great aspect of this bookSteampunk is a sub genre of science fiction, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s wikipedia definition I ADORE it I m a huge sci fi fan so this book not only made me drool reading Fan and Will bed scenes , made me almost scream of fear, but also made me very happy reading about the fictional machines.5 stars and it s a pity i read it so quickly It s so good I ll read it again One time is not enough BTW Fan has mismatching eyes One violet and another green FanuleOMG I REALLY LOVED HIM This could have been amazing I was really, really enjoying this book in the beginning It was unique It was dark It was snarky And I was really loving the world and the characters the author created But then I got bored It went from sexual tension to insta love And I never felt the urgency of the mystery Where some things were detailed, others were glossed over and never explained view spoiler I never understood the importance of the ribbons hide spoiler I was told about mos This could have been amazing I was really, really enjoying this book in the beginning It was unique It was dark It was snarky And I was

chance to read about them I think this could have been amazing if it would have been longer anddeveloped I feel like there was a huge opportunity for these characters to be memorable but they aren t.In the end, I was never fully invested in the romance or the mystery But I loved the whole idea Mongrel had been sitting, gathering dust on my Kindle for quite some time The first time I tried to read it, I just wasn t in that mood Having been chosen for me in the LGBT Fantasy Group challenge, and having just finished Third Daughter, an awesome and diverse non Eurocentric steampunk novel, I was finally in the mood for something that stylistically reminded me the brilliant Michael Moorcock s Dancers At the End of Time.That is a VERY good thing.I love books that dump me into an unfamil Mongrel had been sitting, gathering dust on my Kindle for quite some time The first time I tried to read it, I just wasn t in that mood Having been chosen for me in the LGBT Fantasy Group challenge, and having just finished Third Daughter, an awesome and diverse non Eurocentric steampunk novel, I was finally in the mood for something that stylistically reminded me the brilliant Michael Moorcock s Dancers At the End of Time.That is a VERY good thing.I love books that dump me into an unfamiliar world and make me want to be there The world of Mongrel did just that While there were definitely parallels to amiddle class lower middle class London, the towns with such amusing names as Taintwell and Purinton sound as if they could be actual English villages In this world there are Pures humans with no special powers and Mongrels not fully human and with powers unknown The Pures fear and discriminate against the Mongrels No shock there, right But it s far worse than mere laws as Fanule and Will discover There s a even grimmer fate in store for the denizens of Taintwell.Fanule Perfidor the Dog King, his friends allies are finely drawn and feel like real people, not fantasy beings Fan is a wonderful hero loyal, loving and yet beset by his own personal demons He doesn t dwell upon them and when his people need him, Fan takes great risk to lend his assistance His power makes him the most feared of the Mongrels, which also makes him a target It takes a certain something for me to like a vampire character, considering what most of fiction has reduced them to, but Clancy Marrowbone wonderful name that has joined The Fountain Pen Diva s highly exclusive pantheon of favourite undead, populated by such notables as Atta Olivia Clemens, The Count Saint Germain, Lord Akeldama, Sonja Blue and Shori along with dear Lestat of course And normally, I look askance at M M romance in which one of the characters is slighter shorter weaker etc than the hero that trope is quite problematic when done incorrectly , but Will Marchman was evenly crafted He was just as strong and passionate as his half human half beast lover.The steampunk world was gritty and grimy, which led to its sense of realism The steam has to come from somewhere, coal It s going to be dirty The sex is sweet, hot and written in a wonderfully florid style reminiscent of Victorian erotica with a sort of tongue firmly in cheek manner.There are two other novels, which can be read alone, and I think I deserve a second helping of my darling Clancy Marrowbone This was one of those amazingly descriptive books where you don t even feel like you are reading any The world building was so well done It s really hard to find a quality steam punk themed story in general and in this genre specifically, but this one was perfect So many sci fi steam punk fantasy books over do it with the world building so you get taken out of the story as you try and keep up with all the terminology, geography and characters Or they are made so campy that you can t take This was one of those amazingly descriptive books where you don t even feel like you are reading any The world building was so well done It s really hard to find

