Incarnation by Emma Cornwall

24 January 2013 Casey 2

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading Emma Cornwall’s Incarnation. The blurb was interesting enough, and since I loved Dracula, Incarnation looked like it would be a cool twist on that classic story. Unfortunately, nothing about Incarnation caught my interest. I ended up putting the book down about halfway through it, and […]

The magical world of an alternate history London is unfolded in The Iron Wyrm Affair by Lillith Saintcrow.

Jay Kristoff brings steampunk to feudal Japan in a way that is truly groundbreaking with Stormdancer. Even though the story’s locale is different, it’s not Victorian London or Civil War era US, it is Kristoff’s understanding of steampunk that takes this book from an interesting read to a stellar gamechanger. […]

The Clockwork Century Series by Cherie Priest is one of my absolute favorite steampunk series, so it was no surprise that I rushed out to the bookstore to pick up the fifth book, The Inexplicables. Cherie Priest does not disappoint and returns to her incredible alternate world, starting with a […]

I was pretty stoked when Jackie asked each of us to share our recommendations. I realized quickly when I joined the LE crew that I have a different taste in books from the other gals. For instance, zombies and a post apocalyptic wasteland are much more my idea of a […]
