    Description

    1881 - Special Agent Gillian Hamilton is a magic caster with the Federal Bureau of Magic and Steam. He’s sent to Shallow Grave, Arizona, to arrest a madman engineer known as Tinkerer, who’s responsible for blowing up half of Baltimore. Gillian has handled some of the worst criminals in the Bureau’s history, so this assignment shouldn’t be a problem. But even he’s taken aback by a run-in with the country’s most infamous outlaw, Gunner the Deadly. 

    Gunner is also stalking Shallow Grave in search of Tinkerer, who will stop at nothing to take control of the town’s silver mines. Neither Gillian nor Gunner are willing to let Tinkerer hurt more innocent people, so they agree to a very temporary partnership. 

    If facing illegal magic, Gatling gun contraptions, and a wild engineer in America’s frontier wasn’t enough trouble for a city boy, Gillian must also come to terms with the reality that he’s rather fond of his partner. But even if they live through this adventure, Gillian fears there’s no chance for love between a special agent and outlaw. 

    Based on the short story, "Gunner the Deadly." Entirely revised, newly expanded, and book one in the exciting new steampunk series, Magic & Steam.

    Bearing in mind...

    that this is a novella and a prequel, so it's quick, and not very dirty... The world building is off to a good start (there's a lot more for us to learn about the organization Gillian works for, and we need more of both characters' back story, but those are coming in book 2).

    If you like the big gruff guy with muscles falls in trust with the small virginal guy with dangerous magic (right? I'm in.) as they fight a bad guy together, then this is perfect. Serious bedtime shenanigans don't happen yet here although it's a close thing.

    I enjoyed it. It's well read, especially Gunner's voice. it's as low and gravelly as we could want. In the best of worlds, I'd have waited to get this one until I could immediately follow it up with book 2, but I couldn't wait, and it's 2020, so the best of worlds doesn't apply.

    So this is steampunk! Hecking yeah!

    Steampunk has found a brand new fan! I had no real understanding of the word but I believe so sincerely in this writer's work so I clamored to read this story and oh my goodness. C. S. Poe is simply brilliant anyway. But she brings a certain intensity to this story by sweeping the reader right into the action. There's no setting up the scene, this author's no tease... Wham! You're right there in the midst of a gunfight with a combination of extraordinary machines, incredible magic, and two awesome men so gloriously different from each other, one's left speechless! And we haven't yet finished the first chapter! I was listening to the audiobook, beautifully narrated by Declan Winters, and went to my sound system to see how much of the story I had remaining because I wanted it to go on for days and knew I would have just a few short hours to enjoy a world I've only just visited. From chapter to chapter, Poe kept the energy high-right until the very last word. Wow, just wow. I am SO looking forward to this series.

    Magic + Steampunk = Awesome

    I loved this book when I originally read it and the audiobook is even better. The Engineer contains so many of my thing. M\M Romance, a historical setting, steampunk and magic. The author does an excellent job of blending all of this together seamlessly.

    This book is well worth a listen. Even better, the author is working on a novel-length sequel and I can’t wait!

    I enjoyed the narration. This is my first time listening to the narrator but I really enjoyed his performance. I will definitely look out for more from him.

    A steampunk story with an Old West twist

    Gillian and Gunner made quite a team - both stole my heart! The plot is fairly simple, 2 men on the opposite sides of the law collaborate to bring down a bigger criminal. The story is exciting and sweet with a satisfactory HFN. Can't wait for the next book!
    Declan Winters did a really great job of the narration. He is a perfect choice to voice Gillian and Gunner. Overall, he had very distinct and memorable voices for all the characters. I really hope he'll continue to narrate the series and other books.

    Great start...

    A semi-period fantastical story centered around the societal discontent for the love that dare not be spoken, involving a magic caster and an outlaw. Intriguing and exciting....Hamilton and Gunner...can’t wait to see where the adventures take me.

    Unique

    This is a unique story developing one of my favorite characters from an anthology. New narrator to me, he did a decent performance.

    Good Concept with room for improvement

    First of all. I really like the set up and the world building. The main character is likeable to me and the use of magic and tech is interesting. I would have wished for more material in between the progression of the romance because in just the few chapters it feels a little rushed and sudden. It makes sense for Hamilton to fall head over heels as fast as he does but I didn't get why Gunner would return the affection just as fast. The titel and description made the book seem a little more action orientated than it was. The romance is definitely the main focus of the plot which is fine in itself. It just felt a bit out of place in certain scenes. All in all it was an okay listen. The narrator has a really soothing voice.
