Steampunk Fantasy Early Review: Unseemly Science by Rod Duncan

Unseemly Science by Rod Duncan (The Fall of Gas-Lit Empire #2)

Egalley courtesy of Angry Robot

Synopsis from Goodreads
In the divided land of England, Elizabeth Barnabus has been living a double life - as both herself and as her brother, the private detective. Witnessing the hanging of Alice Carter, the false duchess, Elizabeth resolves to throw the Bullet Catcher’s Handbook into the fire, and forget her past. If only it were that easy!

There is a new charitable organisation in town, run by some highly respectable women. But something doesn’t feel right to Elizabeth. Perhaps it is time for her fictional brother to come out of retirement for one last case…? Her unstoppable curiosity leads her to a dark world of body-snatching, unseemly experimentation, politics and scandal. Never was it harder for a woman in a man’s world…

Release date: May 5th 2015
Amazon US/UK | Amazon kindle US/UK | The Book Depository

The continuation of The Bullet-Catcher's Daughter might not be as flashy as some other steampunk novels, but it's solid as a rock.

The Postman Knock #121

Hello, my lovelies!
Well, well, well, I woke up today to more than half a million views on the blog :)))) So cool!
It's also raining and gray, and I am quite happy to stay in bed for awhile.
Also, we have two new kittens playing furiously with each other as I'm typing, and I am enjoying the view.
Meet Olive and Haggbard (the latter is a character from my hubby's favorite book).

Here is what I READ/LISTENED TO in the last 2 weeks:

I already lamented that GHOST STORY isn't narrated by James Marsters which spoiled my listening experience. But. Someone pointed out that Marsters came back and recorded this book in the end, and Audible US has both versions for sale. Of course it wasn't the case with Audible UK. *sigh* Loved UNSEEMLY SCIENCE, and absolutely adored A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES. Maas writes fantastic kick ass heroines! Sherry Thomas can't do anything wrong, and THE ONE IN MY HEART was clever and lovely. COLD DAYS's ending was an absolute shock for me, and I'm on the latest book in this series now. I enjoyed MATERIAL GIRLS immensely, it was a wickedly clever dystopia. At last, CAPTURE was a fabulous ending to a geeky, funny and sweet series. All in all, it was two weeks of very good reading for me.


Oh noes! Last two Dresdens! What do I binge listen to now?!

I didn't realise Elezar had his own books until now, so I had to start reading his story as well.

This is it for me, peeps. No review books, and I'm finally clearing out my review shelves for the summer.
Hugs to all and have a wonderful week!

Romantic Suspense Release Day Review: Non-Stop Till Tokyo by K.J. Charles

Non-Stop Till Tokyo by K.J. Charles

Egalley thanks to Samhain Publishing, Ltd.

Synopsis from Goodreads
A man with a past is her only hope for the future.

Kerry Ekdahl’s mixed heritage and linguistics skills could have made her a corporate star. Instead, she’s a hostess in a high-end Tokyo bar, catering to businessmen who want conversation, translation and flirtation. Easy money, no stress. Life is good—until she’s framed for the murder of a yakuza boss.

Trapped in rural Japan with the gangsters closing in, Kerry doesn’t stand a chance. Then help arrives in the menacing form of Chanko, a Samoan-American ex-sumo wrestler with a bad attitude, a lot of secrets, and a mission she doesn’t understand.

Kerry doesn’t get involved with dangerous men. Then again, she’s never had one on her side before. And the big, taciturn fighter seems determined to save her life, even if they rub each other the wrong way.

Then her friends are threatened, and Kerry has no choice but to return to Tokyo and face the yakuza. Where she learns, too late, that the muscle man who’s got her back could be poised to stab it.

Warning: Contains graphic violence, swearing, and implied sexual abuse.

Amazon kindle US/UK

 I did not expect that from K.J. Charles, that's for sure! This is an adrenaline-fueled, gloriously action-packed thriller in the best tradition of Hardboiled, and you can be sure I was in heaven reading it!
