Beginning Babble: This is my benchmark series for steampunk. I don't claim to be very well read in the genre but I don't imagine many can come close to this one. I can gush like a crazyperson over this series and, while I am tempted, I will refrain.
Heroine: Rosalind-I loved Rosa. She was strong and she was brave. I love it when heroines are just as involved in the action as the heroes and Rosa definitely was. She also never acted like an overly brave ninny which I greatly appreciated. I do wish she had spent more time as herself with Jasper though.
Hero: Jasper: He was awesome. He was strong and brave but he had this wonderful vulnerable and sweet side. He was protective of Rosalind in all the right ways and he was just so perfect. And again both sides of his personality were so well balanced. I don't know if he is my favorite hero of the series but he definitely comes pretty close.
Chemistry: I always enjoy it when it the hero who falls buttass in love with the heroine. Usually it's the heroine with the stronger feelings and the heroes being all manly and detached. It was the complete opposite with Jasper. He was a smoosh when it came to Rosalind and I found it so endearing. I also loved how it was a slow build with Jasper and Rosalind. It took time and it was gradual but when it happened...wow!
Ending Babble: Bec McMaster is awesome. I mean it. She's absolutely amazing. She singlehandedly converted me to a lover of Steampunk. I was a pure skeptic until I read 1st book in series. The world she creates is wonderfully detailed and beautifully written and I love how she weaves the paranormal aspect into her story. Lady Quicksilver is no different. It's excellent.
