I received a Nook last Christmas as to innagurate it, I loaded some books some of my fellow independent writers have released. The first one in the queue, which I hope to finish soon, is Viridis by Calista Taylor. It is a steampunk novel set in a Victorian England complete with airships.
I’m rather enjoying reading a book by someone I know, it’s a different experience. In this day and age, saying you know someone needs some explaination. I know Calista from her online presence and we have discussed quite a number of topics. I wasn’t one of her beta readers, but I did give her some input on the cover. Viridis is her first book and is part of a series. The second book, Devil on a Sparrow's Wing, is currently available as are a couple other books.
I’m really enjoying her writing style and her ability to tell a story. She has an excellent knack of weaving her world building into the story and not dumping too much information at once. And not only is the setting steampunk, the book has several steamy love scenes. Steamy enough that it rates an adult content warning, but not gratuitous. They further the story and are necessary to understand the characters. I am looking forward to having some time this summer to sit down and finish this book and get to the others on my list."
