Book Review: Clockworks and Corsets by Regina Riley

Clockworks and CorsetsClockworks and Corsets by Regina Riley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The all female crew, except for the captain’s pet cabin boy, of the airship Merry Widow set off to retrieve a renowned scientist’s last invention from his abandoned lab somewhere in the South Pacific. That’s that basic story, and does well to frame this tale’s more bawdy elements. These include shenanigans between the captian and her cabin boy, as well as some rather bizarre happenings in a bordello. If you would rather not have any spice with your steampunk, then Clockworks and Corsets is not for you; however, if you rather enjoy a bit of bump and grind with your gears and gadgets, then this is a delightful book to add to your collection. The plot elements are well paced, the characters just quirky enough to set them apart and the intimate scenes are hot enough to boil water.

I get the feeling this story is intended as the begining of a series. If so I look forward to the next installment.
