Narrated by Elizabeth Knowelden

Series: The Steampunk Proper Romances

Run Time: 9 hrs and 32 mins


Hazel Hughes meets an eccentric uncle who happens to be a Count and super rich and mysterious. She’s also got a sister she only sees in visions and the mirror. Sam MacInnes is a handsome doctor whose station is far above Hazel’s. She works for him as a medical assistant of sorts. (She’s a healer with perfect recall.)

Additional Comments:

– The worldbuilding aspects were cool. It’s a place with magic and mystery, fantastic tech, yet stuck in a time with bored rich people with oddball rules of courtship.

– It got boring. I had it playing at 2.3 speed for the most part, but sections still managed to drag. I know the worldbuilding took some time, but the story’s essentially in 3 sections. The first is terribly slow and hardly worth slogging through except for those gems about the world. The second is skippable when they’re on the submarine to Romania. The third is shorter but interesting. There’s finally some action.

– The Coppergate tower thing doesn’t kick in until the very end, which is fine. I’m glad there was a tie-in.

– The romance was so-so. The only thing holding them back from each other was a disparity in station and that got remedied in the first third of the book.

– The mystery of what the Count wants and so forth was predictable.

– The book had awesome narration. Would definitely listen to the narrator again.

– I found the book on audible plus. Wouldn’t have checked it out otherwise.  

– There was a part at the end I had to yell at the character. She’s a flipping healer.


The odd aspects of the book were cool. The “normal” portions dragged, a lot.
