I listened to the first 10 on Audible. This review applies to the entire series.
I just binge listened to the entire Magnificent Devices series on Audible (how else to spend 12 credits?).
I look forward to, “Fields of Iron” and “Fields of Gold” being released in audio format. Other than the fact that the reader cannot do a decent American accent, they are fabulous. I do not fault that as most people in England would say the same about an American doing their accents. 🤣
I appreciate the author keeping this series fun and clean. (Though there is war violence) I love steampunk but have a hard time with the pervasive sexuality of so many series. I don’t need the selacious to distract from writing ability, story line, character development.
I highly recommend this series.
