Welcome to Victorian London, with a modern twist. While a series of grisly murders are happening all over the city, Sir Maurice Newbury and his new assistant, Veronica Hobbes investigate the strange and mysterious crashing of an airship.
This book took me forever to get through, and I'm questioning how much I really enjoy Steampunk. The last several books I've read in the genre seem to have left me disappointed, and The Affinity Bridge is no different. I was very bored throughout this book and had troubles keeping my attention in the pages. I found the writing to be dry and lack-luster, but there is a part of me that realizes that this could be so much better.
I read this on a Nook, but recently purchased a physical copy of it. I'm going to try rereading it at a later date and see if my opinion changes. I don't know why I'm investing this much into liking a book, but I feel like I need to give Mann a second chance.
