Book Description

4 Dec 2012 Girl Genius Novels (Book 2)
Intrigue! Subterfuge! Circus Folk! In a time when the Industrial Revolution has escalated into all-out warfare, mad science rules the world... with mixed success. With the help of Krosp, Emperor of All Cats, Agatha has escaped from the massive airship known as Castle Wulfenbach. After crashing their escape dirigible, Agatha and Krosp fall in with Master Payne's Circus of Adventure, a traveling troupe of performers dedicated to staging Heterodyne shows-dramatizations of the exploits of Bill and Barry Heterodyne and their allies-who are unaware of Agatha's connection to the Heterodyne line. Pursued by the ruthless Baron Klaus Wulfenbach, his handsome son Gil, and their minions (not to mention Othar Tryggvassen, Gentleman Adventurer), Agatha hides in plain sight among the circus folk, servicing their clanks and proving herself adept in performing the role of Lucrezia Mongfish, nemesis to-and later wife of-Bill Heterodyne. She also begins training under Zeetha, swordmistress and princess of the lost city of Skifander. Together, Agatha, Krosp, and the performers travel across the treacherous wasteland of war-torn Europa, towards Mechanicsburg, and the ancestral home of the Heterodynes-Castle Heterodyne. But with many perils standing in her way-including Wulfenbach's crack troops, mysterious Geisterdamen, savage Jagermonsters, and the fabled Storm King-it's going to take more than a spark of Mad Science for Agatha to get through... From Phil and Kaja Foglio, creators of the multiple WCCA and Hugo Award-winning webcomic Girl Genius, comes Agatha H and the Clockwork Princess, a gaslamp fantasy filled to bursting with Adventure! Romance! And Mad Science!

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, fast-paced and fun! 10 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover
A well-done novelization of the Girl Genius comic. A madcap steampunk adventure with loads of charming characters - I especially like how many different female characters they are, both sympathetic and villaneous, and that they're all different. The novel is much better than the first book in the series, meatier and with several fun scenes added for those who already know the comic. If one doesn't, it's still a great swashbuckling adventure, warmly recommended! Also, the hardcover edition is really pretty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stands well on its own 21 April 2012
By Terrell T. Gibbs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I usually tend to shy away from novelizations, but this is an unusual novelization--generally, novels get made in to comic books, not the other way around. But I've enjoyed Phil and Katya Foglio's "Girl Genius" series (available online for free, or from Amazon as a set of handsome graphic novels) so much that I decided to give the novels a try. I've read both this one and its predecessor, and while they tell the same story as the graphic novels, and while I miss Phil Foglio's cartooning, I find the novels quite enjoyable on their own terms and very much complementary, enabling the Foglios to develop the characters a bit more that was possible within the constraints of the comic book format.

For those who are new to the series, the Agatha/Girl Genius series is an extended dramatic farce set in a steampunk alternate europe in which scientific genius is almost always accompanied by Victor Frankenstein-style mania often with unfortunate consequences for the populace at large. Clockwork and biotechnology (of the Frankenstein style) is developed to a high level, but electronics has been neglected. The plot is baroquely complicated, with a huge cast of unique and engaging characters that the Foglios somehow manage to keep in play. The Foglios' flair for comic dialog is very much in evidence. Be sure to read the humorous and informative footnotes (which unfortunately are not hyperlinked in the Kindle edition). The novels follow the plot of the "Girl Genius" series pretty much exactly. The first novel "Agatha H. and the Clockwork Princess" was quite good, but with this sequel the Foglios (and the story) really hit their stride.

I'm eagerly anticipating future additions to both the graphic novel and prose novel versions of the story of Agatha.

Agatha H and the Clockwork Princess

Amazon.com: $11.99, Kindle edition, contains DRM
BN.com: $13.74, Nook edition, contains DRM
Baen.com: $6.00, any ebook format, DRM-free

For shame, Amazon and B&N! You can't even pretend the publisher set that price.

Stars are for the book itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Genius! 4 Jun 2012
By antryg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Right from the start, I'll tell you that I am a fan of Girl Genius. I read the webcomic. I've bought all of the paperback graphic novels. I also bought the first hardback novel. So why buy the book when you can get the webcomic for free?

Have you ever seen a movie and said "It was good but the book was better."? The comic and graphic novels give you amazing artwork and colors. (Yes! Go buy them as well!) This novel allows a much greater depth and insight into the story. The humor and jokes are still present. Yet this book provides so much more. Important details which a picture can only hint at, are lovingly described and expand on things which you thought you knew (if you are already a Girl Genius fan).

Even if you don't like to read because words scare you and paper makes your head hurt; you will want to read this book. It is filled with action, adventure, a few kisses and science!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't miss weekend read 27 May 2012
By wyked moose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My second venture into the Steampunk world. Thoroughly enjoyable and very easy read. Hilariously funny stuff. Especially the heavily accented dialog from the Jagar monster characters. The footnotes added to this installment of the series was a stroke of Spark. Curiously, the authors name, Phil Foglio. Could it be an homage to Philious fogg?

3.0 out of 5 stars read the online graphic novel or buy the graphic novel 2 Dec 2013
By C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love the online graphic novel and faithfully follow it, unfortunately without the pictures this novel tends to be somewhat two dimensional and is a good overview of the online story but does not do it justice.