the story as you try and keep up with all the terminology, geography and characters Or they are made so campy that you can t take it seriously at all It should be fun, but not at the expense of the story.The characters were strong and unique and the heroes were flawed but noble They were complex enough to feel realistic Fan and Will complimented each other well and brought out the best traits in one another I really liked Simon too, he was just so lost really, but towards the end found his way and I can t wait to read the next in the series that focuses on him and Clancy I think another thing that really added to the depth of the story overall was that while it was a romance between Fan and Will, it was also the building of some meaningful friendships amongst some really lonely characters.And the language was completely swoon worthy Not in a flowery romantic sense although there was that too but the names of the people and the places were perfectly fitting with the genre without being over the top The descriptions of specific events as well as daily life painted a vivid picture of the story and I could totally see every scene that was described.One thing I would have liked developed a littlewere the bad guys I love a good bad guy and the whole conflict could have been a lotintense and scary than it was The villains didn t seem to put up too much of a fight at the end, but I enjoyed everything else so much I suspended disbelief completely and got over it Overall and a very unique story I would re read and recommend I was completely surprised by how much I enjoyed this book I haven t read too much steampunk The imagination that went into this story and how beautifully Snow was able to translate that into words was amazing I loved the world building and must admit there are a few new words to add to my vocabulary, these words only added to the tangibility of the world.I am a sucker for vulnerable heroes and Perfidor had all the characteristics that I

was interesting, exciting, and completely disturbing and I really think this story could have been longer to fully capture and complete all the details associated with the plot and world building I was sad when it ended and so want to readof this world in the future This story reels in the fantasy steam punk world between residents of Taintwell with their Branded Mongrels and Purinton with their pure humans Fanule Perfidor is the Eminence of Taintwell, The Dog King, and he is investigating the case of dissapearing mongrels and the whispers of injustice punishment for mongrels that are being

punk world between residents of Taintwell with their Branded Mongrels and Purinton with their pure humans Fanule Perfidor is the Eminence of Taintwell, The Dog King, and he is investigating the case of dissapearing mongrels and the whispers of injustice punishment for mongrels that are being caught To get to this, Fanule needs to get information about Alphonse Hunzinger, the owner of Hunzinger s Mechanical Circus He isn t welcome there, none of the Branded Mongrels are, but Fanule catches the sight of young William Marchman, a medicine salesman who works booth in the circus, and he takes his chances At first, Fanule only approaches the young man to ask for information But when the two meets again in a bar, attraction cannot be denied, and an affair is born Soon, William decides to help Fanule along with of a bounty hunter, Simon Bentcross, and a vampire, Clancy Marrowbone to uncover the sinister project of Alphonse and Purinton s mayor to getting rid of mongrels This story reminds me of K.Z Snow s Utopia X series in terms of vivid imagery of fantasy world and appealing characters I start this a bit slowly, because it takes time for me to get into the realm of the story, but once I do, I find I cannot stop I must say I m quite taken of sweet William he may portray innocence of the young but he also has the bravery of a soldier, loyalty of a knight, and love of the beloved I adore him immensely Fan is a remarkable character He carries the baggage of all Taintwell citizens hope for justice on his shoulder but he is still a fair man Fan struggles with his mercurial moods and he needs potion to function William s presence in his side becomes Fan s second wing that keeps him balanced.The cast of Fanule s aids are charming the vampire Clancy Marrowbone who kind of reminds me of my favorite vampire in the Utopia X series, oh dear Ridley and his surprisingly human lover, Simon Bentcross though secondary but nonetheless alive on the pages and as important as Fan and William.It s an intriguing romantic and well crafted tale another satisfaction This was a lot of fun A mix of fantasy, paranormal, historical, steampunk It defies genres by blending so many of them seamlessly While the story took a little while to get into as figuring out all the different terminology and structure of the world was a complicated, nonetheless it was pure enjoyment I really enjoyed the relationship developing between William and Fan in spite of the insta lovey nature of it They were a good balance I particularly liked that Fan wasn t perfect His mongr This was a lot of

disorder William is so patient and sweet, but tenacious as all get out.The gothic style and creepy carnival were a wonderful backdrop for the mystery as our heroes struggled to figure out just what all was going on Loads of fun and well worth the read Definitely want to readof this series
