Review: 5* Shanghai Sparrow - as promised :)

Promises, promises... OK so I'm doing it before I lose track.

Shanghai Sparrow, by Gaie Sebold, is definitely one to look out for. Published by Solaris, out April 29, 2014, It's Steampunk-plus. It must be cos I don't really LIKE Steampunk!

 Jumping between Victorian England and a fantastical China with Fae thrown in for good measure. Result: an entertaining plot, a feisty, determined heroine and a good blending of fantasy and social history; all in all a great read and one I'll be very likely to re-read too.

I 'came down' full of enthusiasm and that feel-good factor one always hopes for but seldom actually gets? So check it out. Better yet, buy it.
