When one of Jack Fletcher's nanoelectromechanical system experiments is jostled in his lab, the resulting explosion sends him into the world of his favorite novel-a seemingly Victorian-era world of steampower, aether guns, corsets, and goggles. A world where the lovely and intrepid Octavia Pye captains her airship straight into his heart...
As much as I love Katie MacAlister, Steamed started off really slow for me. I could not get into the book. I even put it down for a few months before picking it up again to finish it. Nevertheless, once I got into this story, it was wonderful.
The main character, Jack, ends up in steampunk world with his sister after one of his experiments goes awry. There, he meets Captain Octavia Pye and ends up falling in love with her. Along the way, his sister gets kidnapped. MacAlister has a way of making such a dire situation such as kidnapping funny, quirky and entertaining along the way.
If you like steampunk romance or pirate stories, you will love this book. It is full of action, adventure, romance, and some sexy scenes. The characters are witty and hilarious. I would recommend this book for ages over 16 because of the sex scenes. If you like that sort of thing, you love those scenes because they are HOT!
Swords are for fighting!
