    This omnibus gives us the first three Pax Britannia novels in one Which is as well, because they re rather compulsive reading and it s very easy to go straight through all three.Pax Britannia is what would have happened to the world had the Victorians carried on doing their thing, if the Empire had held together, steam technology had carried on and the same attitudes to women, the poor, the earth and the colonies had continued unchecked As such it s a rather steampunk sort of scenario.The plot This omnibus gives us the first three Pax Britannia novels in one Which is as well, because they re rather compulsive reading and it s very easy to go straight through all three.Pax Britannia is what would have happened to the world had the Victorians carried on doing their thing, if the Empire had held together, steam technology had carried on and the same attitudes to women, the poor, the earth and the colonies had continued unchecked As such it s a rather steampunk sort of scenario.The plot line follows the adventures of dandy adventurer Ulysses Quicksilver, who is a sort of James Bond type He s gung ho, arrogant, not as good as he thinks he is but somehow not dead Here s where the real genius of the boo...

    I am being generous with the rating I put it at 2.5 stars Basically the three books and two short stories are just about ok but could be so much better It doesn t matter that Green shows his inspiration on his sleeve the second book is 20,000 leagues under the sea and the third is ConanDoyle set in the Whitby of Dracula It is that so muchcould have been done with it JUst pinching chapter titles and having the hero say the game s afoot , doesn t make it a homage to Sherlock Holmes I am being generous with the rating I put it at 2.5 stars Basically the three books and two short stories are just about ok but could be so much better It doesn t matter that Green shows his inspiration on his sleeve the second book is 20,000 leagues under the sea and the third is ConanDoyle set in the Wh...

    The Quicksilver Omnibus was my first venture into the Steam Punk genre and, surprisingly, it quickly captivated me I m not sure if Green s work is typical of the genre or not, but I very much liked what I read The ambiance created the settings, language used, the characters created, even character names were just delightful The story or stories, as the case may be were a lot of fun Green takes rather typical period plots and makes them his own there s the riff on HUNCHBACK, SHERLOCK H The Quicksilver Omnibus was my first v...

    I was looking for a cracking yarn I didn t care if it was corny or not, I just want to be entertained So far, I m only a couple of chapters inwill update later.I blew this book off in favor of something else I may return to it later One of the things I find about alternate history or in this case steampunk is that it seems to me that at least in real life where technology leads, moral questions follow.The Quicksilver Omnibus loses me In a London where the great disparity between I was looking for a cracking yarn I didn t care if it was corny or not,...

    I started this omnibus containing three books a while back maybe over a year ago It looked vaguely amusing, a mix of steampunk with a bit of Holmesian not sure about the Bond influence, it feelsHolmesian to me The book was entertaining through Act 1 of the first story, then the obvious references to modern day s political issues i.e., anti terrorism acts felt a tad trite.Since I was also still in the midst of plowing through a few other series that were quite good, I put this book I started this omnibus containing three books a while back maybe over a year ago It looked vaguely amusing, a mix of steampunk with a bit of Holmesian not sure about the Bond influence, it feelsHolmesian to me The book was entertaining through Act 1 of the first story, then the obvious references to modern day s political issues i.e., anti terrorism acts felt a tad trite.Since I was also still in the midst of plowing through a few other series that were quite good, I put this book aside for later I m n...

    This was a fun series The down side to reading an omnibus like this is the completion of one book didn t count towards my total Ah well It was an interesting twist ontraditional steam punk novels, drawing from classic novelists like Arthur Conan Doyle, HG Wells and Jules Verne The world was an interesting blend of old language and new technology I did find the lack of soci...

    The first book, Unnatural History, was awful Just awful Hysterically so Needless to say, I loved it The subsequent books and shorts stories really picked up and were fun in their own right, as Jonathan Green dropped some cliches and really made Pax Britannia his own.

    I love steam punk as much as the next person, but too many names and genres thrown together in these stories.
