Lightning Wolves Clockwork Legion #2

It's 1877 and Russians forces occupy the Pacific Northwest They are advancing into California New weapons have proven ineffective or dangerously. I received a copy of this book from the author via this does not affect my opinion of this book or the content of my review Additionally I do not know the author nor do I have any type of personal relationship with himThis book started off promisingly enough with a dream about the war No not the civil war a war between the United States and Russia in an alternate history where steam rules and fantastical engineering feats are accomplished and where a shadowy entity known as The Legion runs amuck in society politics and war It turns out this is actually the second story in the series but overall I d say the author does a fair job of updating the reader on events so that this can be read as a stand aloneHowever can and should are two very different things And right after checking in with the main protagonists we start cutting away to other characters who are obviously and pointedly the main protagonists of the first book I ll admit it took me out of the story a bit and I struggled to care a whit for them Maybe I am a bit too ADHD but I have trouble focusing on than a small handful of unknown characters at a timeBut back to the two I consider the main characters in this book One is Larissa Crimson a bounty hunter and war hero living under an assumed name She should have been right up my alley a wild west feminist interested in science and engineering Yes that should have been my catnip What got in the way of that is before I even got to know her as she is we started getting dreams of her childhood The other is Professor Maravilla He s a steam punk mad scientist and a naturalist with a penchant for talking to himself and he too is living under an assumed name And then a little later we are introduced to the third main character Sergeant Michael Harris He s the one who ties the characters from the previous story back into the current oneAs for the story itself the first part seems like a McGuffin The professor and Larissa are searching for the answer to a camel carrying a skeleton which is spooking people off from an area The mystery is eventually solved but initially the only purpose I could see for it was to give the professor and Larissa a reason to be difficult to find It turns out that isn t the case it was a lesson characters needed to learn There were several other plot lines that all eventually converged There was excitement and drama and off course fantastical steam punk elementsSo I suppose this all makes it sound as though I didn t like it when that couldn t be further from the truth There was much of it I enjoyed tremendously it is just those parts are hard to explain without getting into spoiler territory Legion is absolutely fascinating and by the end of the book I did come to care about the characters While a few elements could stand to be tightened up it was all in all a very entertaining book that kept me engage for the afternoon I read it 35 starsCross posted

It's when the power goes out and you curl up on the couch with a flashlight so that you can keep reading Seriously This happened to me last night Thankfully the power was only out for about 30 minutes but during that 30 minutes I was reading by flashlight Why? Because I loved the alternative take on history I loved the ideas of new aircraft and ways of doing things that f

    Note While this is Book 2 in the series I feel that most readers could pick it up and enjoy it There is enough material from Book 1 mentioned to explain the background of characters in Book 2This book is part alternate history part steampunk
