For the Love of Temperance is book 3 in the Temperance series. I like the cover. It reminds me of a vintage school book I'd used to have. The paisley blood-red pattern fitting as background for the bloodthirsty aliens from Mars. In fact, each cover is similar in the use of a paisley background, the color changing along with the picture, yet similar in format, which would look nice together as a complete set. The list below includes links to Amazon where you may find more information on the series as well as on each individual book. For the Love of Temperance is approximately 230 pages long and would be perfect to bring along on vacation or to read by firelight on a cold and stormy night. ;) Admittedly, I haven't read any of the others in the series, but after reading this story, I'm curious to explore the other volumes.

In this story, the two major characters have already met and have developed a friendship bordering on romantic relationship. Ichabod Temperance and Miss Persephone Plumtartt lead a large cast of both humans and animals, to battle and, hopefully, defeat the martians that have invaded Earth. Due to events from previous books in the series, the individuals involved have abilities that were effected, or rather, enhanced by the past event. Ichabod excels in the area of mechanics, Plumtartt in intelligence (and more), Bolt the dog can communicate telepathically, and so on. What I enjoyed was not only the time period with the added steam punk technology, but also to quirky dialogue. Some may like the slow burning romance between Ichabod and Persephone. But don't misunderstand and think this is a romance novel. There's only a bit of it sprinkled in here and there, very proper like. Most of it is science fiction and nearly constant action of fighting the aliens!
If you enjoy science fiction, steam punk, or more specifically the stories of authors such as H.G. Wells and Jules Vern, you'll like this entertaining read. There were a few parts that felt slow to me, but it was nonetheless a good story. I encourage readers to stick with it. You won't be disappointed. After finishing the novel, one thing stuck in my mind: this would make for a great radio program!
In the latest installment of the adventures of Ichabod Temperance and his lovely associate, Miss Persephone Plumtartt the earth is under attack from the heavens above and it's up to Mr. Temperance and his friends, old and new, to protect the planet.
The author is an amazing writer. I love the alternate earth he has created, the way the earth has been transformed since it crossed paths with the mysterious comet and how it's effects have rippled across the planet. I love the various characters he has brought to life, both ones based on known historical figures and brand new ones he has created just for his stories. I also especially love how the stories, while they are detailed, especially the steampunk inventions, never takes itself too seriously. There is always a fun, dare I say tongue in cheek, outlook that the author carries through on his characters adventures. With book three of his Adventures of Ichabod Temperance series he has once again pulled off all of the above.
I love following Ichabod and Miss Plumtartt in their adventures. This newest one has literally fell from the sky. But not only do I love their adventures I also thoroughly enjoy seeing them dance around their blossoming romance. It is all so proper and sweet. I'm hoping eventually at the end of all their amazing adventures that they are finally able to have their happily ever after and settle down to have a whole passel of little Ichabods and Persephones to carry on their legacy. As for the other characters they all have their own quirks and personalities that they bring to the table. I would definitely read any of their stories as well.
This episode of Ichabod and Miss Plumtartts adventures is a fun twist on the classic War of the Worlds. I don't want to spoil too much but the ending the ending is the best part of all. I really didn't see it coming, nor did I expect the final hero to end up being. However the ending wasn't just the best part of the book. I have to say I really liked the martians and the special twist the author put on them as well.
One of the other things I really like about the Temperance novels is how the author takes the time to fill the reader in on what is happening with the rest of the world. Through news reports as well as updates on characters from previous books we get to see how the aliens are faring all over the planet and how other people have decided to fight the alien menace. Throughout it all the author still keeps his sly humor and makes it fun for the reader along the way.
I definitely recommend picking up picking up this newest adventure. If you have Amazon Prime it's currently only .99 cents. If you haven't read any of the Adventures of Ichabod Temperance yet definitely pick up the first book in the series, A Matter of Temperance.
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.
