This is the first steampunk novel that I have read (and I have read a lot!) based in Africa, and the blend of the African theme in the Norin culture and names and the steampunk theme is unique to me. The story starts with an intriguing hunt and kept me turning the pages, with twists and turns and great scene and character building. The heroine, Lynx, is my kind of leading lady - strong willed, honourable, and because of that; a tiny bit predictable. Whereas the world she navigates and the characters she meets are anything but.
As soon as I finished Rebel's Honor, I downloaded the next in the series, Warlords Wager, to carry on the story of Lynx, Axel and Lukan and I have not been disappointed. I'm really hoping the author is very busy on the third book!
The setting is unique and makes it hard to lock this story into a particular genre. The book reads like an epic fantasy with its evil empire and court intrigue, yet the civilization is steam-powered with a secretive advanced technology. Then there are the nomadic people that add an African flavor. The opening action sequence portraying an ostrich hunt was great.
The characters are well-developed, and the multiple points-of-view keep the reader from being too quick to judge. Just when I thought I had a character figured out, Gwynn showed me the world through his eyes and I begin to wonder if he was truly evil or just misunderstood. I’m not normally a fan switching point-of-view so often, but in this case, it does work to heighten the intrigue. And this story is packed with intrigue.
If I had one criticism, it would be that I occasionally got lost in all the intrigue, and was a little fuzzy on some of the character’s motivations. But the fault might have been mine because I was reading so darn fast. I probably missed a few things. As I said, this book was a page-turner and I HAD to see how it ended.
To sum up, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this. Yes, it ends on a cliffhanger, but with book 2 already available, I have no problem with that. I recommend it!
Lynx, a Norin princess and heir to its throne, is oath-bound to marry the crown prince of Chenaya, Lukan. Not only she hates everything Chenayan as the conquering nation, she despises her future husband as well. The company of her sister Kestrel is no comfort. For Norin, honor is the most valued virtue and Lynx cannot imagine breaking one, no matter how much she wants to. But travelling to the heart of the empire opens her eyes and causes Lynx many surprises. Not only in technology and devices Chenaya possesses, but also in political machinery and surprising friendships...even love. However, Lynx's life is in constant danger and she can't be sure who is an ally and who is enemy.
I am totally intrigued by this story. Great plot, fast pace, intricate storylines, outstanding characters. I absolutely loved the detailed world building and the realistic, complex personalities of the main characters. Lynx is a strong heroine, passionate and wild, just and fierce, changing under the pressure of circumstances. Lukan is full of conflicts, gentle and misunderstood on one side, but vengeful and full of self-loathing on the other side. I fell for Axel immediately, despite his arrogance and plotting, but his heart and sacrifices won me over. And I absolutely adored Tao and Malika. Their contribution to the story addicted me more to this world.
This story was action packed, adventurous, full of tension and drama, and very emotional. I loved it very much and by the time I am writing this review, I am already reading book 2. Great read, fully recommended!
