    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/ Some authors really find a groove in their series where each new book is more enjoyable than the last. But Rod Duncan has done even better with The Queen Of All Crows: he's taken the Gas Lit Empire series into ...

    4 Stars I love Elizabeth so much. Sad that I now have to wait again for the next book to come out. Also, I need more John Farthing next time. Just saying. ...

    Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review Brilliant world-building, a fascinating protagonist, and a gripping story line! The Queen of All Crows begins a little while after the events of the first trilogy in Duncan's alternative history that bran...

    3.5 of 5 stars https://lynns-books.com/2018/01/04/th... The Queen of All Crows is a difficult book for me to review. I did struggle a little to get through it but in fairness to the book and the author I think that?s down to me and not the book ? hence why I?m having difficulti...

    Queen of All Crows When my request Queen of All Crows was approved on NetGalley, I was thrilled to hear that the wait to see what happened with Elizabeth Barnabus and John Farthing would be over. However, my experience reading the newest story in the world of the Gas-Lit Empire was ...

    It's 2012 and Elizabeth Barnabus is now a spy for the Patent Office, this alternate universe story is a new edition to the world of the Gas-Lit Empire that Rod Duncan established in three previous books. Fast paced, action packed, female pirates, airships being shot from the sky, wha...

    Disclaimer: I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Wow! And wow again! And then wow some more! I was already madly in love with Elizabeth (also known as Edwin) Barnabus, the cross-dressing circus-born orphan and intelligence gatherer of Duncan's first t...

    3.5 out of 5 stars My thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review. Fresh off her battle with the International Patent Court, Elizabeth Barnabus finds herself working on behalf of that very organization that brought her so muc...

    This book reads as a kind of alternative history, with many elements mixing into the fictional account. There is a protagonist who drives the narrative and enough detail to make the story believable...even more so than I find common in fantasy and science fiction. The first of a ser...

    In this fourth novel revolving around the adventures of Elizabeth Barnabus, we see our hero taken out of her element and thrown into a world adrift in the Atlantic. There's no pause in the action in this high-stakes story. An excellent addition to what aspires to be a nine-part series!...

    An excellent continuation of the Gas-Lit Empire universe, and quite a fun read. ...

    Excellent read! The author does a wonderful job of incorporating new ideas and elements in this series, which I enjoyed. Looking forward to more adventures with Elizabeth! And I especially enjoyed the elements of chance, fate, free will and unknown things. Brought to mind a conversa...

    n the year 2012 the International Patent Office continues to maintain a tight grip on the types of technology in use around most the world. When airships begin disappearing in mid-Atlantic the Patent Office need to find out what is going on. But as their authority does not extend be...

    I bought this book in the Nook store on my tablet because I love the first trilogy set in this same world. My personal review of the book is as follows: I want to start this review off by saying that I follow/have talked with the author on Twitter and I think that he is a cool guy; ...

    I literally gave squeak when I was accepted for this book! I love steampunk and I had read the series that precedes this one (The Fall of the Gas-Lit Empire, review to come!) and loved it so much! This author doesn't get enough love in my opinion! This is the story of Elizabeth Barn...

    Elizabeth, the main character, is searching for her lost friend whose ship went down over the ocean. She is willing to do just about anything to find her, including manipulating her lover who works as part of the Patent Office. The search leads her to a mysterious group of pirates who ...

    The Queen of All Crows is the first in another series of novels about Elizabeth Barnabus, the Gas-Lit Empire, the Patent Office, and all the adventures therein. I'm so emotionally attached to the characters in these books - they are real people to me with flaws and strengths. The world...

    I am not a big fan of steampunk; it has tendency to come off as pining for a horrible time (or maybe I should say the best of times and the worst of times) in American society just so people can wear bowlers, top hats, goggles, and corsets (news flash; real corsets did bad things to wo...

    i found a lot of good points and not so bad points from this book. First I really liked the change of scene bringing Elizabeth to the ocean, as well as the female pirates and their government. My first annoyance was we didn't get to see more back ground of the queens grand daugh...

