Storms of Lazarus (Shadows of Asphodel #2)

Sometimes escape is impossible. Sometimes love isn't enough.

1913. Christmas Eve. Ardis hardly expects a quiet holiday with Wendel, between fleeing Constantinople and hiding from an ancient society of assassins. And they owe a debt to a certain archmage.

In Königsberg, Prussia, they work with Konstantin on the next evolution of Project Lazarus. Wendel once called Königsberg home, the city now besieged by the Russians and their clockwork engines of war. This may be Wendel’s last chance to save his family and find redemption, but he's tormented by nightmares and tempted by laudanum. Ardis fears her love isn’t enough to save Wendel. Her hands are full piloting the automatons, and she's terrified to tell him a secret of her own. Will they—and their love—survive the storms of war?

My Review:
I did receive a free e-copy of the book for my honest review.
Karen Kincy has done it again! After reading Shadows of Asphodel, I was really looking forward to this second book. In Storms of Lazarus we get to meet Wendel's parents and revisit his brother and sister. Of course, it's not quite a happy homecoming, but I'm glad it happened. We also get more of Wendel and Ardis' relationship. Without giving too much away, I like the idea of Ardis softening her hard exterior. Ardis is still a bad-ass, don't get me wrong; but there's something that makes her question how physical she really needs to be now.
I'm seriously hoping there is third book. Honestly, I had never read dieselpunk romance before this series, and I'm hooked! It's interesting reading about zeppelins and necromancy, who knew!? Also, I am left wanting to know more about the new characters introduced (Ursula the nice doctor, and Captain Himmel the intriguing airship captain that has caught Konstantin's eye).
Definitely check this book out if you're at all interested in steampunk or dieselpunk. Heck, even if you are not, but you like action and a little romance, check this out! You will find yourself unable to put it down until the end!
