Revue de presse

"An absolute delight to read."—Portland Book Review

" Saintcrow scores a hit with this terrific Steampunk series that rockets through a Britain-that-wasn't with magic and industrial mayhem with a firm nod to Holmes. Genius and a rocking good time."—Patricia Briggs on The Iron Wyrm Affair

"Saintcrow melds a complex magic system with a subtle but effective steampunk society, adds fully-fleshed and complicated characters, and delivers a clever and highly engaging mystery that kept me turning pages, fascinated to the very end."—Laura Anne Gilman on The Iron Wyrm Affair

"Innovative world building, powerful steam punk, master storyteller at her best. Don't miss this one....She's fabulous. "—Christine Feehan on The Iron Wyrm Affair

"Lilith Saintcrow spins a world of deadly magic, grand adventure, and fast-paced intrigue through the clattering streets of a maze-like mechanized Londonium. The Iron Wyrm Affair is a fantastic mix of action, steam, and mystery dredged in dark magic with a hint of romance. Loved it! Do not miss this wonderful addition to the steampunk genre."—Devon Monk on The Iron Wyrm Affair

"Lilith Saintcrow's foray into steampunk plunges the reader into a Victorian England rife with magic and menace, where clockwork horses pace the cobbled streets, dragons rule the ironworks, and it will take a sorceress' discipline and a logician's powers of deduction to unravel a bloody conspiracy."—Jacqueline Carey on The Iron Wyrm Affair --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

The service of Britannia is not for the faint of heart--or conscience...

Emma Bannon, Sorceress Prime in service to Queen Victrix, has a mission: to find the doctor who has created a powerful new weapon. Her friend, the mentath Archibald Clare, is only too happy to help. It will distract him from pursuing his nemesis, and besides, Clare is not as young as he used to be. A spot of Miss Bannon's excellent hospitality and her diverting company may be just what he needs.

Unfortunately, their quarry is a fanatic, and his poisonous discovery is just as dangerous to Britannia as to Her enemies. Now a single man has set Londinium ablaze, and Clare finds himself in the middle of distressing excitement, racing against time and theory to find a cure. Miss Bannon, of course, has troubles of her own, for the Queen's Consort Alberich is ill, and Her Majesty unhappy with Bannon's loyal service. And there is still no reliable way to find a hansom when one needs it most...

The game is afoot. And the Red Plague rises.

The fantastic follow-up to The Iron Wyrm Affair, set in an alternate Victorian world where magic has turned the Industrial Revolution on its head. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Confusing And Slowly Paced 26 août 2013
Par London Fog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Despite numerous attempts to settle into this book, I had a difficult time appreciating what appeared to be an interesting story due to fundamental problems with flow, continuity and structure. The writing was actually quite fluent and beautiful, however there were issues, mainly with the pacing, that I simply could not overlook. From the opening scene, we are quite literally thrown into a choppy, confusing action sequence that should have started things on a high point, but instead, due to the utter lack of explanation as to precisely what was going on, I found the story difficult to follow. There were a few bits mentioning who Clare was fighting off, but only crumbs were dropped for the reader so that there was a perpetual question as to what was occurring in many of the fast moving scenes.

This became a trend. Half the time I had trouble picturing what was going on when things picked up, and the other half was spent on entirely too much inward exposition - so that the general pace of `The Red Plague Affair' swung back and forth between choppy action scene to chapters of introspection. There was also a distinct lack of dialogue throughout, which made for tedious reading after a time.

Unlike some other serialized novels, there was practically no real introduction here to this world, so if reading this without being familiar with the first book, you might find yourself out at sea in regards to back story. Unfortunate, because the bare bones of the premise intrigued me greatly, though I felt the main issue here was the execution of that idea was sorely lacking, and made this a largely dull novel that took a painfully long time to complete. In fact, back in June, I received this as an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, and am only just completing it now.

Very confusing and poorly paced 23 mars 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'd thought this book would be more akin to the first in the series and it simply wasn't anywhere close. The first was beautifully written and easily pictured in my minds eye. This one has been so choppy that I haven't been able to get one scene throughout the entire book in one fluid picture. Each scene is choppy and her choice of words repetitive.

For instance in the scene where Sigmund Baerbarth wakes Clare in chapter 11 "His seamed head a boiled egg proud dome absently waved a teacup..." Okay seriously that's a bit odd but just a couple paragraphs later he now has "Poached-egg eyes behind their spectacles swimming a bit."

If that isn't enough in the prior chapter (10) She wrote "oddly placed odds and ends" For that matter there must have been a sale on the word odd for the book because its used with some regularity which I find very odd... okay poor joke but seriously its a hard read.

I'm sorry to say that this book isn't as good as the first its almost as if she lost focus and slapped together scene after scene in the most haphazard way. She spent too much time delving into the introspection of the character and not enough time outside building the story. I had great hopes for this book but they were dashed in chapter 1 and never redeemed itself.

Second Helping was Disappointing 7 juillet 2014
Par KSluss - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
What I liked:
Unique Plot--Victorian Era WMDs and Bio-terrorism
Emma growing as a character, learning more about her back ground
More hints about Mikal and who/what he is.

What I didn't like
Slow plot pacing. Very very slow.
None of the fire between Emma and Mikal of the previous book--very little advancement of their relationship. Romance factor almost non existent.
The ending is saved by a Deus ex Machina--an act of "God". I sorta hate when that happens.
Little time spent with some of the best secondary characters from the first book like Ludovico.

I will probably read the next book in the series, but I'm not very anxious to get to it. Not like I was after reading the first book.

As usual, entertaining. 22 mai 2013
Par Daemonaquila - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
While it's not Lilith Saintcrow's best, the Red Plague Affair is plenty of fun to read (as witnessed by my finishing it in 2.5 hours when I should have been working). This episode starts several years after the first book, opening up some interesting future dilemmas for all involved. Where Red Plage Affair suffers is in giving the impression that it prioritizes setting up the next book over the story at hand, rather like The Empire Strikes Back. However, since many have been calling that the strongest movie of the original Star Wars trilogy, perhaps there is little harm. In any event, grab an iced tea and a hammock, and enjoy this as a summer afternoon read.

Maybe a better read... 12 avril 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
I was disappointed with this book. It seemed to meander. Sometimes a book has a message that it tries to force the plot to convey. This was empty. A lot of actions weren't explained. Unfortunately, this didn't come off as mysterious, rather it came off as amateurish. As a listen, there were statements that totally didn't make sense. It was difficult to separate Emma's introspection from dialogue. This might have been a good read but wasn't a good listen. Given the quality of the Immortal Queen series, this was lacking.
