Here There Be Monsters by Meljean Brook

Here there be monsters by Meljean Brook is a wonderfully written short story, part of the anthology Burning Up and prequel to The Iron Duke. I have read various anthologies, but I haven’t had any favorite till now.

We all know it is very hard to write a short story that can be compared to a real book. But Meljean did a superb job.

Here there be monsters is a fantastic steampunk romance in an alternate Victorian setting complete with sexy pirate and strong heroine. In my opinion this is a perfect mix and I can’t wait to get my hands on The Iron Duke.

Contraindication: Meljean addiction. It is inadvisable to read this short story if you don’t already own your copy of The Iron Duke.

  5. I am still swooning over this read!=) There could not have been a better intro into Steampunk then Meljean's work here!

    Here There Be Monsters was unlike any romance story I have ever read. I LOVE my romance to no end and Meljean throws something into the mix that makes this novel explosive. Not just steampunk and not junk romance but explosion.

    The Iron Duke here I come!!

  6. I need an intro into Steampunk as I've never read any Steampunk books. Would it be better to read the short story or the book first?
