Despite being a re-telling of the Phantom of the Opera, the steampunk elements gives it a number of twists and makes it fresh. Well written with three-dimensional and interesting characters. Couldn't put it down once I started it.
Absolutely topnotch. Brilliana Stethem is an original character and the steampunk era she lives in is fascinating and fully three-dimensional. I got part-way through the first book in the Effectuator Series and immediately bought the rest. One of the best reads I've had in a while. Disappointed me only when I reached the end and there wasn't any more to read. More Brilliana, please!!!
Much better than average novel in the super hero genre. Characters are three dimensional and human. Scenes are well realized and the story moves along quickly. I look forward to the next in the series.
Another enjoyable romp by Lindsay Buroker. Interesting characters, witty dialogue, and a fast-paced story. It also showed a very different side of (and probably redeemed) a previously introduced character.

Wow! A real page-turner that I couldn't put down once I'd started. Interesting three-dimensional characters with their own backstories. Good action, good writing, look forward to more.
A real page-turner. I immediately bought the rest of the books in the series as soon as I finished the first and now I'm waiting for more. A little far-fetched in some ways (too many different bad guys) and she's a little slow in realizing the danger she's in, but a very enjoyable read with interesting characters.
