Praise for Short Stories

“The author has captured the feel of a period piece and still engaged the roader in the manner of a modern piece of fiction. Very engaging, her writing casually sneaks in and demands your attention. I enjoyed this story thoroughly.” ~Amazon Reader Review for “The Clockwork Heart

“If you’re looking for a compelling short read that combines eroticism and the gothic, “A Kiss in the Rain” is an excellent choice. The author provides a tantalizing and mysterious context of a Victorian scientist’s heartbreak distracting him during his work. What happens next in the macabre setting of a nighttime graveyard blurs genre lines of horror, romance, and fantasy. A perfect lunch break read for those with a love of the sinister.” ~Meredith Collins via for “A Kiss in the Rain

“I read O.M. Grey’s novel Avalon Revisited and absolutely loved it! So when I found this short story, I just had to read it! It did not disappoint! It was such a tragic but beautifully written story that left me absolutely breathless from beginning to end! If you’re a fan of steampunk and romance, I highly recommend! Very entertaining and great read!” ~Briane Sperry via for “Of Aether & Aeon


Praise for Avalon Revamped

“A great sequel for a great book. Revamped is packed with drama, comedy, romance and redemption, new characters await as do new characters.” ~Robert Davis,


Praise for The Ghosts of Southwark

“Awesome book. Teenagers will love this story and have hero’s they can identify with. I could not put it down.” ~Maxy Pertuit,


Praise for The Zombies of Mesmer 

“A decidedly breathtaking and action-packed ending brings the tale to a satisfying end, and it will leave you wanting to know how soon before the next installment in Nickie Nick’s adventures comes out. A story for young adults and adults alike. And exciting read that will keep you up well into the night clicking through the digital pages.” ~ Michele Hauf, VampChix

“Nickie is the perfect vampire slayer for the post-modern world. A prim Victorian girl, just coming of age by day, a plucky and touchy defender by night—she is the perfect package, all rolled up into a proper corset. The Zombies of Mesmer was the kind of book one should never begin at bedtime. Not just because it has a perfectly tuned choir of creepiness, but because once started you cannot put it down! Look out Buffy, there is a new slayer in town. She is every bit as tough, resourceful and kick-ass—in a full corset. If The Zombies of Mesmer is the new trend in vampire novels, I have hope for the genre again.” ~Muffy Morrigan, Author

“It’s a fun adventure story about a girl destined to slay vampires facing off against a mad scientist trying to mesmerize the Queen of England…There’s a lighthearted balance in this novel. There are poignant moments between Nickie and the orphans, funnier moments with her mentor/nanny, and some downright terrifying times with the mad scientist. This is a good book for any and all ages, especially if one enjoys a bit of mad science.” ~Penny J. Merriweather, Gearhearts Steampunk Glamour Revue

“What a delightful book! Nickie Nick has a wonderful personality, with just the right amount of wit, sarcasm, attitude, and compassion to be an endearing heroine. I look forward to reading more of O.M. Grey’s books!” ~Alana Spencer,

“I thought that Miss Grey put together a well written tale…OM’s knowledge of the workings of London in the late 19th Centrury along with the Steampunk genre work to weave a masterful piece. This book was hard to put down once I started. I really loved the book through and through. Miss Grey has a way of making the reader feel as though they are on this very same journey with Nickie Nick…Can’t wait for the second book in this series.” ~David R Bennett,


Praise for Avalon Revisited

Avalon Revisited, by O. M. Grey, is a delightful combination of historical fiction, romance and steampunk…This book is cleverly written with enough humor to take the edge off of the sadness.”

“I sometimes found myself getting caught up in the detail and the descriptions that I found myself rereading to make sure I did not miss a thing.  This attention to detail fed my imagination and I found myself riding an “Airship” for the first time and slaying vampires…The plot line is well paced from the very first page and never stops, and keeps you engaged, horrified and laughing out loud.  I love O.M. Grey’s writing style and she her comedic timing was fantastic.” ~Darkiss Reads

“Avalon Revisited is destined to become one of the definitive novels of the Steampunk genre. It’s magnificently written and each page renders you eager to get to the next. For all those clamoring for Steampunk novels, look no fur- ther than Avalon Revisited! It doesn’t get any better than this.” ~Maynard Blaylock, Dark Faery Magazine

“…a sensual road that lead me to a quickness of heart rate, a need to touch, smell and taste the pleasures of another, and images that will continue to move through my brain for a very long time. A thought provoking journey…one that begs to be told over and over. It was exceptional and I loved every page! Thank you so much for the adventure!” ~Therasa Merritt-Fritze

