Publisher's Summary

A mind-boggling new sequel to Infernal Devices to celebrate thirty years of Steampunk.

Some time after the events of Fiendish Schemes, George Dower finds himself a widower, of sorts. On her deathbed, Miss McThane entrusts Dower with a small, ticking clockwork box. The box is mysteriously linked to her.

When she breathes her last, the box stops ticking and Dower is able to open it, to find hundreds of letters - written in an unknown hand, signed only with the initial S. They’re not love letters, but refer instead to the letter-writer’s ongoing search for some other person. The last is a simple note, reading “Found him”...

Entertaining story performed well

If you are a fan of Infernal Devices and Devious Schemes, you will not be disappointed by Grim Expectations. The story combines action with zany humor, and the vocal performance is outstanding.

Hmmm...

It hurts me to write a bad review of the Father of Steam Punk, but this final book is a real struggle. It lacks original creative plot and characters in its attempt to emulate the fabulous first 2 books. Also, most of the characters have growling or shouting voices, so the narration is definitely not one for bed time!
