"I was sure we were going to be overwhelmed by our little attackers when I stepped forward while striking at a bird and my foot accidentally pinned another of the creatures, which Miss Bang knocked to the ground. As my weight came down, crushing the small creature the others abruptly broke and banked off, scattering in all direction...
"Could you be so kind as to lift your foot, my lord?" he said and squatted down next to my left foot. I looked down and realized he was looking at the foot that crushed one of the odd birds, causing its fellows to flee the scene...
"We are attacked by Budgies of Doom and now you're making friends, Professor Crackle?" I craned my neck to try and www what he found so fascinating about the small form he tucked into his handkerchief. "Don't you see?" he said smiling like a child with a new toy. "It's a clockwork. It is a work of art. Someone built this incredible replica, no, not a replica. An automaton, correct down tot he minutes detail..."
Art is where you make it, in Doc Coleman's world. "I sidled up to Miss Bang as well followed and asked, "Does this sort of thing happen often? Automata? Buildings collapsing. Attacks in the park?..." Readers will have to buy the book to find the answer to that question. I found it well worth the price.
As all reviewers should confess when they have a personal connection to a book, I admit that I was a Beta reader of Doc Coleman's new novel during its development, and I've known Doc for some years. I also purchased the published copy of the kindle, so I'm a paying customer. - David W. Wooddell
When he finally arrives at the opera house he expects to find his uncle displeased at his tardiness, but instead discovers he will be sharing box seats with Doctor Harmonious Crackle and his lovely companion Miss Titania Bang. But the evening goes awry when the singers turn out to be clever automatons that bring down the opera house in an attempt to kill the heir to the British throne.
Doc Coleman builds an interesting alternate world, where the Eternal Empress Victoria has ruled for over a hundred years. After the devastating attack against the nobility, his lordship becomes a reluctant companion of Crackle and Bang as they strive to ascertain who engineered the attack, and from what direction the next such murder attempt might come.
This is an entertaining adventure, filled with derring-do, humor, and as unique a set of characters as any I have ever encountered. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and look forward to the future adventures of Crackle and Bang.
