Rating: 6

Steampunk meets The Watchmen in this turn-of-the-century action novel with steam-powered superheroes. Just the right touch of super-science a la Jules Verne and a conspiracy among the heroes of the city of Manhattan makes for a fast-moving read. In this first book in the series, young Sarah Stanton, daughter of The Industrialist, teams up with The Automaton (or “Tom”, for short), after her mentor and leader of the Paragons, Dennis Darby, is murdered.
