I found The Impossible Cube to have a nice mix of characters, settings, and story. The motivations for the characters may not always be the best, but each of the characters firmly believes in them, and that spills over into the "believeability" factor for me. That factor is also carried further by the flexibility of the characters and by that I mean that, while there are "good" and "bad" characters, they are, over all, characters with both good and bad sides to them.Full Review
The second Clockwork Empire steampunk alternate historical is an exciting adventure thriller that starts off with action and never slows down until a confrontation in the Ukraine. Fast-paced, readers will enjoy the escapes of the Bostonian and the lady as she is apt to rescue him even more than he does her.Full Review
