A Study in Silks


Enjoyable series, but I wish it would have had less Romance and more Smart Protagonist

What I really enjoyed about this series (A Study in Silks, A Study in Darkness, A Study in Ashes):

- excellent Steampunk ideas, devices, and contrivances
- likeable main character (and a non-bimbo sidekick! yay!)
- fairly-well-developed characters and backgrounds
- good knowledge of period dress and customs
- well-developed worldbuilding for the magic base
- clever alternate plot "truths" using Conan Doyle's "The Hound of the Baskervilles"...
