I love joining the author's characters once again. Not only are they enjoyable since the story is told from multiple perspectives the reader really gets to know each one in this addition. Not only the good guys, but the not so good ones as well. Yes, sometimes their accents get a bit thick, but they really add to the whole essence of the story.
Again, as I said in my previous review, I really enjoy the way that the books never take themselves too seriously. From the author's amusing alliteration to the hilarious characters and their nod to historical and pop culture figures. There's never a page that doesn't make me at least smile if not laugh out loud. There was even one character nod that I didn't get until the last pages of the book. It's that well worked into the book that once I finally realized it I couldn't believe I hadn't seen it before! I won't give more of a spoiler than that.
Yes, the author also does an amazingly detailed job of describing his characters inventions, but he does it in such a way that it isn't overly thick. The creations themselves, even when complicated, end up being fun. So if you aren't overly technically inclined that you will get lost.
The stories in this series are a great step into an alternate reality that is enjoyable and entertaining. In a Latitude of Temperance is another great voyage. If you've read Temperance's previous novels and enjoyed them I definitely think you will enjoy this one. If you haven't...Why the heck not? Get a move on! If you enjoy steampunk, comedy, adventure this is the series for you!
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
Oh, Ichy… Ichy, Ichabod, Ichy…
This wasn’t really my favorite book of the series, I’m afraid. While it was still a fun and lunatic romp through the steampunk realm and full of inside jokes, as well as a lot of alliteration and crazy excitement, there was one big problem for me.
There wasn’t enough Ichabod.
I love the namesake character of the series. Ichabod Temperance is a fun character, adorable and endearing, and what made the first books so much fun. And while he was part of the adventure–he was there–I would estimate…80% maybe of the chapter narrators were everyone but Ichabod and Persephone. And even in those, it felt like we didn’t see as much of him. We saw more of Persephone through the eyes of others.
I want my Ichabod back! My unsophisticated, ‘bama boy jetting around England and elsewhere making funny inventions and swooning over Ms. Plumtartt. While all the rest is fun and funny, it’s just not a real Ichabod adventure without, you know, more Ichabod.
Otherwise, the accents of the exposition make the book kind of hard to read in parts, but more chapters from the perspectives of Ichabod and Persephone would fix that. I don’t have any complaints beyond that, and since I still like this series better than most, I still give it a 4 Fireballs. I do hope to see more Ichabod in the next book, though!
