I have to say I am impressed with how the author works in a classic character, while at the same time making the character one of his own. He also doesn't use someone else's creation to carry his story. His own characters shoulder that weight and keep the story moving, exciting and funny all at the same time. Once again we also get to see the story from more than just the main characters points of view. I, personally, really enjoy getting to see the perspective of the supporting characters. It gives a fresh and amusing view of the story, as well as the main characters themselves that otherwise one might not always see.
I love the authors sense of humor as well. Even in the darkest hours it never takes itself too seriously. It helps to keep the book light and fun. I also really enjoy the way that the author finds a way for his characters to save the day that is always amusing and unexpected. You never quite know how it's going to end. Even in this one there is a definite surprise at the end that I didn't see coming. Again, it involves how the author weaves the characters into the story, so I don't want to say more and give too much of the ending away.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the books in the series. They are all quite capable of being stand alone novels. Even so, I still think that they should be read in order. I really can't wait to see what the author has in store for Ichabod and Miss Plumtartt's next adventure. If you haven't read any of the books in the series yet, definitely go pick them up. With summer right around the corner, whether you pick up all the books out so far, or just the first few in the series, it will definitely give you something fun to read while you're relaxing on vacation. I can say that the books are addicting so if you read the first you'll want to read the rest.
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.
In this steampunk set in the Victorian era take places the adventures of Ichabod and Persephone who must seek help from the most famous detective
It's the fourth book in a series of 10, can be read as a standalone, I had no particular problems but I can't wait to read the first three books.
This book is full of fun and full of humor, the plot is well woven and full of twists, difficult to guess what will happen. It 's so addictive that once started it is impossible to put it down.
I highly recommend this book!
Ichabod Temperance and his companion Persephone Plumtartt arrive in England and are instantly plunged into a rousing adventure and well as making the acquaintance of a certain detective whose last name is Holmes and who has a brother high-placed in British circles. The brother wishes his younger sibling would settle down and do something with his intellect.
The story is told from many different POVs which is surprisingly not as confusing as I would have thought. Each POV character has very much his/her own voice so it was instantly evident who was doing the talking.
And, the laughs! My poor husband was trying to read his own book but kept being interrupted. “Let me read you this part!”
I adore Temperance and Plumtartt, however I would be amiss if I did not mention the supporting characters and how much they added to the story. My very favorites had to be the BarbaraHaughnne brothers, Yababadabadoiah and Scubidubeduiah. As you can see, there are many cultural in-jokes that will not detract from your enjoyment of the book if you don’t get them, but add another level of pleasure when you do—so much so I now want to reread the book just to find them!
I am so going to go back and buy the rest of the books in the series—starting with book one. Mr. Ichabod Temperance, you have found a new fan!
originally posted at long and short reviews
This is the fourth book in the Temperance series, and it was a fun little scamper through steampunk action-adventure. Our author continues to amuse with funny little pop culture in-jokes (that you don’t need to get to like the story) and that “this isn’t really PC but it works” edge to many things. Ichabod and Persephone maintain their status as Adorable.
We also make a new friend in this one, quite the ‘great detective’ and it’s a fun addition, but I like how the name is never truly used.
My only real complaint about this one is that is seemed to employ a lot more phonetic accents–spelling out the accent instead of just saying the character had one. It was hard enough to follow in several pieces of dialog, but the exposition written in it could make it tough to follow on the over-all. Plus, a lot of names. (Though the priest was a nice touch.)
Even so, you could follow along and enjoy the story, but I personally would have liked to see a bit less of it. It did hamper my enjoyment a little and I worry I missed things, so this one gets a 4.5 this time around. But I just saw that there is already a fifth book and I’m looking forward to it!
