I liked Steampunk an awful lot and for a few different reasons. The first reason was that the story’s are relatively short so if one is not absolutely enticing and amazing (which I found all but two were), then you’ll quickly be done with it. I think most young readers will be pulled into this world of churning gears, murder mysteries, and steam-powered machines. The way the authors in this genre shape it to their own tastes never ceases to amaze me. First it might be ancient Rome, then a different California, then an alternate Canada. I loved this book!
