Steam City Pirates by Jim Musgrave

This book being outside my usual genre which is Mystery, with sub categories of British mysteries and historical mysteries I was not sure how to review this book. As I started reading I thought it a little odd. I have only read one other Steampunk book. But the more I read it the more I enjoyed the book. The book had humans, mazikeens,rabbi's,robots, little people and all sorts of steam powered vehicles. I felt it had a good storyline and wonderfully created characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to all readers of all genres. Thanks to Net Galley.

Fire on the Water by P.J. Parker

This is a book about Rachael who is researching Mary Shelley author of Frankenstein, in order to write Mary's autobiography. Rachael was researching the time Mary spent in Montreux,Switzerland during the summer of 1816. Some very strange happenings began to go on during Marys time, but also paralleled the time Rachael was doing her research. Rachael had Mary's trunk where she kept her letters and notes for the book. During this time Rachael met Jack fell in love and then lost him in a motorcycle accident. As Rachael progresses through the letters it is almost as though she was back in Mary's time. This was a book that I could not put down, I enjoyed the back and forth between 1816 and present time. Thanks to Net Galley and the publishers for allowing me access to this wonderful book.
