With Green’s usual flair for pulling in all of the related Steampunk tropes (I
hate to keep using that word, but it is better than saying clichés), he has once again picked a subject and injected it with the usual dose of steam powered high jinx, “Wellsian” Victorian Science Fiction, James Bond style espionage, and good old fashioned high adventure...
One of the joys of Green’s Pax Britannia books is his development of some of the supporting cast of characters, in particular in this book I was taken by the Billie, the street “urchin” cab driver, who’s cab happens to be a steam powered ex-military war droid!
You can read David's full review here.
I am reliably informed that he's already started Pax Britannia: Anno Frankenstein, so expect a link to another review soon.
Which reminds me - I really need to crack on with Pax Britannia: Time's Arrow, or David (and others) are soon going to run out of stuff to read!
