Book Description

18 Jan 2013 Girl Genius 2
After escaping from the massive airship known as Castle Wulfenbach, Agatha falls in with a travelling troupe of performers, where she begins training under Zeetha, swordmistress and princess of the lost city of Skifander. With Wulfenbach on her trail, it's going to take more than a spark of Mad Science for Agatha to traverse the treacherous wasteland of war-torn Europa.

Product Description

Review

"I have never laughed out loud as often with a book... I couldn t put it down, it remained glued to my fingers the minute I got into the first chapter and I loved every word. The writing is immensely clever, extremely funny and perfectly balanced and constantly laced with heavy dollops of that zany fun in every single line. --Fangs For The Fantasy

I heartily recommend everyone to get this book. It s awesome. --Fangs for the Fantasy

"If the main negative a book has is that it leaves you wanting more then that s a good sign. I strongly recommend the Agatha H series to fellow geeky gamers. --Geek Native

This review is based on an advance review copy, supplied by the publisher.

The first thing I noticed, when I picked up this second book in the Girl Genius series, was that it was the same price as the first. When you consider it's not too far off double the size of the first one, that's a pretty good deal! The other thing I noticed was that I actually liked the cover better than I liked the cover of the first volume. Whether this is because it's better, or simply because at this stage I'm less disappointed that they didn't go with Phil Foglio's own art, I'm not sure.

It picks up where 'Agatha H and the Airship City' leaves off, following Agatha as she escapes from Baron Wulfenbach. As with the first, it's a perfect melding of fantasy, steampunk, comedy and adventure. While sharing many tropes with steampunk, co-author Kaja Foglio prefers to describe it as "gaslamp fantasy". Apparently, she accidentally made up that term, while misremembering a description of the work of Jules Verne and H. Rider Haggard--which seems strangely fitting in the way it mirrors the methods of the less accomplished (or slightly madder) "sparks" in this world. If you imagine a high fantasy novel, where the wizards, witches and magic have been replaced by mad scientists and their dangerous creations, you'll get the idea.

The travelling carnival that is more than it seems is a classic concept in fantasy literature, and the authors make great use of it in this book. Agatha falls in with Master Payne's Circus of Adventure, a travelling troupe of performers dedicated to staging Heterodyne shows--dramatizations of the exploits of Bill and Barry Heterodyne and their allies. They, of course, have no idea that they're travelling with a Heterodyne heir.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 4 Aug 2013
By JZD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have only recently come across 'Girl Genius'. Firstly I read the on line comic, excellent, so impressed with the story line as well as the humour and impressive art work. I bought Book One (kindle edition) and followed the story simultaneously on the comic and in the novel. Individually, they are both wonderful, when combined they are even better. I have now bought Book Two, another great read, and hoping it will not be too long before the third installment is published. So impressed I will probably buy the paper novels as well as the kindle versions.

Silly in a good way - I thought it was a bit more rambling than the first one but my husband and daughter loved it. The Jagermonsters are my favourites.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun sequel in an interesting Steampunk series 26 April 2013
Format:Paperback
Girl Genius: Agatha H and the Clockwork Princess reads much like an old time serial, those weekly installments of great classics like Flash Gordon one might see at the theatre week by week. Understandably so, since Girl Genius is based on the serialized web comic by Phil and Kaja Foglio. It's extremely entertaining to be able to flip back and forth between comic and book to compare one's inner conception of the various characters with the author's own visuals. This sequel also helps to flesh out a bit of the back story behind the events of the first novel. However, it is useful to have the Girl Genius Wiki on hand, as the sheer number of characters can make for confusion.

One notable aspect of both Girl Genius novels is the demonstration of a number of strong female characters, ranging from Agatha herself, a young lady plunged into a situation in which she has to rely on her natural talents, to Zeetha, the lonely, yet dangerous warrior woman, and extending to some of the more villainous characters. Even the OTHER, the epitome of villainy in this Steampunk world is a female.

There's also a strong comedic element to the story, usually embodied in Agatha and her reactions to new experiences, or the comedic relief of her feline familiar. Sometimes bawdy, sometimes slapstick, there is generally a lot of humour to counterbalance the darker aspects of the characters experiences as they move through a world that hides danger around every corner.

The biggest drawback to this novel is that it's so very, very, looooooooonnnngggg! Granted, Girl Genius is translated to print from the web comic and comic story arcs can last for years, but at 590 pages, the novel could be a strain on the attention spans of younger readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great novelisation 11 Feb 2013
By Kate
Format:Paperback
This is a rollicking novelization of several of the Girl Genius webcomics, where our heroine Agatha runs aways with the circus. This is a longer story compared to the previous ones, and the extra space is put to good use with increased explanation of the world and its inhabitants. I can't wait for the next one!
