Review

"Avalon Revisited, by O. M. Grey, is a delightful combination of historical fiction, romance and steampunk...This book is cleverly written with enough humor to take the edge off of the sadness." --True-blood.net

"this intriguing novel engages the reader's interest...[with] witty dialogue, historical authenticity, and mystery result in a highly entertaining novel, ensuring that the reader turns the pages as quickly as possible." --Bitten by Books

"Fans of Gail Carriger will LOVE Avalon Revisited. Steamy scenes, plot twists, intriguing characters, and of course fabulous gadgets and a most impressive airship make for a phenomenal Steampunk adventure!" --Old Towne Books & Tea

From the Back Cover

Arthur Tudor has made his existence as a vampire bearable for over three hundred years by immersing himself in blood and debauchery. Aboard an airship gala, he meets Avalon, an aspiring vampire slayer who sparks fire into Arthur's shriveled heart. Together they try to solve the mystery of several horrendous murders on the dark streets of London. Cultures clash and pressures rise in this sexy Steampunk Romance.

More About the Author

Nestled in the mountains of Northern California, Olivia M. Grey lives in the cobwebbed corners of her mind writing paranormal romance with a Steampunk twist. She dreams of the dark streets of London and the decadent deeds that occur after sunset. As an author of Steamy Steampunk, as well as a poet, blogger, podcaster, and speaker, Olivia focuses both her poetry and prose on alternative relationship lifestyles and deliciously dark matters of the heart and soul. Her work has been published in various anthologies and magazines like Stories in the Ether, Steampunk Adventures, SNM Horror Magazine and How The West Was Wicked.

Her premiere Steampunk erotica novel, Avalon Revisited, is an Amazon.com Gothic Romance bestseller. The sequel, of sorts, Avalon Revamped challenges the notion of happily-ever-after in a Steampunk Romantic Horror novel about retribution, redemption, and true justice. She also has two other titles available: The Zombies of Mesmer, a YA Steampunk Romance, and Caught in the Cogs: An Eclectic Collection of short stories, love poetry, and relationship essays.

Ms. Grey, now a cover model for Gearhearts Steampunk Glamour Revue, has seen quite the upswing in popularity over the past few years. Her poem "New York Rain" not only won an award for best poem, but it also made the Bar None Group's Hall of Fame. Her short story "Dust on the Davenport," written for Tales of the Archives, as well as her bestselling Steamy Steampunk novel Avalon Revisited, won the 2012 Steampunk Chronicle's Reader's Choice Award for best short story and best novel, respectively. Olivia was voted "Muse of the Fair" at the 2011 Steampunk World's Fair and has enjoyed being a special literary guest at Steampunk Conventions, like Clockwork Con, Aetherfest, HRM Steampunk Symposium, Florida Steampunk Exhibition East, among many others.

Ms. Grey dons a tight corset, fluffy bustle, and a teeny-tiny top hat for fantasy and sex-positive conventions where she presents controversial topics, interacts with fans, and participates on panels discussing fiction, writing, steampunk, mental illness and emotional insecurities, sexual health and safety, and relationship styles and tools, just to name a few. She loves to host tea parties, and she runs a delightful game of charades, Victorian style.

Didn't know if I would like this story, but once I started it I couldn't put it down. Was fabulous and hot. If you like steampunk and vampires you are going to love this story.

I read the Kindle version of this over 2 days during Christmas break and I was instantly hooked. The first chapter really had my attention. I liked the historical context, the mystery, the romance. This book really had it all. I tend to like more SciFi reads, but the author made this book very accessible. I liked her twist on vampire mythology, I liked the naughty bits, and I especially liked. There really was nothing I didn't like in this book. It was a delight.

I will be brutally honest in this review. I read one chapter a night to begin... the chapters are not long by any measure, I was not in the right mindset when this book became available to me. I put it down after the 5th chapter and waited two weeks to pick back up. Good thing I chose Friday night to begin anew because I started from the beginning and the characters had much more life and before you knew it I was sitting on my couch in the early hours of Saturday with a finished book in my hand.

Very good read, maybe allow yourself privacy for the wide range of facial expressions needed to absorb completely what these characters are feeling. You'll grin that devilish grin A LOT!

Format: Paperback
Avalon Revisited (Blue Moose Press 2010) by Olivia M. Grey was my first introduction to Steampunk fiction, a genre blending science fiction, fantasy, history, horror, Victorian, and speculative fiction. Since I met Ms. Grey, I've been introduced to this new and intriguing subculture, traversing the world-form the wilds of London to the mayhem and extremity of the Burning Man.

Carefully researched, Ms. Grey's writing style kept me intrigued until the very end. I was able to walk with the characters through cold nights "full of murder and monsters" ( (81). The protagonist, Arthur, a vampire, is both the subject and narrator. He is by his own admission a man who "wasn't polite company" (7). He meets Avalon, a dark-haired beauty who obsesses and distracts him. She is quite complicated and you're never sure about how his pursuit of her will go until the very end because of a key conflict: He is a vampire and she a vampire hunter. He says, "Of all the women I've had in my time, I fall in love with a vampire hunter. Of course" (86). Though he knows his obsession of Avalon is self-destructive, he says, "This was love. This agony. This suffering. This sinking feeling in my chest. Feeling unable to live without her. Knowing I could not live without her. Knowing I would do anything for her, even if it led to my own ruin, for I was nothing without her" (187).

At no point did I lose interest in this sexy, vampire tale, and at no point did I feel I left Victorian England, in spite of the anachronisms associated with Steampunk fiction. I highly recommend this novel. It's not your typical vampire read, and the skilled craft of O. M. Grey will keep you reading till the very end. You may even be motivated to show up at a Steampunk conference or read more in this genre. You can read more about Olivia Grey here (O.M. Grey is a pen name for Christine Rose): [...] Olivia Grey's blog is [...]

Format: Paperback
Avalon Revisited has strong paranormal and romance elements with a dash of Steampunk thrown in for good measure. Set in Victorian England, it tells the story of a 300-year old vampire and the woman who captures his fancy, touching his cold, dead heart after centuries of ennui. The bad news for him? She's also a vampire hunter on the trail of several recent, mysterious murders. Our hero had nothing to do with those - or did he?

The book is well paced, has a few solid action scenes, and some rather adult content in several places. It is not without flaws, but these are generally minor - a typo here and there or the occasional stray word - things I find easily forgivable, particularly from small press titles. I enjoyed this book a great deal. I'm usually slow at reading books, but I whipped through this in (for me) a relatively short time.

I purchased this book at the Ingelside Tx, Fair. I talked with her husband and decided to purchase some books from their stand. The cover of this one caught my eye, and the first chapter hooked me in.. I loved this book, I could not put it down. I would love to see if she writes a second one, about Arthurs new life with love in it.. Perhaps he can go on new adventures, fighting evil...

Thank you, for this book, I was lost in it, what a blessing to have an original story, set with such wonderful history...

Great Job!!! Waiting, for more, Bring it on, women!!!

I actually won a copy of this, through an on-line contest.

It's interesting, I like it. If you like steampunk or vampires, then burn those Twilight saga books & give this a go.
