Review: The Iron Duke (Iron Seas #1) by Meljean Brook

Rating: 2 Stars

The Iron Duke is categorised as ‘steampunk’. I have no idea what steampunk is as a book genre, so I’m winging this review. I decided to pick this book up because two of my other much-loved authors (Elizabeth Hunter and Jeaniene Frost) gave it stellar ratings and reviews on Goodreads, so I thought, why not?

My question, after reading it, was plainly just why?

The premise of the book in itself was interesting: an interesting world, with some intriguing history and an unusual society. Think Pirates of the Caribbean vs. Sherlock Holmes

It was the story line and the characterisation that I had the most problems with.
