She has at various times worked as a librarian, IT support person and technical writer but in her heart has always been a fiction writer. She has won and placed in romance writing contests including winning RWAustralia's Emerald Award in 2008 for the manuscript that went on to be released under the title HONOR BOUND. C.J. spent her early childhood in the dramatic beauty of outback Queensland, Australia, but now lives in suburban Melbourne with her husband and two children.

The Adventures of Miss Upton and the Sky Pirate is a swashbuckling romatic adventure in a steampunk Victorian England. Matilda Upton (Tilda) has some magical talent in an England that shuns and fears magic after an attempt on the life of the queen. She is discovered by Sir Magnus Grimshaw, Chief Royal Inventor, and blackmailed into using her skills to kidnap an Oriental inventor. She manages to convince the notorious pirate Black Jack Knight to assist her, and they are off on a round-the-world airship adventure.

The steampunk setting is well-established early, from the cover images, title and opening line. Perhaps a little too well-established - after a while it feels like being hit over the head with those brass and leather goggles. But there is certainly attention to detail in the worldbuilding. Archer has remembered the little things that add verisimilitude to a setting - a pet that is live instead of clockwork and a problematic air filtration system become plot devices instead of mere background detail.

One gripe I have is the use of the word "hellhag" to mean witch or magic-user. It's the only instance of smeerps in the novel and I really can't see any reason for it. The term witch was used long before the Victorian age; according to Wikipedia it [derives from the Old English nouns wicca "sorcerer, wizard" and wicce "sorceress, witch"] and [The modern spelling witch with the medial 't' first appears in the 16th century], so it should have been in regular usage even in an alternate steampunk Victorian England.

The plot is solid with equal attention to both the adventure and romance plots, however it reads more like a romance novel than an adventure.

I wanted to like this book, really I did. The plot synopsis was intriguing, and the setting had a lot of promise. Unfortunately, with that statement, I've run out of positive comments about the book. The writing was immature, and characterization was erratic at best. An editor might have helped, for example, by preventing the repeated use of "in tact" for "intact", though I did laugh at a statement about the heroine's virtue remaining in tact! Verb tenses wandered around in time, sometimes within a single sentence. The dialog was stilted, to put it mildly. Motivations were obscure or absurd, by turns. The sex scenes were thrown in at random. There was a good story in there somewhere, but it was buried in poor writing and fuzzy plotting.

I've never read a "Steampunk" novel before and wasn't really sure what to expect. This new author has really caught my interest. She develops her characters - and they are certainly characters - very well.paranormal historical and romance al rolled into one. I'll be reading more of her books.

I'm totally in after a few paragraphs, cannot put it down, completely engrossed and sad when it ended. I want more of Matilda , Jack and the rest of these well thought out characters and superbly written story. Thank you you again C.J. Archer.
