Did I enjoy it? Yes.
Did I enjoy it as much as the 1st book, which was brilliant? No.
It was more recognisable as a romance, which didn't quite mesh with the action. I always find this mix of genres too clashing. Nothing wrong with love and romance, and nothing wrong with action, but I always find detailed romantified sex scenes weirdly indecent in an action driven plot.
The writing was, as always, excellent. The technology is fascinating, and I would be very interested to learn more about the world, so long as I don't have to wade through multiple-orgasmic-earth shattering sex in order to do so!
Both Yasmeen and Archimedes Fox were introduced in the previous installments, and they had great chemistry in "The Iron Duke", so I was very frustrated during the course of this book because it felt like Yasmeen and Archimedes from "The Iron Duke" and Yasmeen and Archimedes from "Heart of Steel" were COMPLETELY different characters. In "Heart of Steel", both of them are lame stereotypes with NO depth and so much cheese it practically drips from the pages of the book while reading it. Seriously, Archimedes is the most one-dimensional, shallow and dull character I have read about in a while.
Yasmeen really gets the shaft in the character department, with a super lame, cliché background story of why she has a heart of steel and will not allow her feelings for a man to influence her behavior. SPOILER: it is because she had bad experiences with previous boyfriends, and therefore has decided to judge all men and relationships according to those past experiences. It comes of exactly as lame and stupid in the story as it sounds like, and is incredibly clumsily put in there through expositional dialogue.
The story and especially the pacing are big problems in this book as well.Read more ›

Well, we have another winner! I very much enjoyed Yasmeen and Archimedes' story. Yasmeen was a great, strong female lead and Archimedes was like an anti-alpha. Read more
