Présentation de l'éditeur

Book seven of The Gaslight Chronicles

When airship engineer Melody McKay's dirigible explodes and plunges her into the yard of a gothic manor, she suspects foul play. With her ankle injured—an indignity far too feminine for her taste—she resolves to crack the mystery while in the care of Victor Arrington, the stuffy-yet-disarming Earl of Blackwell.

Ex-Royal Navy Captain Victor runs a tight house and is on a mission to protect his niece and foil a ring of smugglers using fire-breathing metal dragons. He has no time for romantic attachments. Particularly not with women who fall from the sky wearing trousers and pilot's goggles.

As he and Melody navigate a treachery so deep it threatens the lives of everyone in Black Heath, the earl becomes unexpectedly attached to his fiery houseguest, and Melody discovers a softness in her heart for him. But when the smugglers strike, there's more at risk than just their future together.

HASH(0x95b369f0) étoiles sur 5 A more apt name for the book would be "Inconsistent plot and Inaccurate genre" 17 juillet 2014
Par Krithika Natarajan - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I read this book late last night. I can't remember much about it today except for a vague feeling of distaste. The characters are completely unmemorable, cookie cutter romance novel protagonists. If you're looking for a light read where you can skip 5 - 10 pages at a time without missing anything, this could be your cup of tea. It was not mine.

Maybe my distaste for the novel is because I expected stronger fantasy/steampunk elements in the book given the name and the advertised genre. This is a ROMANCE novel. The steampunk aspects are limited to hints in the background used as an excuse for women in Victorian England to behave like trouser wearing, career pursuing 21st century women. But even as a romance novel, it didn't really work for me because the story was simply too rushed. I couldn't fathom why the MC's fell in love. The romantic plot points designed to develop the romance between them were awkwardly shoehorned in and the romance itself was treated in a perfunctory manner.

The mystery sub plot didn't make much sense either and towards the end of the book, the author seems to have been in a rush to wrap things up. I'm still confused about why slave traders taking slaves from Africa to America would need a base in a remote English village but lets just chalk that one up to criminal stupidity. A bunch of characters one couldn't care less about are introduced and killed off in the last few chapters and a weird incest angle is brought in as well. The hero himself seems a little confused about who some people he meets in the last chapters are. The plot holes are too numerous to count and at a point one stops questioning and just skips past the really head scratching bits so that one can get it over with.

All said, the author's writing style is readable and there are no egregious grammar/spelling errors. I won't be reading anything else by this author but for those looking for an uncomplicated read, this may suit.

HASH(0x95b3687c) étoiles sur 5 Steampunk, Sass and Romance! 19 mai 2014

Dragons & Dirigibles starts out as quite a cute story with a single man, taking care of his young niece trying to find his way when Melody McKay crash lands on Ex-Navy Captain Victor Arrinton's front lawn. With a broken ankle, Victor swipes Melody into his home which starts the journey of bringing her into his heart.

Every character in this story has spunk but add in an adorable niece, loyal and devoted dog and not to deny mentioning the sassy Melody herself you can't help but immediately connect. While there is a ton of humor and lovely characters there is also a dark menace lurking behind the mystery of Victor's family's death as well as smugglers who have turned deadly.

This novella length story was utterly enchanting. Although it only minorly touched on the paranormal side of typical Gaslight Chronicles storylines, it had plenty of steampunk qualities to fascinate us all. When pared with Cindy Spencer Pape's writing style, we are thrust into a wondrous adventure, a thrilling mystery and a delightful romance. Don't miss Dragons & Dirigibles.

I received this ARC copy of Dragons & Dirigibles from Carina Press in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication May 19, 2014.

Ends too soon, and is entirely predictable...the ending too abrupt, as if wrapped up at top speed, a deadline...I also did not like the one sex scene, thought it unnecessary and gratuitous...not suitable in a straight adventure story with rather simple characters...a bit of a surprise! But, on the whole, a decent read, good for a journey or the beach!

I admit that I am a huge fan of the Gaslight Chronicles and this volume didn't disappoint. I would not recommend reading this one first if you have never read once of the Gaslight Chronicles. Start with Steam and Sorcery so that you understand all of the characters' backstories. Plus the ending of this book concerns a long standing subplot and I think you'll enjoy it more (I almost cried) if you know more about the characters. That being said, it is the characters that bring me back every time. Cindy does a great job of creating characters that you just want to spend time with. Add a gothic English setting with steampunk gadgetry and this book is one that I will be reading time and time again.

3.5 stars.

This book started out strong and very interesting. It's an interesting alternate Europe that mixes supernatural and steampunk. I found myself cheering for Melody and warming up to Victor despite some of his old-fashioned (then in fashion) ways and beliefs. I knew this was a novella getting into it and that didn't bother me. But, I found that I liked the characters and the story so much so that I wanted more of it, and not just more of the series, but more of this novel. With a few things fleshed out fully this would have been outstanding. As it was, it was a good, quick read that felt a bit rushed. I would recommend it for fans of romantic steampunk.
