Phoenix RisingPhoenix Rising: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel by Pip Ballantine & Tee Morris 

Total Reading Time: 4.5 hours

Review: The writing style reminded me a lot of old serials. It was a good choice for the steampunk setting because it gave the story an even more retro feel. In terms of the plot, it was okay. Some parts were more amusing than others. I can’t believe I’m saying this but this book might actually make a better movie than book. Maybe it’s that some of the descriptions of what should have been interesting machines and other steampunk tropes left something to be desired and so I wanted to be able to see them on-screen.
