    One thought on “The Feaster From the Stars”

    1. I didn't read the blurb before reading. I liked the first book, the story, the world and both protagonists. And I was awarded this time too. Well, there were a couple of annoying things but they in no way ruin the story overall. Plus, with a title like this you just know it's going to be good. I mean, The Feaster From The Starsis a great title! The story is Lovecraftian with a bit of fae thrown in, mixed with a dash or romance and a great deal of horror. The Underground has become a dangerous pl [...]

    2. Throwing all sorts of sci-fi-, faerie-, steampunk- and mystery elements together made for an unique, but ultimately very disappointing book with Blackwood & Harrington’s first mystery, Alan K. Baker’s debut novel “the Martian Ambassador”. The clunky steampunk novel from 2011 tried to do too many things at once, threw some poor dialogue and less-than-stellar prose into the mix, and didn’t get me too excited for its follow-up, “the Feaster from the Stars”.So imagine my surprise w [...]

    3. Lovely! It's not amazeballs, so that's why it didn't get 5 stars. But I like the concept of this world and it's very nice. Also Sophia is a real lady. She doesn't take no for an answer and is bad ass enough to do shit on her own. You don't need to read the 1st book to be able to read this one. They are more stand alone stories but with the same few characters :)

    4. Vermakelijk. De grote verrassingen zijn er een beetje uit, hier en daar voelt het verhaal een tikje geforceerd. Maar al met al vermakelijk.

    5. This was a really good follow up to 'The Martian Ambassador' which I read a couple of months ago. The story was a little bit over descriptive at times but Alan Baker writes with a style that keeps you engaged so it didn't end up putting me off the book. His books have certainly given me a good introduction to 'Steampunk'. It's a genre I would never really thought about reading in the past. It will give me the impetus to search out other books in the genre in future. :)

    6. honestly i love this series! a wonderful world has been elaborated upon in this series and with wonderful references to John Dee, Edward Kelly, Marcus Aurelius and more. Anybody who loves steampunk should try this series immediately!

    7. This was an entertaining read. I haven't read the first book in the series, but it wasn't difficult to catch up. Steampunk, Victorian literary references, space zeppelins and fairies?

    8. This is a great mixture of steampunk and science fiction. The characters introduced in the first novel continue to develop. The plot is exciting. A thoroughly good read.