“This wonderfully written novel is filled with delectable twists and turns that keep the reader, and Arthur, on their toes…In a world of cliché and just-like, Avalon Revisited is refreshingly original. It is steampunk at it’s best, and romance at it’s finest, wrapped around a murder mystery you can sink your teeth into. O.M. Grey has shown her mastery of speculative fiction and I can’t wait to see what is next off the presses.”
~ Maxwell Cynn

“From the first few lines, the book is immersing, easy to slip into, and flat-out entertaining…O.M. Grey has real talent, which is not something I’d say without sincerity, and certainly not something I’d say about someone who writes run-of-the-mill smut. This is high-quality Gothic vampire steam-powered erotica, y’all.” ~

“It was a quick, enthralling and well written leap into a world I didn’t know I enjoyed so very much. The wit is dark and the humor is sharp, the gadgets are ingenious. Grey uses every bit of her imagination to makes this whole world multidimensional and engaging, yet so very simple to believe in…O.M. Grey gives a unique view into the many layers and mannerisms and details of a subculture that’s steeped in such strict etiquette.” ~ Filthy Rotten via

“The story is intriguing and delicious, the characters are delightful and easy to picture, and the London backdrop serves perfectly for a supernaturally romantic mystery. I hope to see much more of the same genre from O.M. Grey, whose prose is never over- or underdone, and whose well-rounded construction of Arthur is addictive and quite companionable for the reader. Classic and passionate (but never to the point of smut, in my opinion) “Avalon Revisited” is a delectable triumph and has left me savoring its flavor and definitely hungry for more.” ~ Alyson via, full review on Worthy Cogitations

“Fans of Gail Carriger will LOVE Avalon Revisited. Steamy scenes, plot twists, intriguing characters, and of course fabulous gadgets and a most impressive airship make for a phenomenal Steampunk adventure! Gray weaves English History, Arthurian Legend, Victorian culture and Supernatural beings into an incredible tale that covers romance, deception, bustles, brass fittings and intrigue. This is especially great for those who need a break from complaining Vampires who lament their monsterhood on a continuous basis. Arthur makes no apologies for who he is- and he has a rather more creative back story than any other Vampiric Hero. Pick it up- it’s a great read!”
~ Old Towne Books & Tea (via Amazon review)

“This was a fantastic tale filled with just the right touches of wry, dark humor, horror and gore, steampunk gadgets, and romance. The hero is delightfully flawed, while the heroine is the perfect mix of spunk and innocence. Solid story and wonderful twists and turns made this impossible to put down. It was definitely gobbled in one sitting. I can’t wait to read more by this author. Highly recommend this read – five gold stars!”
~Heidi via

“A combination of steampunk and paranormal romance which keeps its identity all through without having to remind you why at every twist and turn… I took my time, allowing myself to fully enjoy the nuances and pacing O.M. Grey afforded.”
~ Aria’s Dark Muse

“The characters are totally infectious, the love scenes are quite steamy…I’m an avid reader of vampire fiction and Avalon Revisited will be put on my shelf right between Bram Stoker and Anne Rice…my all time favorites!” ~ Briane via

“From its opening scene until the final page, this intriguing novel engages the reader’s interest…The combination of witty dialogue, historical authenticity, and mystery result in a highly entertaining novel, ensuring that the reader turns the pages as quickly as possible to find out what happens to Arthur and Avalon.” ~ Carol @ Bitten by Books

“Avalon Revisited is a delightful farce! The whole time I was reading it, I couldn’t help but share bits with whomever was with in earshot.” ~ Anna Marie @ Anna Marie’s Corner

“I thoroughly got a kick out of reading this book. It was a straight forward read told in the first person without any unnecessary rambling from Arthur…There is (what I think is) an ample amount of sexy, steamy intimate encounters in the book but not the overdone, over the top kind. Quite tastefully done…I wanted more everything. O.M. Grey is an author to be on the look-out for.” ~ Tasha @ rockcandy

“I’m glad I read it. I actually read it all in one sitting…The overall plot was interesting and original…I would recommend this to anyone who likes Steampunk or Paranormal that doesn’t mind sex and a little violence.” ~Tara @ 25 Hour Books

“O.M. Grey enters the world of Steampunk in a huge way with Avalon Revisited. A mixture of mystery, blood, love, and jealousy makes this new author an absolute delight to read. This is one book that will excite readers and make them demand more!”
~Nicole @ Howling Good Books
