      A GOOD SEQUEL TO THE FIRST ONE! I enjoyed this a lot!4.5! This book picks up to where the first book ended. It started with action right away! They get captured, get rescued and get thrown right away to battle again!Damn! I think that's what's so good about this series. You'll be surprised all the time with all the action and thrill! Now let's talk about what happened to our charactersArdis is still the bad ass that she is in book one. However, this time, she's softer in my opinion. A lot of her [...]

      I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to start this second book in Kincy's series. The first book blew me away, it was completely unexpected and I loved every single thing about it. And as my first foray into dieselpunk, once I became immersed in the world Kincy created, I knew I was hooked and I wanted more.To see Wendel and Ardis again was a real treat and to see them together as a team? I don't even have words for how great it was too see them together. To see them work side by sid [...]

      Review also posted at Ja čitam, a ti? Shadows of Asphodel was a real discovery last year. It was a mix of different things which brought together a really unique and interesting story. As I said in my review it was set in time really familiar to all of us, but at the same time it was so different. So, we can say that I had a really high hopes of Storms of Lazarus. The cover didn't disappoint, let me tell you that. The story wasn't a disappointment either, I'm happy to tell you that, but it wasn [...]

      Wow, what a roller coaster ride! This picks up right where book one ended and man, the action was intense. There's a lot going on but I was thrilled to be along for the ride. I can't say more or I'll give it away. Just trust me, you'll love this one! Highly recommend!My Rating: 5 stars

    6. Sophia says:

      This second installment picks up from where the first book left off. It is definitely a series that should be read in order as far as I can see. The enchanting steampunk and magical world, endearing characters, excitement, a dash of intrigued, and a love story continue to engage me in this sequel.Ardis and Wendel survived the big showdown with the powerful leader of the assassins that held Wendel in their control for so long. Now they are probably considered outlaws by the Archmages and definite [...]

    7. Kara-karina says:

      This is a pretty snappy steampunk series, ladies and gents. It's just so fluid, and the tech is not in the face obvious. It's a well integrated part of everyone's life. I also love how organically it co-exists with magic in this world.Wendel and Ardis is a couple we met in Shadows of Asphodel. Thrown together by chance, an assassin necromancer and a mercenary fugitive manage to thwart powerful enemies in a conspiracy plot. Now they are on the run from Wendel's masters. Not only that, but Prussia [...]

      Review: STORMS OF LAZARUS by Karen Kincy [Shadows of Asphodel #2]If you've read SHADOWS OF ASPHODEL (the first book in this set), then you will surely not want to miss STORMS OF LAZARUS! Lovers of Steampunk, aficionados of YA/NA fantasy, devotees of alternate history plottings, gather 'round. This is WWI as you've never experienced it, with clockwork and automatons and oh joy! Necromancers.  Female mercenary Ardis and her dead-not dead love, Necromancer Wendel, are still movin' on and keepin' o [...]

      Disclaimer: Received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. I'm so happy I loved this one, too, because honest reviews when you don't like something can really stink to write. Phew! When I read book one in this series, SHADOWS OF ASPHODEL, I could not stop thinking about Wendel for days. I totally fell in love with this character as well as his lover, Ardis. (You can see my review of Shadows here: bit/1t0tP0o And it wasn't just the characters, but the book itself. I didn't mind h [...]

      ***I received this book free from the publishers in exchange for an honest review***this was my first adventure into steam punk or as it is referred too diesel punk and while I loved the writing style and just the sheer wonder of this book something just sort of felt missing for me. Although I loved how much the characters grew in this book compared to the first one where I didn't really connect with them. Wendal and Ardis are great in this one there was so much going on between them both, for o [...]

    11. Jen says:

      This book was much better than the first one of the series. Odd that the Big Bad of the first book didn't really show much in this book. There did seem to be more character development and again, the setting was pretty awesome. Some things were not a happiness for me, but it was a lot better than my disappointment with the first book. I still wouldn't recommend the first book to anyone, but this book I would recommend. I guess it would help to know the background from the first book, but I don't [...]

    12. Heidi says:

      Three and a half stars: A solid sequel with plenty of steampunk gadgets and gizmos.Ardis can't shake the horrible memories of the night Wendel died from her mind. Wendel is also struggling with the events from that night, even though he doesn't remember dying, he is haunted at night and can't sleep. Christmas is approaching and Ardis and Wendel are hoping for a quiet reprieve. No such luck. There airship is attacked by a large clockwork dragon, and once again they are drawn into the conflict. Wi [...]

    13. Meigan says:

      Now that the battle with the Grandmaster is behind them, Ardis and Wendel thought they were safe, for now, from the assassins from the Order. After the events from Shadows of Asphodel, seemingly everyone thought Wendel was history. Everyone except Ardis, that is. Trying to stay under the radar and avoid detection is Ardis and Wendel's priority as they make their way to Bulgaria and hopefully, refuge. Unfortunately for them, safety isn't in their future. Assassins are back with a vengeance and wi [...]

    14. Babel says:

      This is one hell of an adventure I was thrilled to go back to. I couldn't forget the main characters nor the world they lived in from the first novel, Shadows of Asphodel. So I was happy as a kitten with cream when the second book came under my greedy eyes.Last time, Ardis and Wendel barely survived. Now, they have to do it all over again in the face of vampires, overzealous archmages, deadly technomancy, and they have to travel by zeppelin to a land about to plunge into war against the powerful [...]

