The Steamkettle Kids Save The Day! (The Legends and Adventures of Industralia Part 1) by Lori Alden Holuta (Amazon, Goodreads)

It has been a busy week at Starving Author LLC but I guaranteed a review and thus it shall be! To accommodate my busy eating schedule, today’s Starving Review will be for a little treat of a children’s meal, a one-course snack that comes out of the steampunk kitchen of previous Starving Review chef, Lori Alden Holuta. Will today’s meal match up to previous bites or will it be insufficient to quiet my stomach grumbles?

Before we find out, remember to check the factory rules and be safe at reviewing:

  1. I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the genre
  2. I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible

The Legend of The Engineer: A New Year’s Holiday Tale by Lori Alden Holuta (Amazon, Goodreads)

This week, we are serving up short stories in the Starving Review kitchen.  The Legend of The Engineer is a short tale set in the world of The Brassbright Chronicles, which we have been served a meal from before.  The first was a bright, cheery steampunk dish for younger readers.  Will this small slice from that same cake taste as good or will it be diminished by the smaller portion?

As the pneumatic table service sets the plates, let us recall the Starving Review bylaws:

  1. I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the genre
  2. I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible
