My Pick...

The Friday Society The Friday Society
by Adrienne Kress

Steampunk (Science Fiction/Alternate History Fiction)
Publication Date: December 6, 2012

An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns--and the heroines who use them all

Set in Edwardian London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.

It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder--and the crimes they believe may be connected to it--without calling too much attention to themselves.

Told with Adrienne Kress's sharp wit and a great deal of irreverence, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike--well, relatively ladylike--heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.

I love the Steampunk genre and was excited to read this book as soon as I heard about it. It's been on my TBR for a while and I still have several more months to wait. *sigh*

What upcoming books are you anticipating?

  1. I think I love steampunk purely for the outfits, and *always* the goggles on their heads. Thanks for sharing this!
