This is a quickie review. Full review available at The Romanceaholic Finally! A Steampunk novel that includes both airships and welding goggles (albeit in very small doses)! One thing that bugs me with the explosion of so called “Steampunk romances” these days are the stories where the steampunk elements are practically nonexistent, or play such a minor part that they merely act as set dressing. Steam & Sorcery, while not as “Steampunk” as, say, The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook, does rely heavily on automatons and clockwork devices, and as I mentioned, actually had an airship that made a very brief appearance. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. There were just enough Steampunk elements to keep my interest without distracting me with trying to keep up with which implausible inventions were going to be introduced next, and the paranormal elements added a delicious bit of flavor without distracting from the more important inner dynamics of the Hadrian household. 4.5/5 Stars
This is my bible in Human Resource field. I am highly influenced by Peter Senge. I studies this book 15 years ago as a part of my MBA curriculum and found it impressive. Over a period of time, I have only become more aware and the disciplines have made so much more sense. I recently read it one more time and found many things that I can use even now.
