    1. I haven't read this book (yet), but it is one of the 10 finalists in the Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off. That's 10 out of 300 hopefuls!Read about the competition heremark---lawrenceSee ratings and reviews of all the finalists here:mark---lawrence

    2. (Full review here: bibliotropic/2016/11/16/s)So overall? Yes, definitely read The Music Box Girl. It may not be the most original, but it brings original twists to a familiar story, and it’s a smooth-flowing tale of ambition and sacrifice, which is exactly what I expected. It’s quick and engaging, the characters are interesting and very much themselves, and it’s quite enjoyable, at least from where I’m standing. I can see steampunk fans enjoying this dive into musical pop culture.

    3. I'm always happy when a new book by K.A. Stewart arrives in the mail and The Music Box Girl is no exception.It's everything I hope for in steampunk: Gears, automatons, steam--and the clothes! Oh, I'm supposed to talk about the plot. I'll stop fantasizing about all those things now.Tenor Anton Krol comes to the Detroit Opera House and runs into the dual brick walls of a temperamental star and being an unknown from the country. Since he wants to eat, he takes a job with the stage crew. His "helpfu [...]

    4. Phantom of the Opera starring R. Daneel Olivaw. Too obscure? How ‘bout C3PO? “We gravitate toward disaster.”Great concept, borrowing liberally from Phantom and Pygmalion, Frankenstein, and Aladdin. Was wavering between four and five star ratings until I reached the climax. If it’d been a book (rather than an iPad), I’d have thrown it against the wall. You’ve got to be kidding. Syrupy and illogical for starters. (view spoiler)[(If not Deus ex Machina, at least Hero ex Machina) (hide s [...]

    5. I've always been a huge fan of K. A. Stewart's work. Her worlds are fun and inventive, her characters exciting, and the action often intense and encompassing. I didn't know THE MUSIC BOX GIRL was coming out until a few weeks before its release, and it definitely wasn't what I was expecting from Stewart. The world wasn't as inventive as compared to her ARCANE WEST series or SECOND OLYMPUS (still one of my favourite books in the world), but it was clear she did her research for the opera. The cent [...]

    6. Automatons everywhere!K.A. Stewart's newest offering, The Music Box Girl, is a steampunk fan's dream. Full of unique tech, art, and a monster in an opera house, this is a new Phantom of the Opera for this generation.This is a world where machines have memories, think for themselves, and even kill. Add in a male opera singer on his way to stardom and an adventurous explorer-woman and you are left with a story that is hard to put down, let alone forget.

    7. Steampunk Phantom of the Opera. Not a strong fantasy. Prose isn't bad. Plot is derivative, predictable, and slow to build, so by the halfway mark I was bored--but, even worse, I didn't care about the characters.
