Book Title: Steamed
Book Author: Katie MacAlister
Rating: 5 Dragon Paws
I read this book because it was chosen in my Facebook book club group. Our leader chose well.
The cover is great! Eye catchy. ^_^ There’s so much more to the Captain that meets the eye, especially the thing that we find out at the end of the book. You have to read till the end. I had to put the book down a couple of times because in a way, it reads slow, but the story is interesting.
It was a first time for me to read steampunk, maybe second. I’m not sure. This is a story where siblings land in another world, a world that is very similar to theirs, same year, similar countries, same language but everything runs on asther and steam. There’s a glossary at the end of the book.
This book made me think about about possibilities of similar worlds to our own. Of how they be able to communicate similarly or differently. Of how they would dress. Jack seemed to be in love with the idea of goggles and Olivia kept saying he was crazy. It was entertaining to read.
I think my favorite character was Mr. Llama. I wondered on more than one occasion about him just like Octavia. I think it would have been interesting to hear more of what happened to Hallie. This book ends on a good note but with a hint of a cliffhanger. This will be one of the few books where I would be interested in reading book 2.
