I recently read my first steampunk novel - Phoenix Rising (A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel) - and really enjoyed it. I couldn't resist a book where the two MC's are Agent Wellington Thornhill Books, Esquire and Eliza D. Braun. Books & Braun! LOL! The characters were vivid and entertaining (though a bit stereotypical at times) - reminding me a bit of early Mulder and Scully in how they played off each other. Except that "Mulder" was the female MC and "Scully" was the male MC. I'd like to check out more of the steampunk genre. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd greatly appreciate your input.
