Phoenix Rising - Philippa Ballantine, Tee Morris 3.5 stars
It started with a bang, a female agent saving the damsel err gentleman in distress. With characters named Books and Braun this steampunk book was delightfully fun, witty, and full of great snark as the main characters were getting to know each other. Then slightly 3/4 the way through the book I felt as if I was losing my interest when it should be the most exciting page turning part of the book. I keep asking myself when is this book going to be over. I will read the next book in the series because Books reminds me a little of Buffy's Giles and hope that I will enjoy it as much as the first 2/3 of the book.
