Review by: William Jackson on April 10, 2015 :
Madam Carlisle, I want more! So sorry to be a nag, but the adventures of Viola Stewart was amazingly good steampunk! However, I must say it wad too short. Not too short for the price short, because it was more than worth it. I mean too short because I wanted more stories, longer stories about tjis inquisitive oculist and the cases she gets caught up in. Karen is a fine writer from Down Under, who writes just enough to get the mind salivating. Please let there be more of Miss Stewart in the near future, for I do enjoy a great Victorian heroine.
