My two-bits for:
Here There Be Monsters by Meljean Brook
In-a-word(s): zounds
I loved that the heroine of this story was a strong character with special skills of her own. Woot for women blacksmiths!

It was fascinating to read about some of the steampunk technology in this world.

Oh yeah, plenty of steamy steampunk romance.

I am curious to know more about the dangerous and grimy world hinted at and look forward to learning more about it in the next part of the story that is of the Iron Duke.

reviews for the other stories still to come...
