The Brass Queen is a fun steampunk romp filled with fantastical mechanical beasties, sky pirates riding dirigibles, crazy weapons, alternate dimensions and the most quirky fun characters I’ve read in a long time.
Constance is to be married, to whom, she’s not sure… regency rules require she marries by her birthday in order to keep her familial property. At her coming out ball, things go from Bridgerton level society to madcap misadventures. Constance and American cowboy / spy JF Truesdale are on a collision course that leads to some of the most entertaining banter I’ve read in a long time. Both are on the hunt for a rumored invisibility potion that could serve as a great advantage in the superiority of their respective countries. The baddie in this one is awful and yet so fun to read. The world building and amazing weapons were so fun to envision.
If you are a fain of Gail Carringer’s Soulless series or The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels definitely check this one out. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐
Thanks to NetGalley for access to this audiobook, the narrator was fabulous with storytelling and the variety of required accents. All opinions above are my own.
