“A.A. Aguirre has created a world that was easy for me to fall into and lose myself”
~ Under the Covers

This book has been on my bookshelf for what seems like forever and I feel terrible for not reading this until now because it’s an amazing book! The author is actually Ann Aguirre, a favorite author of mine who has written some of my favorite characters and her husband, Andres. This duo has really created a wonderful world here. It’s Steampunk noir with a touch of a Urban Fantasy feel and some romance thrown in. You really get a bit of everything in this story!

The entire series is based on Janus Mikani and Celeste Ritsuko, partners in the Criminal Investigation Division or the CID. When a woman goes missing, they begin an investigation to search for her. Along the way, more mysterious things are happening and as other discoveries are made, Mikani and Ritsuko are tested.

First off, I have to talk about the writing in this one. It’s flawless. FLAWLESS. Aguirre has always been a fantastic writer but I was really floored with the way they were able to create such a lush world while progressing the story and keeping readers engaged. There’s just enough descriptions to paint a picture of the world, but it never weighs down the rest of the book. This book is pretty action-packed and with the Steampunk and Paranormal aspects thrown in, you have a world that’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

Mikani and Ritsuko’s professional relationship kind of reminds me of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. As they follow their leads, they almost seem to move in sync with one another. They are finishing each other’s sentences and always seem to be aware of what the other person is thinking or doing. I can’t wait to see what Aguirre has in store for them in the next book!

I’ve always been very picky when it comes to Steampunk novels, but A.A. Aguirre has created a world that was easy for me to fall into and lose myself. The Apparatus Inferunum series is definitely one to watch out for!
