Early Review: Heart of Iron (London Steampunk, #2) by Bec McMaster

Early Review: Heart of Iron (London Steampunk, #2) by Bec McMaster

HEART OF IRON is a fun steampunk story with a plethora of political dealings both with other countries and high society. There is a unique take in this story on women vying for a husband/suitor by going to balls like in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Except vampires take the place of Mr. Darcy and the debutantes are vying to be blood donors in order to have a life of privilege and wealth.While I loved the ideas and world building in HEART OF IRON I couldn’t connect with either Will or Lena.

An adventure of the purest form, EMILIE AND THE HOLLOW WORLD has stowaways, mysterious lands, foreign strangers, saboteurs, and intrigue, all flavored with just the right amount of magical steampunk technology. Though the pacing was choppy in the first few chapters, alternating between action and large chunks of exposition, once Emilie finds her place on this crew of adventurers and scientists, the story takes off.

Series enders are challenging because readers expect not just a fresh story and character resolutions, but also answers to every question they’ve asked over the course of The Infernal Devices trilogy. At well over five hundred pages, CLOCKWORK PRINCESS is a large book, which is fitting since it tells not just a large story, but one that satisfies all the demands that the legion of fans this series has garnered have placed on it.
