    This was my introduction to steampunk fiction I ve always been interested but never actually read anything in the genre, but this one just sounded too good not to try, and the fact that it s set in a fantasy world rather than the typical steampunk setting really hit home with a fantasy fanatic like myself.Characters Memorable and colorful characters throughout The main antagonist remains behind the scenes for the most part, so a little building his character would have been nice, but it s forgi [...]

    So let s start off by saying that I love steampunk and I do not see enough of it in YA So that made me so happy when I heard about this novel I was on board and ready for it I was not let down, I love the story and the characters I love the world I love how even though Zaira was pushed to the limit and dealt a horrible hand, she kept moving on She didn t once give up She pushed through and I enjoyed her character growth I also loved how much I laughed during this book, it was fun A fun adventure [...]

    This book is a solid adventure story, with some good humor and real personality Before I say anything else, in the interest of full disclosure, I am not a fan of Steampunk I read this book solely because I enjoyed the author s other book, Rescue Run This book is definitely Steampunk I ve had discussions with folks who are hardcore into that sort of thing and they seem to like this book It doesn t go into extreme detail on the inner workings of every device, which would have really turned me off, [...]

    I just finished reading an absolutely fun, action filled steampunk novel FOR STEAM AND COUNTRY was written by Jon Del Arroz It is the kind of novel that, when you sit down to start reading time gets away from you As a reader I was sucked right into the story for two very key, and important readers First, Arroz has created some of the most memorable, and likeable characters I have seen in some time You will absolutely fall in love with the lead, Zaira von Monocle She is a farmer, who is forced to [...]

    As a steampunk fan, I m loving the recent renaissance of fresh settings and ideas coming from steampunk authors Despite this being John Del Arroz s first foray into the genre, For Steam and Country is no exception An action packed adventure in the spirit of John Scalzi and J.K Rowling, this is a real page turner The plot moves briskly and the characters pop on every page This is a lot of fun, for a YA or adult reader, and I can t wait to read the next adventure of Zaira von Monocle

    Jon Del Arroz s steampunk YA novel, For Steam and Country, shows a lot of promise, but unfortunately it too often typifies what I like least about both steampunk and YA.Sixteen year old Zaira von Monocle has lived alone on her family farm since her mother died and her father disappeared All that changes when her father s attorney and a confidant of the king Mr du Gearsmith arrives to inform her that, after two years, her father has been declared officially dead Meaning Zaira inherits his airship [...]

    With a heroine as a main character, I fully approached this book expecting it to be another Mary Sue story In fact, the initial part of the book setups itself as a Mary Sure story Still, I couldn t have been wrong The characters develop themselves rationally and barring one or two plot twists that are too obvious to be called twists the story flows swiftly and naturally with a barely a hiccup And then the book ends and you are left amazed and wanting I fully recommend it for those wanting to a [...]

    the auther has some fun ideas and does create some cool atmosphere but the plot plays it way to safe maybe I m not the target audience for this but the one thing I did enjoy was the cute ferret.

    This was a fantastically fun read Arroz starts with a bang literally , and the pace only ramps up from there from earthquake, to lawyers, to flying and crashing airships, to foreign invasion and that s only the beginning Our Heroine, Zaira, is an engaging, delightful young lady, a character I really appreciated for even for her mistakes than for the things she gets right Her adventures and misadventures with the airship Lilliana and her crew make for a delightful romp through a world of steam p [...]

    I still can t decide if I liked this book It s a good enough story, and the characters are interesting enough, and there s even enough action to make me happy, but there s something that makes me question if I really liked it or not Part of the problem I think is every problem that arises for our protagonist, a 16 year old girl named Zaira von Monocle, ends up solved easily Airship crew overwhelmed and captured No problem, we ll just blow their airship to bits and capture them instead Captured a [...]

    I love steampunk, its storytelling, its aesthetic Having read authors like Cherie Priest, Jay Lake, and Jonathan Howard, I d come to expect a level of intelligence and refinement to the prose that this novel lacked Simple declarative sentences can be effective in the hands of an author who understands subtlety and subtext Mr Del Arroz is not that author His plodding, uninspired storytelling moves from scene to scene, teeming with cliches and dull expressions Even his protagonist s name Zaira von [...]

    Judge this book by its excellent cover Although the attractive steam punk woman on the cover did not seem to represent any particular person in the book, it is such a good cover I must say it got my attention I have really enjoyed the steam punk genre and this Book does a great job of portraying tradition the characters are entirely entertaining I highly recommend this book for a good read.

    High AdventureSteampunk on a very different world, not just Victorian England What happens when the daughter of a famous hero acquires an airship This could easily have been made into a graphic novel, but instead the author drew it with just enough words to let our imaginations finish the picture A fun read that I consumed in a single night.

  15. Jon

    This is the fun, action packed fantasy adventure that I always wanted out of Steampunk but couldn t quite find in the literature It s a love letter to the genre, to the cosplay, and to the people of the Steampunk culture who have wondrous imaginations.

  16. Brett Thomasson

    The era between the Franco Prussian War in 1870 and World War I seems to make a good time frame for young adult steampunk sci fi, as there are still enough old fashioned social mor s to keep the sexual content relatively chaste but things have begun to progress enough that plucky female heroines can rise to the occasion and demonstrate heroism through their courage and intelligence So Jon Del Arroz begins his stories of Zaira von Monocle in such a time, as her native Rislandia faces off against [...]

    Speaking as a conservative to whom I would expect Del Arroz means to appeal, this is one of the worst books I have read.The heroine is utterly incompetent, and it s supposed to be one of those non Mary Sues, but instead wholly fails to understand that concept, or the concepts of Capitalism, or Monarchy, or anything.Everything about this novel is irritating The idea I think is that Mary Sues are bad, therefore we should have the opposite of a Mary Sue, which is in the theory of this novel a girl [...]
