The Electrical Menagerie: New Cover and Audio book.

Last year I read a really great book it’s called The Electrical Menagerie. I thought the cover was as awesome as the inside. Here’s a picture of my signed paperback alongside my goodreads review of the book.

Isn’t it cool? So old timey and steampunk.

The Electrical Menagerie by Mollie E. Reeder is the first book in a new Steampunk Fantasy series.

It recounts the struggles of Carthage and Huxley, two entertainers on their last dime and failing to pull in the crowds. Until the Celestial Palace announces auditions are being held to search for an act suitable and fantastic enough for the Princess’s upcoming birthday. These two grab on to what seems like their last hope and bet everything on winning.

I loved this book I was instantly drawn in by the characters, they are so likable and engaging. Watching Carthage and Huxley interact with each other is hilarious; their personalities are both contrary and, strangely, compatible. The robotic butler however, steals the show with his comedic timing.

The World of the celestial isles is unique, but not as hard to grasp as one might think. Surprisingly there is very little world-building dumped on the reader. It all flows smoothly with the story action. You will never notice that there is anything unlike the familiar world nor will you feel like you received a crash course in geo-metric-physics. (yes I know that is not a thing.)

Also, The Electrical Menagerie has the unique distinction of being the only book I have started in electronic format and finished in Paperback.

Well some people must not have liked that old cover as much as I did because the author decided to have a new cover made.

And now I’ve died. THE NEW COVER IS EVEN MORE AWESOME!

Just look at that steampunk Elephant! I want a copy with this cover now. But I don’t have room for two copies of the same book. This is so upsetting.

Good News

The audio book just released today too.

I listened to the sample on audible and I am seriously thinking about getting a subscription just so I can snag this one with the free trial.
