Steampunk Spotlight: Avalon & Me, Review

Thank you to the lovely Talloolah Love for this new review of Avalon Revisited!

Here’s an excerpt:

I think the most remarkable thing about our anti-hero, is that he is so flawed, one really should hate him.  He’s appalling.  But you cant help but fall for his rakish charm.  You realize that the one thing that has gotten him through the ages is running away from the past by being inhuman and burying himself in 350 years of carnal pleasures, both euphemistically and literally.  It is Avalon who shatters his entire way of life by first looking like his lost love (Catherine of Aragon), then by being someone loyal and caring who he could truly fall in love with.  It makes him relive and face his past, it makes the trivial pleasures he so relished seem fruitless.  His existential crisis got a bit tedious, but it did not make me hate him, just made me want to slap him around a little bit.  It’s a love story, its a suspense thriller and it’s a mystery with a quick cameo of Sherlock Holmes and Watson themselves for the well versed in Sir Conan Doyle’s work.

Read the entire review in the Steampunk Chronicle.

  1. I’m not as familiar with this site as I’d like to be.
    Where is the original story ‘Avalon and Me’ ?