    15. Autumn says:

      You know whats exciting?! Reading a book and falling in love with not only the characters or the story but the scenery. While this story isnt exactly set in the best time in our world’s history. Kincy’s imagination makes it something to behold. There are so many things that I wish were actually true!We basically start this book where we left off in the Shadows of Asphodel. Same characters but with a few more added. Adris and Wendel seem to have found their stride PUN INTENDED! I did love the [...]

    16. Heather says:

      I really enjoyed the first novel in this series, THE SHADOWS OF ASPHODEL, so much so that I helped a tiny bit with Karen Kincy's Kickstarter for this novel, STORMS OF LAZARUS. While I think things were a little murky about archmages and the technomancy in the first novel, it is pretty straight forward in this novel. There is a war brewing and Wendel is needed for his necromancy powers to run the automaton army that the archmages have built. Several new characters are added to this novel but I re [...]

    17. Jamie (Books and Ladders) says:

      This review was originally posted on Books and LaddersDisclaimer: I received a free copy of this book via Curiosity Quills Press in exchange for an honest review.I read and reviewed the first in this series, Shadows of Asphodel, which I loved so I was overly eager to read and review this one too. I was a little afraid that it would be a let down compared to how much I loved the first one, but it was even better than the first in my opinion.The relationship between Ardis and Wendel deepens in thi [...]

    18. Nay Denise says:

      OMG I'm not sure if this is the ending of this series, but if it is it definitely was perfect! Ardis and Wendel are just absolutely amazing and are definitely a top OTP for me. This sequel is a perfect conclusion to Shadows of Asphodel and Karen Kincy is simply brilliant for it!The sequel follows Ardis and Wendel after Wendel's "date with death." They get caught by police officers due to the Archmage trying to find them both. The Archmages enlist Wendel as an "employee" to help with Project Laza [...]

      Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books.Ardis and Wendel are on the run, but they get caught up in the war between Russia and Prussia. Wendel returns to the home he was removed as a child. He doesn't want to be there, but he will, for Ardis. Ardis is carrying a secret, one that might mean she loses Wendel forever.An excellent follow up to the firt book. I would recommend that you read that first, to get the full Ardis/Wendel experience.Because it is a brilliant experience! Ard [...]

    20. Terri M. says:

      Overall, a solid read. The ending was a bit disjointed and rushed.

    21. Romance Schmomance says:

      She's done it again everyone! I was such a fan of the first book in this series, Shadows of Asphodel, I was overjoyed to be asked to be a part of this blog tour. It took no hesitation on my part, I'm just in love with Wendel & Ardis' story!Gosh, where do I even start? It's going to be tough to do this review without spoiling anything at all. I suppose, I'll just talk about all the elements that I did love.I still don't have a full understanding of the whole dieselpunk era, but this series ju [...]

    22. Steph says:

      Liked the first book so much I contributed to the Kickstarter for the second!Following only days after the events of Shadows of Asphodel, Storms of Lazarus follows our heroes Ardis and Wendel as their attempt to escape is foiled and they are yet again dragged into a war they want nothing to do with.In many ways, I really prefer Storms of Lazarus over Shadows of Asphodel, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. Let's just say I really liked the whole idea of the wasps (you'll see what I mean) an [...]

      Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.It was so nice reading about Ardis and Wendel again. Ardis really is a brilliant character (as is Wendel, but in my opinion, this story was about her more than it was him!) and it was a journey that involved more automatons, magic and technology (the appearance of Nikola Tesla was fun).Things pick up pretty much where they left off, so it was back in [...]

    24. Jenn says:

      I couldn't wait to get this book! Before the first in this series (shadows of asphodel) I had never read any books in the steampunk genre. Karen's series has introduced me to a new world that I adore. I fell in love with Ardis, Wendel, and Konstantin right away. This book continues the story and adventures of these 3 unlikely comrades as the world steps into it's first war. Adding to the tale we get technomancy, vampires, magic, love, and a bratty pet Raven. I don't dare forget the best part but [...]

      2014-08-18 (before reading)What's this!? Above, UK price. Below, US price (both converted in €).But, when I log in:

    26. Beth ~~Just One More Chapter I Swear~~ says:

      Another solid dieselpunk story with sexy bits and violent deaths rolled into a tidy ball of paranormal romance. This volume had the usual suspects (necromancer, mercenary, archmage and automatons) along with some new characters including sentient clockwork creatures, vampires, a smart new pet raven and one of the greatest scientists everNikola Tesla!! The end wraps things up neatly and sets an attractive foundation for the next book in the series.

    27. Lina (From the Verge) says:

      I am so happy that I got the chance to support the Kickstarter project for this and the previous book, Shadows of Asphodel. This book gave me the closure I was craving regarding our sexy Necromancer and kickass Mercenary. I was craving this Happily Ever After and I got it. Bonus point: it mentions a couple of vampires!

    28. Brenda Gartin says:

      Ardis is a badass heroine, paired with Wendel--her perfect match. A great steampunk--heavy on the sream.

    29. Jessica says:

      Loved it! This was an excellent follow up to the first book, and immersively entertaining. This series definitely deserves more attention!

    30. Charlie says:

      Vampires. Angry Hungarians. Zeppelins. Assassins. Clockwork. Strip poker. A raven. The automans. The castle. War.“You have a lovely singing voice,” Ardis said, “but –““Why, thank you.”“But be quiet. We’re escaping.”“Escaping,” Wendel grinned like he couldn’t help himself. “Exactly.”Karen Kincy did not disappoint in her followup to Shadows of Asphodel! Of course, it didn’t go anything how I planned it to, but Karen Kincy is a master of story weaving; it is much mor [...]
