Other than that minor nit-pick, this book has everything you'd expect from Currie: a strong female character, great action sequences, tight plotting, and fun moments when people have to abandon their preconceptions and accept that someone is much more than they thought they were. Having just finished a lengthy trilogy with a huge cast of characters and complicated story arcs, I was looking for something fast and furious, and "Steam Legion" hit the spot. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good time.
703, 'wet' should be went
1014, think you meant calm their fears, not tears
1047, 'however, she' has the comma in the wrong location
1080, look for 'the question I is' . Should be 'I have'
1965, should be 'before he ran out', not 'run'
2396, should be 'rout' not route
2924, look for 'axel', it should be 'axle'
3313, should be 'the job' not 'to job'
Something I really appreciate about this book is how well it melds word choices, speech patterns, characterizations, narrative and more to create an atmosphere that really supports the setting. I also like that there is very little fluff or extraneous text... Every statement seems to have a reason for existing.
My only complaint about this book, and it's a very minor one, is that it needed one more proof-reading pass. Frankly, given the high quality of the writing, even the few errors I saw tended to stick out. That didn't really affect my enjoyment of the story, though.
In closing, I'd like to say that I really, really enjoyed this book. If you like historically-themed science fiction with fast-paced action and vivid descriptions of combat, you'll probably like it too.
And make no mistake about it, Dyna may be one of the best female action heroes I've read in years. She's a compelling character, smart, deadly, and commanding of a fierce loyalty from her unexpected followers. You'll be cheering her on the whole way though the book and demanding more once you get to the end.
And let me just say one last thing for the sequel: That track-treaded design she's working on Mr. Currie? Make it happen. :)
