This review is from: More Tea Vicar (Kindle Edition)
(A better version of this review, with gifs (because gifs are totally cool), is on my blog - The Jolly Wordsmith).

Romance is usually not my cup of tea. And neither is erotica. I usually steer very well clear of both those genres. Unless, of course, they were penned by a bloody good writer.
Aurelia Fray is a bloody good writer. And she read one of my books so I decided to give hers a go too.

Romance and erotica may not be my cup of tea, but More Tea Vicar by Aurelia Fray was an interesting addition to my normally apocalyptic, dark, blood-splattered and fantastical horror/dystopian/steampunk book list. Reading it was like adding a little cheeky sprinkle of spice into an otherwise normally ordinary cup of tea.

The story follows Sophie Ann, a normally well behaved lady, with a dull life and a controlling mother. One fateful and unplanned evening with her best friend, Naomi, led to Sophie's simple life taking a sudden and exciting detour into someone else's bedsheets.

The story is very cheeky. And I will admit that certain cheeky parts did have me giggling and snorting like an immature schoolboy. In a good way.

The story flows very well, from start to end. The settings, the feelings and the characters are very vividly described. I cannot fault the writing of the author in any way. This is a short read which will take about an hour to finish, depending on how fast you are. But the length should not dissuade you from purchasing this book, because it packs a pleasantly spicy nibble. Or slap. Or whatever it is you're into these days.

The problem I have with books of this genre is that they are usually cliché. Girl meets boy, fall in love, author looks up "penis" in the thesaurus, the characters have a bit of hanky panky and live happily ev... yaawwnn.
... I'm sorry, where was I? Ah. ... have a bit of hanky panky and live happily ever after.
However I felt that Aurelia Fray's 'More Tea Vicar' is different from all the rest. The story takes a different approach which is very rarely touched by romance and erotic authors. It is almost like having a naughty little walk down an almost forbidden path. Or a completely forbidden path if you're a prune, like Sophie Ann's mother.
I enjoyed this book, and I think you will too.

It's saucy. It's cheeky. It's salacious. It's spicy. And it's a good read.
I recommend that you should try this book out. Even I, who normally does not poke into this genre, found it to be a good read.

I wonder if Aurelia Fray will be expanding on this story to tell us what happens next?

5.0 out of 5 stars A very well-written, vivid and suspenseful steampunk story, 1 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is also on my blog, thejollywordsmith (dot) blogspot (dot) co (dot) uk

Mud and Brass: A Steampunk Short Story is everything a steampunk story should be.
This is a short story by Andrew Knighton which has left me wanting to read more about this fascinating steampunk world.

The story is set in a dystopian industrial age where rich businessmen can get away with anything. A world where workers are expendable and machines highly valued. It is a story of vengeance, revenge and the awful consequences of such.

I was sucked into the story from the first sentence. The world is so vividly described and detailed that I almost felt as if I was right there. I almost heard the deafening sounds of the industrial age, smelt the foul river and saw the people right in front of me.
There is a lot of intrigue around the main character and you really do feel a connection to him because he is so well detailed. The other characters are described with the same depth. The interactions with the characters are very realistic and lifelike.

There is also a little bit of mystery at the which makes you wonder what is going on. But as the story progresses, we unravel more about the main character and his intentions. I was not expecting the plot twist contained in these pages, and neither will you. The ending is even more unpredictable and a fantastic one which will leave you deep in thought.

Many apparent books of this genre these days actually lack a lot of steampunk elements. The author usually shoves in an airship and some monocles then passes the story off as a steampunk. Disappointing the readers as a result.
Mud and Brass on the other hand is a true steampunk world with gears, brass, steam, industry and machines everywhere you turn.

This is a well-written story in a very well described world, lifelike characters and a suspenseful plot. Andrew Knighton is an artist with words. The fact that this is a short story should not be an issue for anybody. It is packed full of detail and depth and the words flow beautifully.

I want to read more about this world. I want to know what happens next to each of the characters next. I hope the author is planning on releasing a sequel or two.