    It's a good thing I found out this is the first book in a trilogy, as the ending was quite abrupt with many hanging plot lines. I was disappointed that the Fidelia character died at the end, as she could have added a lot of plot twists in the next book. Also, the death of Sian was not ...

    Rating: 4/5 A really fun, engaging story with an excellent premise. I felt like there were some pulled punches toward the end, and there were places I wanted the story to go that it shied away from. Best parts were definitely the worldbuilding, Elizabeth, and the Sargassans. The ...

    2.5 Stars. Its well written. Its an interesting premise. The first part of the book was pretty good, but then there was too much "women/s movement" discussion for my taste. Plus at the end, the granddaughters fell into the trap of "me first vs. the greater good", which is more stereot...

    Elizabeth Barnabus returns in another thriller steampunk adventure. When airships go missing in the middle of the Atlantic The patent Office want to find out what's going on. Elizabeth volunteers to work for them and before long she is mixed up with pirates and intrigue.... ...

    As enjoyable as his other Gaslit Empire books. My only problem was with getting a bit confused during the action scenes towards the latter half of the book but that's probably partially my fault as I read it all in one go into the small hours. ...

    I had no idea there were to be more stories about Ms. Barnabus and her brother - what wonderful surprise! The story is faithful in form and character to the previous trilogy, which was a relief. I look forward to seeing where this story arc takes us. ...

    I really enjoyed this book. I like all things by Duncan and the gas lit empire. Highly recommend all of Mr. Duncan's books in this series. ...

    This was a really great book - there were a few parts that felt a little rushed but it didn?t take away from my overall enjoyment of the book. Highly recommend! ...

    series continues to be enjoyable ...

    I found this quite enjoyable to a degree. Such as the way that the relationship between Elizabeth and Julia is the one which is the most important. And the secrets behind their choices. But something really lacked, such as the fact that almost no answers were even provided. Even til...

    I actually ended up finishing this book at the end of last year, but I needed to step away before writing my review. When I "closed" the book, I was antagonistic and aggressive towards it. If it hadn't been on my Kindle, I probably would have thrown it out the window, down the mountain...

    It's 2012 and Elizabeth Barnabus is now a spy for the Patent Office, this alternate universe story is a new edition to the world of the Gas-Lit Empire that Rod Duncan established in three previous books. Fast paced, action packed, female pirates, airships being shot from the sky, wha...

    In this fourth novel revolving around the adventures of Elizabeth Barnabus, we see our hero taken out of her element and thrown into a world adrift in the Atlantic. There's no pause in the action in this high-stakes story. An excellent addition to what aspires to be a nine-part series!...

    An excellent continuation of the Gas-Lit Empire universe, and quite a fun read. ...

    Excellent read! The author does a wonderful job of incorporating new ideas and elements in this series, which I enjoyed. Looking forward to more adventures with Elizabeth! And I especially enjoyed the elements of chance, fate, free will and unknown things. Brought to mind a conversa...

    I am not a big fan of steampunk; it has tendency to come off as pining for a horrible time (or maybe I should say the best of times and the worst of times) in American society just so people can wear bowlers, top hats, goggles, and corsets (news flash; real corsets did bad things to wo...

    It's a good thing I found out this is the first book in a trilogy, as the ending was quite abrupt with many hanging plot lines. I was disappointed that the Fidelia character died at the end, as she could have added a lot of plot twists in the next book. Also, the death of Sian was not ...

    Rating: 4/5 A really fun, engaging story with an excellent premise. I felt like there were some pulled punches toward the end, and there were places I wanted the story to go that it shied away from. Best parts were definitely the worldbuilding, Elizabeth, and the Sargassans. The ...

    2.5 Stars. Its well written. Its an interesting premise. The first part of the book was pretty good, but then there was too much "women/s movement" discussion for my taste. Plus at the end, the granddaughters fell into the trap of "me first vs. the greater good", which is more stereot...

