Jeannie Lin on Steamside Chronicles

Wow, what a treat, when an author you admire so much reads your work and takes the time to review it. I’m thrilled. Jeannie Lin is the much lauded author of the spectacular Butterfly Swords and is an all round good egg (with spectacular taste ;o). How kind! I hope she doesn’t mind if I quote her a bit:

“Wonderful speculative fiction. You’ll find yourself trying to figure out the world along with Fenwick (Emily). The absolute beauty of this story is how it’s written with so much ATTITUDE and cleverness. I loved Ciar Cullen’s writing. Every scene was a treat. The emotional development between Fen and Jack is the most heart-rending and realistic I’ve read in a long time — despite the very “unreal” setting. The romance will remind you of how vulnerable and obsessive and sometimes silly new love can be.

The story really defies description. Highly recommend this for readers of science fiction, steampunk, or anyone who likes to be a little adventurous in their reading. I can’t wait to read more from this author.”–via Goodreads
