I love this steampunk genre. The gadgets are so creative, and the author's world in The Iron Duke is one of a kind. I enjoyed the pirate thing she had going...made me think of Mr. Johnny Depp. The cover does nothing for this story. It has suspense, action, romance (plenty of ooh-la-la moments), mystery, and even a HEA. My favorite characters were Newberry, and Captain Corsair.
