novel with a Jamaican protagonist which (I believe) is completely unique. Reading words like "raassclaat" after a wild-west style shootout in a saloon or the main character Desmond craving Ackee & Saltfish after he took a ride on a mechanical horse made this book unlike anything I have ever read before!

Desmond is tasked with protecting a very special little boy called Lij Tafari and the story is about how they try to make thier journey to safety.

I really admire the author's imagination, the only problem was how short this story was; I was desperate to know more about Lij but I never actually got that information.
