So sorry that this one is so late, but a 3 hour PTSO meeting sort of threw everything off schedule.
Boneshaker has to be one of my favorite books of 2009. Written by the lovely Cherie Priest it is everything a steampunk novel should be.
It was chosen as one of the best books of the year by Publisher’s Weekly and has just gone into it’s fifth printing.
It has some of the most wonderful character names ever, like Leviticus Blue.
“AUGUST 11, 1864-Briar Blue held for questioning after collapse of fourth bank on Commercial Avenue, disappearance of her husband. Her role in the events of the Boneshaker calamity remains unclear”-p.51, Boneshaker, Cherie Priest.
