As always, Jorgensen’s characters are complex and well-crafted. Though I’d already spent much time with Immanuel and Emmeline in previous novels, Jorgensen still manages to reveal more about them through the obstacles they face in Dead Magic. It was deeply gratifying to see Immanuel start to heal and watch his relationship with Adam Fenice grow. Likewise, I appreciated that Emmeline remained her headstrong self, even when her stubbornness lead her astray.
Despite being separated by Immanuel and Emmeline’s perspectives, the plot of Dead Magic perfectly weaves together. The story contains a perfect balance of physical action, magical action, romance, and introspection. While I can’t say any of the events were huge surprises, the story held my interest from the start, and I enjoyed every page. With each novel, Jorgensen’s deft skill with words deepens. She has a great ability to write in a way that is both clear and lyrical.
Overall, Dead Magic is a wonderful addition to the Ingenious Mechanical Devices series. I feel like every time I read one of these novels, I pronounce the latest installation my favorite, but I have to do it again here — the series just keeps getting better and better! Highly recommended for readers who enjoy steampunk, Victorian era London, historical/dark fantasy and a dash of steamy romance.
As with previous books in this series, I thought the entire cast was splendidly portrayed. In Dead Magic, though, Kara Jorgensen has gone above and beyond in creating characters with depth and nuance. By the end of the book, there wasn't a single character I didn't like—not even the main villain, Claudia Rose. It ended up very conflicting, considering half of the cast was constantly at odds with the other. While there is at least one character's fate I will never quite forgive Kara Jorgensen for, I applaud the author's skill for making me care so much about them.
Beyond the characters and plot, there were also so many little details that I loved about this story. The academic squabbling at the museum. The power games at the Spiritualist Society. The magic-worldbuilding. And, of course, the most adorable resurrection of all time.
It saddens me that this book is over. My consolation lies in the fact that the next book in the series has just been released, and so I won't need to wait long to find out what happens next!
The plot twists keep you involved, I particularly liked the introduction of the cat....you'll have to read the book to see why!
Looking forward to the next book!