    I had no idea there were to be more stories about Ms. Barnabus and her brother - what wonderful surprise! The story is faithful in form and character to the previous trilogy, which was a relief. I look forward to seeing where this story arc takes us. ...

    I really enjoyed this book. I like all things by Duncan and the gas lit empire. Highly recommend all of Mr. Duncan's books in this series. ...

    I am not a big fan of steampunk; it has tendency to come off as pining for a horrible time (or maybe I should say the best of times and the worst of times) in American society just so people can wear bowlers, top hats, goggles, and corsets (news flash; real corsets did bad things to wo...

    It's a good thing I found out this is the first book in a trilogy, as the ending was quite abrupt with many hanging plot lines. I was disappointed that the Fidelia character died at the end, as she could have added a lot of plot twists in the next book. Also, the death of Sian was not ...

    Rating: 4/5 A really fun, engaging story with an excellent premise. I felt like there were some pulled punches toward the end, and there were places I wanted the story to go that it shied away from. Best parts were definitely the worldbuilding, Elizabeth, and the Sargassans. The ...

    2.5 Stars. Its well written. Its an interesting premise. The first part of the book was pretty good, but then there was too much "women/s movement" discussion for my taste. Plus at the end, the granddaughters fell into the trap of "me first vs. the greater good", which is more stereot...

    As enjoyable as his other Gaslit Empire books. My only problem was with getting a bit confused during the action scenes towards the latter half of the book but that's probably partially my fault as I read it all in one go into the small hours. ...

    I had no idea there were to be more stories about Ms. Barnabus and her brother - what wonderful surprise! The story is faithful in form and character to the previous trilogy, which was a relief. I look forward to seeing where this story arc takes us. ...

    i found a lot of good points and not so bad points from this book. First I really liked the change of scene bringing Elizabeth to the ocean, as well as the female pirates and their government. My first annoyance was we didn't get to see more back ground of the queens grand daugh...

    It's a good thing I found out this is the first book in a trilogy, as the ending was quite abrupt with many hanging plot lines. I was disappointed that the Fidelia character died at the end, as she could have added a lot of plot twists in the next book. Also, the death of Sian was not ...

    Rating: 4/5 A really fun, engaging story with an excellent premise. I felt like there were some pulled punches toward the end, and there were places I wanted the story to go that it shied away from. Best parts were definitely the worldbuilding, Elizabeth, and the Sargassans. The ...

    2.5 Stars. Its well written. Its an interesting premise. The first part of the book was pretty good, but then there was too much "women/s movement" discussion for my taste. Plus at the end, the granddaughters fell into the trap of "me first vs. the greater good", which is more stereot...

    Elizabeth Barnabus returns in another thriller steampunk adventure. When airships go missing in the middle of the Atlantic The patent Office want to find out what's going on. Elizabeth volunteers to work for them and before long she is mixed up with pirates and intrigue.... ...

    As enjoyable as his other Gaslit Empire books. My only problem was with getting a bit confused during the action scenes towards the latter half of the book but that's probably partially my fault as I read it all in one go into the small hours. ...

    I had no idea there were to be more stories about Ms. Barnabus and her brother - what wonderful surprise! The story is faithful in form and character to the previous trilogy, which was a relief. I look forward to seeing where this story arc takes us. ...

    I really enjoyed this book. I like all things by Duncan and the gas lit empire. Highly recommend all of Mr. Duncan's books in this series. ...

    This was a really great book - there were a few parts that felt a little rushed but it didn?t take away from my overall enjoyment of the book. Highly recommend! ...

    series continues to be enjoyable ...

    I found this quite enjoyable to a degree. Such as the way that the relationship between Elizabeth and Julia is the one which is the most important. And the secrets behind their choices. But something really lacked, such as the fact that almost no answers were even provided. Even til...
