The Affinity Bridge takes the reader on a journey to a steampunk Victorian England where progress is distinctively steam-powered, but where danger may lurk at every misty corner.
It is a diverse plot and it is only thanks to the skilled writing of George Mann that the novel does not drown in sheer overload.
Don’t mistake this for a steampunk version of Sherlock Holmes, even though there are some similarities. There is mystery aplenty.
If you’re looking for an awesome steampunk detective novel set in London, this is one you definitely want to consider.
On a side note, I don’t know whether or not this has anything to do with my laptops, but I found that you can download the three PDF short stories that fit in between several of the novels via Wikipedia on a tablet but not a laptop (go figure).
Or, if you want to simply try out some of the adventures before buying a book, you could download “The Hambleton Affair” and “The Shattered Teacup”. They give a good impression of the actual books without giving away spoilers.
I would, however, recommend that once you properly start the series with the books, you do it in the correct order, because otherwise you will miss out on some parts.
