If this is what can be expected of steampunk novels....I'm in love! I positively devoured this novel. I've blogged about my issues with reading historical fiction before, luckily for me this novel, and from what I know steampunk in general, doesn't rely on history being mostly accurate or well-known. Imagination leads!
Set in Seattle during the American revolutionary war, Boneshaker is the story about ingenuity and family. Toss in a biological disaster, some zombies, an airship or two, and an underground resistance to make an enjoyable, complex, and enthralling world.
I'm so excited about this novel I've already bought its follow-up, Dreadnought and am eagerly awaiting Ms. Priest's appearance at the Phoenix Comicon in a few months.
