“A World of InTemperance” by Ichabod Temperance

Available on: Amazon
Released on: 8 January 2014

Description:┬áIt is New Year’s Eve, 1875. In this humorously told Steampunk tale, adventure-prone Ichabod Temperance and his lovely sweetheart, Miss Persephone Plumtartt, once again find themselves swept up into a whirlwind of misadventure and international catastrophe. The entire world totters on the brink of war, as various nations develop arsenals of dreadful power. It seems as though every nation on Earth lusts for Empire. A sinister plot boils to change the course of human history. Along with a remarkable cast of characters, including sapient animals and clockwork men, our heroes find themselves plunged into unimaginable peril!


And here’s my next sequel review!

I found that I didn’t enjoy this one QUITE as much as I did the first book in this series, but I did still enjoy it. I found that there was a charming quirkiness to the first one that I found lessened in this one, at least through most of the beginning, though I saw more of it as the book progressed and I enjoyed it more as I saw those things return.

This book did kind of make me think of what Patterson’s “Zoo” would have been like if it had been steampunk, and funnier, and, y’know, written better.

There were several new elements I really enjoyed: Bolt was awesome. I really liked Cogito as well. In both cases, I love when we see humanity via the inhuman. It’s a theme I really like, as anyone who has read my Adelheid series will know. Our Author continues to have a way with wonderfully color characters, which we see a lot more of in this book. Gauzot was a lot of fun, and I liked her fight scenes in particular. Piston was also very amusing.

I did find that the ending felt a little rushed, but still funky and fun. So, still a great read and one I’d definitely recommend. I even had to read a couple parts aloud to my husband that I found particularly funny. I’ll be reading the third book! A solid 4 Fireballs.
