A 3.5 really, in which we’re away from the Seattle of the first book and out into the wider world in the company of Captain Hainey, who we met briefly in Boneshaker.

Captain Hainey is a pirate, a former slave and now captain of the Free Crow, a warship that he liberated years previously which has now been liberated from him (and renamed the Clementine). His pursuit of the stolen bird has caught the attention of some powerful people and so his path must cross with that of Marie ‘Belle’ Boyd, famous ex-Confederate spy and now agent for the Pinkertons.

Much shorter than its predecessor, even minus the rotters this was a rollicking good adventure that I tore through in no time – I loved the snappy dialogue and furious pace, and actually found the storyline itself preferable to that in Boneshaker. I’d still have liked a little more depth, but this is great fun nonetheless.

Oh, and just one more thing – I love having books where the heroines are capable women long past their teenage years.
