Praise for Bronze Gods

Product Description

As powerful magic comes creeping back, dangerous days are dawning…

Criminal Investigation Division inspectors Janus Mikani and Celeste Ritsuko were lucky to make it out of their last mission alive. Since then, strange troubles have plagued the city of steam and shadows, apparently as a result of magic released during the CID inspectors’ desperate interruption of an ancient ritual. The fabric of the world has been unsettled, and the Council has assigned Mikani and Ritsuko to investigate.

They soon discover that matters are worse than they imagined. Machines have developed minds of their own, cragger pirates are raiding the seas with relentless aggression, and mad elementals are running amok. As the chaos builds to a crescendo, Mikani and Ritsuko must fight a war on two fronts—and this time, they may not be able to turn the deadly tide…

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done! May 8 2014
By Michele Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am honestly surprised that there are only two reviews for Silver Mirrors. I am not surprised they are both five stars :-). Bronze Gods was one of my favorite books last year, Silver Mirrors is even better.
In this follow-up, you get more information about everything. You find out more about the background of both main characters as well as the world itself and the magic and elementals running through it. There is non-stop action and a romance that builds slowly throughout the book. The pace of the book is just right without a lot of contrived plot devices. Just an overall excellent book. I highly recommend the series, hopefully there is a third book waiting just around the corner :-).

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Series! April 29 2014
By rann - Published on Amazon.com

Wow! You are in for a heck of an adventure with Ritsuko and Mikani when you read Silver Mirrors! After I proclaimed Bronze Gods as the best book of 2013, I was almost afraid to read the follow up in the Apparatus Infernum series. Could it possibly be as good? The answer is a resounding YES!

While Bronze Gods was more of a murder mystery, Silver Mirrors is a series of all-out, no holds barred, bare-fisted confrontations with the dark magical forces that inhabit Hy Breasil's Winter Island. There is no time to catch your breath between chapters. The only thing softening the action is the slow burning romance between our heroes. You will learn a little more of Mikani's past, and then cross your fingers for both Ritusko's and Mikani's future. All I can say is AWESOME!

I truly love this series. The setting and concepts are highly original and thought-provoking. I hope they prove to be fodder for a long, successful series of books!

True story - Shortly before I starting reading Silver Mirrors, I watched a TV show on Atlantis-like lost lands. They talked about the island of Hy Breasil. I had never heard of it before, but I suppose that is because the Architect did such a good job of hiding it from the rest of the world.....

I got an advance copy from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a let down June 13 2014
By Veronica L. Gonzalez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As much as I liked the first book, this second instalment never really made me feel much. It's telling that it took me five days to finish the book because when I'm well and truly hooked I can't put a book down. Sadly, that was not the case this time. It seemed like the book took a long time to get to the point and by the time it did I found I wasn't particularly interested anymore. The story is still told in third person, which meant that we got quite a bit of some secondary characters that I could've done without, frankly. I'm not giving up on the series yet (assuming there are more books to come) but I'm hoping it can recapture the something-something this book seemed to lack for me. I'm also hoping the authors cut back on the constant mental asides from the characters. I found that most annoying after awhile.

4.0 out of 5 stars High quality, but a departure from the series-starter July 4 2014
By PoshGeek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Somehow, this entry in the Apparatus series lost some of its uniqueness when it shifted, pretty dramatically, from a Steampunk mystery series set in a could-be London or could-be Moscow, to a pirate adventure combined with classic fantasy "big-bads breaking loose." As a result, Mirrors lost some of the encapsulated, intimate feel of the previous novel. That said, the Aguirre team remains top-flight in the complex and shaded development of their characters, and in their fluid command of language. The duo can write, and the quality you see here is much, much higher than so much UF where the heroes devlove into cartoons. For the writing, world-building, and superb characterization, anyone who loves UF should take a look at this series. Just be forewarned that the middle novel is a bit of a departure, although it certainly remains entertaining.
