Moorlander has all the ingredients of a good steampunk novel, but it moves too slowly.


Industrial rivalry, plots for murder, intrigue, politics and a world where wondrous devices are engineered: Moorlander has it all.

At first glance.

The first in a series by Robert T. Bradley, this book takes you into a world where plots unfold all around the main characters.

The author has absolutely done his best to create a fully developed world with fleshed-out characters. It’s great that we’re not lacking backstory. But there is too much of a good thing.

If you’re into descriptive novels that takes their time to set each scene, you’ll probably like this. If you prefer something faster pace, this is not the book for you.

Also, if you are sensitive to violence against women, you may want to avoid this. (I won’t go into more details, because I don’t want to spoil the plot, but I feel fair warnings apply.)

If the pace picks up in the next volume, this could have the makings of a good series.
