“Everything comes to a head in Of Silk and Steam it takes us on a journey full of twists, turns and heart break, you will need to read it to find out if it also ends in triumph! ” ~ Under the Covers

Finally. I feel like I have been in a drought, reading books that have barely quenched my thirst and Bec McMaster has led me to an oasis. In the fifth and final installment of the London Steampunk series, McMaster ups the stacks as she gives us Leo Barrons and Lady Aramina’s  romance, which is brimming with adventure and intrigue as we see all our characters, including the dastardly Prince Consort’s, plans comes to a climax.

Bec McMaster never fails in penning a book that fully submerges you into her world, as the series has continued the detail has become richer and more complex, the ploys more intricate and far reaching and the characters both old and more recent additions have changed and grew. It was with a certain sense of sadness that I finished Of Silk and Steam, knowing it would be the last in the series and perhaps the last I would see of the characters that I have grown to love.

One character that has intrigued me since the start of the series is Lady Aramina, thought to be the only female blue blood, and the only one who is a Duchess. We finally discover her true intentions and loyalties behind her ice-cold facade. We also see the aforementioned ice-cold facade melt under the heat of Barrons’ pursuit and frankly who could blame her? Leo and Mina had some sizzling chemistry both emotionally and physically, it pulled them together like magnets creating not only a sexy read but a passionate one.

But, McMaster not only writes a great romance, but a fantastic story as well, the whole cast of characters come in to play as they take a role in the final confrontation. This book not only gives you pulse raising romance, but edge of your seat action as the whole of London joins the fight, creating a truely exciting read. Everything comes to a head in Of Silk and Steam it takes us on a journey full of twists, turns and heart break, you will need to read it to find out if it also ends in triumph!
