This was an awesome steampunk novel set in one of the most interesting worlds I've read in a while. The heroine is a no-nonsense, kick-butt police inspector. The hero is a pirate who is very goal-oriented and a little on the possessive side. And you just have to love the supporting characters! Scarsdale, I love you! How can you go wrong with steam-powered machines, airships, pirates, nanites, and zombies all set in Victorian England? The answer is you can't. I can't wait to read the next book in this series!This book does contain sexual content.
