Praise For Corsets & Clockwork: 13 Steampunk Romances…
Layla Schaeffer, Duxbury Free Library YALSA Teen Reader
"As soon as you open the book, you are swept into these places that are so different, yet have parallels in the real world…it seems that all of these places could replace their counterparts in the real world… There were only 13 stories. I need more! Rated: Hard to imagine a better book."
Horn Books’ Out of the Box blog 8/18/11
“…authors such as Caitlin Kittredge, Dia Reeves, Kiersten White, and Adrienne Kress write the steamier side of steampunk, where “technomagical and natural desires collide.” This naturally means lots of flirting and first kisses (with gorgeous automatons or gentlemen criminals, aboard airships, or after narrowly escaping mad inventors); it also entails deeper ethical concerns about technology, progress, and humanity’s impact on nature.”
