Review: A Lady Can Never Be Too Curious (Steam Guardians #1) by Mary Wine

August 10, 2012 Review 6

After struggling with The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series all week, I am coming to the realization that I like steampunk more as a flavor added to other story lines than as a genre all on its lonesome. Gail Carringer’s gorgeous Parasol Protectorate series mixes steampunk with fantasy and regency romance, Meljean Brook’s Iron Seas series is almost indefinable with the gritty mix of apocalypse, technology, and history, and my expectations were high as A LADY CAN NEVER BE TOO CURIOUS started out as light, fun, historical romance with familiar class boundaries being drawn along fanciful technological lines.
