Review – Supernatural Devices

supernatural devicesSupernatural Devices – a steampunk scarlett novel

by Kailin Gow

I found this little beauty at a friends of the library bookstore.  I had never heard of it, but liked the cover, so here we are  🙂

This YA book was tons of action, a smattering of Sherlock Holmes, Victorian England and lots of paranormal activity.  Once Scarlett lands, there is no resting, barely a meal, a couple of love interests, some steamy kissing and many revelations.  It is a super fast, entertaining and lively.  Quite the rollicking adventure though not a lot of steampunk gadgets, but the feeling was there and there is a power struggle.

The one thing that was irritating is that all the guys Scarlett meets think she is so special, as a love interest, I think there end up being four interested in her!?!  Also, the vampires don’t really act their age…a little “boys will be boys” I guess?  🙂  But like I said, the book flies so you roll your eyes a little and quickly move on.  As a teenager I would have eaten it up, but now that I am old and jaded I have to scoff a bit.  lol

So, an excellent start to a new series. The story has just begun, the players made their moves and the game is afoot.  You never know who is being truthful and who isn’t, I am sure more revelations will happen as the story progresses, which means it is twisty and will contain a few surprises.  3.5 stars in a clockwork pendant. The gears turn but it runs on magic.

I love to read! I always have a book or four going, I have more books in my to-be-read pile than I can read in a year and yet I continue to haunt the bookstores. I have a problem, but I somehow soldier on. I enjoy talking books, so pass on your recommendations and thoughts - I would love to hear them.
