“A Study in Silks” – Steampunk Meets Regency Meets Sherlock Holmes

11 Jun

I have to say, the title of this book fails to convey the delicious mash-up of genres that delivers a compelling world, characters and story! I thought it would be another Regency romance – which it is, a bit. Then it quickly became clear we were in the alternate reality that is Steampunk, with a fabulous heroine who is not only Sherlock Holmes’ niece, but grew up in a circus, and has magical abilities. If that all sounds weird, it isn’t.  Nicely written, fast paced, interesting characters all set against the politics of a world driven by the “steam barons” who control who has access to power – literally. Super enjoyed this – can’t wait for the rest of the series!  Highly recommend!
