Wanted: Steamed by Katie MacAlister

I've been wanting to read a Steampunk novel for awhile but have yet to do it. I think Steamed by Katie MacAlister will probably be the book that will bring me into this new genre.

Wanted: Steamed by Katie MacAlister

Steamed by Katie MacAlister
Steampunk
Release Date: February 2, 2010

Jack Fletcher's heart is about to get punked.

Computer technician Jack Fletcher is no hero, despite his unwelcome reputation as one. In fact, he's just been the victim of bizarre circumstances. Like now. His sister happens to disturb one of his nanoelectromechanical system experiments, and now they aren't where they're supposed to be. In fact, they're not sure where they are when…

…they wake up to see a woman with the reddest hair Jack has ever seen-and a gun. Octavia Pye is an Aerocorps captain with a whole lot of secrets, and she's not about to see her maiden voyage ruined by stowaways. But the sparks flying between her and Jack just may cause her airship to combust and ignite a passion that will forever change the world as she knows it…

It sounds like a great choice for a first read in the Steampunk genre! I hope it will be a memorable read for you Donna :)

Another book that looks awesome in your wanted poster! I just picked this one up on Sunday afternoon. I read the first chapter, but put it down because I was already in the midst of another book. I'm heading back to it soon, though. It was very fun so far.

It's also going to be my first Steampunk novel! WOoHoO! Finally ... ;)

Donna I love your wanted graphics. I don't think I've read a steampunk novel... how is this genre different than UF? Psst I've googled this term like 5 times and can't come up with a good answer.

What a great cover. I should add this to my list.

VampFanGirl said...

Oh yeah! I've been dying for this one too.

Like you, Donna, I haven't read a steampunk novel and this one sounds like the perfect novel to pop my cherry.

:) VFG

I've also been wanting to try out some steampunk, since I seem to be seeing this genre being talked about everywhere now. I read Soulless, but that was very light steampunk, though the author is planning to ease readers gradually into heavier steampunk as she continues the series.

Everything else written by Katie has been fantastically fun to read and this one looks to be just as good, not into the genre yet but maybe with this one might give it a try also...

This book does sound really good. I have it on my watch for list. You will probably get it before me, so I can't wait to see what you think of it.

Susi - I lurve this cover!

EH - No, I haven't. Thanks for the heads up, I could use a new desktop wallpaper. I still have Acheron on mine. :)

BBC - Like minds think alike. :)

Leontine - Thanks, I hope it is. Looks like there might a little romance too.

Donna [F.D. Ramblings] said...

Christine - You have it already!??! I'm so jealous! I want! ;)

KC - Here is a link to Katie's site where she explains her idea of Steampunk. I think it's a good explanation.

Carol - it is a beautiful cover. :)

Donna [F.D. Ramblings] said...

VFG - It'll be a first for us both! :)

Simcha - I have heard the same thing about Soulless that it's not quite a full fledge Steampunk too. I do plan on giving it a try.

Jackie - Thanks for the heads up on Katie, good to know. This will be not only my first Steampunk but also my first book to read of Katie MacAlister.

Alterlisa - Check out the link I gave to KC for what Steampunk is.

Melissa - I hope it good as the cover looks. :)
