My first venture into "Steampunk" and I liked it well enough to then buy the first book in the series (this is the second). I think I'll enjoy this series, so I really hope there will be more. Historical science fiction in an alternate reality? At any rate I thought it was quite good.
A really interesting read about English life in Victorian/Edwardian days through shortly after WWI. The current tie to the "Downton Abbey" series and the always interesting story of the discovery of the discovery of "King Tut's tomb" make it doubly interesting.
Wanders a bit at the beginning, but once it gets to the point the story unwraps in a fast and furious manner. Even the evil ner-do-wells are complete gentlemen it seems. Thoroughly enjoyable. I'll have to read more.
The thrills never stop, and the escapes are reminiscent of a Saturday movie serial. Rollins is in top form for Ice Hunt as he assembles an interesting cast of characters to tackle seemingly impossible odds. Very satisfying adventure thriller!
A most interesting read, not at all like I remember the movie "Soylent Green". I'm going to have to watch it again to refresh my memory. The overwhelming message of the book is over population. The origin of "Soylent Green" is never mentioned.
