#BookReview Boston Metaphysical Society by Madeleine Holly-Rosing

Steampunk. Ah, steampunk. I have a love-hate relationship with this sub-genre, but man do I love drowning in it. It’s such a guilty pleasure for me, but it can be so hard to find a good steampunk read. Luckily for me, this wonderful graphic novel is the perfect collection of steampunk.

I’m not the end all be all when it comes to this genre. I don’t read much of it so I’m not super accurate in knowing how well steampunk is portrayed. That being said, I adored this little graphic novel and thoroughly enjoyed myself as I was reading it. I can totally appreciate the work Madeleine put into this series. It’s worth the read if you love a little steampunk in your life. Have I said steampunk enough yet?

This graphic novel is packed tight full of fantastical, paranormal instances dealing with evil and mystery. It’s thrilling, action packed and super fun. There’s lots of science and history hidden in the lore as well, which made me a happy little nerd. Since I’m not typically the biggest reader of this genre, it was nice that it was so easy to jump into and enjoy.

There was constant drama and movement in the plot, which kept me thoroughly enjoyed. I also enjoyed the old time costumes and scenery in the illustrations, so when I wasn’t focused on the story I was admiring the lovely pictures.

Overall, this was super enjoyable! I’d highly recommend it if you love graphic novels and steampunk!

Four out of five stars!

  1. I read Westerfeld’s Leviathan series forever ago and loved it! Haven’t felt drawn to the genre since then, but it is fun. This GN sounds amazing! Thanks for the review!


  2. Interesting! I love steampunk and cyberpunk concept where small details mean big changes. Light bulb? Gas lamp! Washing machine? Ummm how about a new invention of washing machine but also totally different!
