SILVER MIRRORS is the second book in the Apparatus Infernum series by the husband and wife writing duo, A.A. Aguirre. The two main characters are criminal investigation inspectors Janus Mikani and Celeste Ritsuko. Both are well matched in both skill and knowledge, making them a lethal team. I really enjoyed the first book so I was definitely looking forward to this one.

It’s been about half a year since I read the first book in the series so I was a little bit hazy on some of the events that had happened already. Aguirre doesn’t really spend time re-explaining the world and what has happened so far, so I think it’s very important to read this series in order. From the beginning, this book just jumps straight into the case, which involves machines, elementals and pirates.

I’m very picky when it comes to the Steampunk genre, but this one of the very few that I enjoy. I think it’s because it involves some UF and Paranormal elements in it as well so that I’m able to enjoy it more.

In addition to the mystery that runs throughout this book, there’s also some light romance. It’s a slow burn but you can definitely see aspects to it sprinkled throughout. I would’ve liked to have seen more of this but with only two books in the series, I can understand why it was done in this way. I’m hoping that there’s a chance that this series can have some sort of revival because I love the mix of genres that Aguirre has put together here.
