    Boneshaker von Cherie Priest (iamiam)
    iamiam: "Boneshaker" precedes "Dreadnought" in the series by this author, plus their time-lines follow this order, but neither is dependent upon the other for comprehension of story.

This is a second book in a series, and it shows. I didn't like it half as much as the first, but soldiered my way through to the end. ( )

I'm really beginning to enjoy the series for the well-drawn examples of the world of an extremely drawn out American civil war and a time period where technological advances now border on the peculiarly modernish Japanese fascination with huge walking robots. Most fascinating about this novel was the scenes aboard the train with the same name as the novel. I really felt like I was reading a travelogue that just happened to have airship crashes, zombie outbreaks, train chase scenes, and lots of spies. It was a plan dear to read. I never knew a nurse in the civil war could get herself into so much trouble just getting on commercial passenger rail.

Now that I've gone through three novels I'm not complaining as I had complained with the first one. Things don't really require resolution, the way the author is placing us deep into the story as it progresses. It's not about the tying up of loose ends. It's about showing us the world and watching how the characters in it survive or don't. I should have guessed it when we're dealing with zombies, but surprisingly enough, zombies are just for tension in the novels, not the main topic. That's a good thing, by the way. I much prefer to see character novels over a world war z treatment.

I really enjoyed reading about our nurse and her adventure, and I think I enjoyed this one all the better for remembering our erstwhile spy from book 2. It was curious and fascinating to see how we got from point a to point e. I've developed a lot of faith in the writer to know she'll get us where she hints we'll go. I suspect she could draw out some unlikely characters in the future to get some other big things accomplished. (Even if the big things are tangential to the promise of the book.)

On to the next! ( )

Really enjoying these books, mainly because--thank God!--the main characters are smart, strong, different women (mothers, nurses, etc.) It's a fun world, over all, too. ( )

I liked this more than the first book in the series, [b:Boneshaker|1137215|Boneshaker (The Clockwork Century, #1)|Cherie Priest|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1433161048s/1137215.jpg|1124460]. It is firmly an adult read, where the last book could have gone either way between teen read or an adult read. There was more nuance to the lead characters and it didn't have such a firm grasp on right and wrong. I'm glad I decided to soldier on with this series! ( )

Liked all of it but the zombies, my least favorite part of the previous book as well. (Why do other people like zombie books?) ( )

Down in the laundry room with the bloody-wet floors and the ceiling-high stacks of sheets, wraps, and blankets, Vinita Lynch was elbows-deep in a vat full of dirty pillowcases because she'd promised-she'd sworn on her mother's life-that she'd find a certain windup pock watch belonging to Private Hugh Morton before the device was plunged into a tub of simmering soapy water and surely destroyed for good.
