Still undecided about the steampunk. From what I have seen so far, I am not impressed. But I will read the book anyway. For me it is not about the genre, but the storytelling. That is what is needed for me.

Just finished the second Alex Verus book. A big improvement over the first one, better storytelling and no real Deus Ex Machina this time (well, perhaps one). Certain things were too obvious, but hey, his storytelling is improving a lot. I am looking forward to reading book three.

Sometimes it takes those first 3 books for an author to really find his voice with a series. I am really glad I didn't give up on The Dresden Files after the first book.

Exactly my point. I almost never judge a writer on his/hers first book.
