The book itself – very graphic, interesting, intriguing.

The translation did not deter from the story, although the flow might have hiccupped a little, but never enough to distract me from the intrigue of the story as a deal is struck to save a financially floundering and corrupt upper ruling class whose debts are forgiven in exchange for free reign to run scientific experiments, practice the calanda arts, on chosen cities. Rich with detail, full of atmosphere and a Filled with steampunk, intrigue, political machinations, secret agents, and a gutsy young lady, Hour of the Wolf by Andrius B.

The book is really unique, draws you in from the very first page and won’t let go until the very last one. No swooning ladies under the feet, unfortunately. No trivia or quizzes yet. I really liked the characters and the alternate world was believable.

I like steampunk, I am from a Slavic country, what’s not to love? I keep my fingers crossed for the wedding in the end!

The powerful family of bankers, the Rothchildshas created the Alliance of Free Cities, where alchemists pilot steampunk airships over great cities, hard working mechanics create automatons and deep in the dungeons secret societies of macabre wizards strive to create artificial intelligence. If you like alternate history fiction stories, unrelenting storytelling and steampunk adventure — Hour of the Wolf will not disappoint.


I hate being jerked out of the flow by “WHA?

It’s vivid, moving, changing. To be more precise, they are discussing country’s deficit.

Hour of the Wolf (novel) – Wikipedia

Retrieved from ” https: Day of the Plague. Fluidity is important to me while reading a work of fiction. While reading it, I occasionally wished I lived there and then, hoping I would meet some of the characters.
