Review - Queen Victoria, but not as we know her!

Queen Victoria: Demon HunterQueen Victoria: Demon Hunter by A.E. Moorat
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I was really looking forward to reading this but I feel abit let down.  I wasn't sure if it was meant to be scary or funny - it didn't really scare me (and there were parts of it that, done differently, would have been horrible) but it did make me laugh - just not enough for me to be sure that that was the intention throughout.  I did particularly like the moment when Quimby tells a "photogenic drawing" expert that the French word of "photographie" will never catch on.

With a few exceptions the characters weren't developed brilliantly, and there were parts to the plot that were never explained (or, if they were, I missed them) and seemed inserted just to explain away other parts.

This was first foray in Steampunk - I have another on my TBR and I can only hope it leaves me more satisfied than this!
