The Iron Wyrm Affair (Bannon and Clare)

The Iron Wyrm Affair - Lilith Saintcrow The world building in this book was fantastic - a gritty, magical yet logical, Victorian Britannia that was a joy to explore. The character development was equally as wonderful; Saintcrow's characters - Emma Bannon, Archibald Clare, and the rest - simply LEAP off the page. But, I didn't connect with those characters. I don't know why - maybe they were both a little cold and unemotional for me - but I just didn't connect. Will I read the sequel? Probably, but I won't be waiting with bated breath.
