Phoenix Rising (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, #1)
Jun 26, 2012
I loved this book! The two main characters, Eliza Braun and Wellington Books, reminded me a little of Irene Adler and John Watson joining forces in order to do good ;). Eliza is a spunky, adventurous member of England's Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences who has a fearless approach to any challenge and often brings along an interesting collection of weapons and gadgets to help her along. Wellington considers himself an upper-class gentleman who prefers working in the basement of the Ministry, far away from the hullabaloo of field agent work, where he can enjoy a nice pot of tea and use his marvelous invention to help him keep the Archives in order. When Eliza fails to follow orders, she and Books are thrown together as unlikely partners, and when they uncover a malicious group that is out to cause mayhem and murder, it will take the pair of them to bring an end to England's newest enemy. If you enjoy steampunk, adventure, and wonderful character development, then do yourself a favor and give Phoenix Rising a read.
