AMayer-Power Under Pressure

Power Under Pressure by Andrew P. Mayer

24 February 2013 Natassia 0

The Society of Steam trilogy concludes in Andrew P. Mayer’s Power Under Pressure. I dived right into reading directly after finishing Hearts of Smoke and Steam and was glad I did. Each plot twist was cleverly wrapped up in Power Under Pressure and as a whole, the trilogy stands as […]

Hearts of Smoke and Steam by Andrew P. Mayer

11 January 2013 Natassia 0

Andrew P. Mayer’s Society of Steam continues in the riveting Hearts of Smoke and Steam. After reading the first in the series, I was curious to see what adventures would befall Mayer’s inventive characters. I was amazed to see that every minor complaint I had of the first book was […]

The Falling Machine by Andrew P. Mayer

As soon as I read the premise of The Falling Machine by Andrew Mayer I was hooked. It was practically made to catch my eye. With steampunk superheroes based in Victorian New York and a protagonist who is tired of what society thinks of her, this book may just be […]

I met the wonderfully fab Amanda Carlson while at the Authors After Dark and as a featured blogger, LE got a few extra perks, namely some ARCs.  One of those was Amanda’s Full Blooded.  Since I had the pleasure of meeting with her, when I was looking through my stack […]

Jennifer Estep is one of my all time favorite authors, so when I heard that she just released a new short story ebook set in her Bigtime series I literally squealed in delight. When I found out that I got to read A Karma Girl Christmas for LE, I squealed even louder because […]

Young Justice

If you follow LE on Facebook or Twitter, you probably already know that I’ve been watching a lot of DC Comic shows and movies, one of which is the Cartoon Networks’ Young Justice. Don’t call them sidekicks! Superboy, Robin, Aqualad, Miss Martian, Kid Flash and Artemis are Young Justice, the […]

Superman: Earth One

Continuity has been a sore spot in the comic world where parallel universes, what-ifs, and plain sloppy writing can destroy a character’s back story. Attempts have been made in the past to simplify the DC universe (Crisis on Infinite Earths, for example), but that only serves to muddy the water. […]

Superman: Red Son by M. Millar

So it’s come to this. To be honest, I hadn’t read any comics in several years. A series of events changed that: Constant stream of superhero movies (as many bad as good, sadly). Letting Jackie talk me into reviewing the Novelization of Final Crisis by Greg Cox The outstandingly funny […]

AMayer-The Falling Machine

The Falling Machine by A. Mayer

8 May 2011 Jennifer 5

When Jackie first offered me The Falling Machine by Andrew Mayer I really had no idea what to expect. I’d never heard of the book or it’s author, but I’m always willing to try something new. Also, it didn’t hurt that I’ve been having a good streak with steampunk novels. […]
