4.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of magic
Devon Monk is best known for her Allie Beckstrom books set in a modern environment. Dead Iron is in a somewhat older environment, but one where the train is setting its tracks accross the US (and, of course, also includes magic).

We find werewolves, elves, witches and devisers (people who somehow manage to imbue mechanical devises with magic).

1.0 out of 5 stars exorbitant cost
I read the 'taster' for this book at the end of one of the Allie Beckstrom ebooks. But there is no way on earth that I'm going to pay 8 plus for it on Kindle. Especially when the mass market paperback is 4 plus. Shame, I was quite looking forward to reading it.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Devon Monk is best known for her Allie Beckstrom books set in a modern environment. Dead Iron is in a somewhat older environment, but one where the train is setting its tracks accross the US (and, of course, also includes magic).

We find werewolves, elves, witches and devisers (people who somehow manage to imbue mechanical devises with magic).

Cedar Hunt is a bounty hunter. His talent is finding people, due to a very sensitive nose. He sets out to find a child and on that hunt he'll end up having to save a whole town, save a witch and try to get rid of a VBP (very bad person).

Devon Monk writes excellent urban fantasy, and now she shows that she manages the style of steam punk as well. The book is full of action and is quite an entertaining book.
