Kurzbeschreibung

Self-taught tinkerer Kali McAlister is determined to build an airship and escape the frigid Yukon forever. Unfortunately, she’s the heir to the secrets of flash gold, an alchemical energy source that tends to make her a popular target for bandits, gangsters, and pirates.

With the help of her bounty-hunting business partner, Cedar, Kali has outwitted and eluded attackers before, and she thinks she’s prepared for anything. Then her ex-fiancé strolls into her workshop.

As if fooling her once wasn’t enough, he aims to embroil her in a fresh scheme. Meanwhile, a new nemesis is stalking her, a shrouded figure with an arsenal of deadly machines that make Kali’s inventions seem like toys. This time, it’ll take more than her ingenuity and Cedar’s combat skills to survive.

Hunted is a 27,000-word steampunk novella.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lovely little romp 21. Dezember 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am becoming a big fan of LIndsay Buroker's writing style and imagination. This is a novella and yet has several intertwining plots. The steampunk yukon setting is a nice change and the action is quite fun to read. As normal with Lindsay's books, the main character is a strong woman trying to achieve her goals in the world with a strong-silent supporting male.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another fun novella from Lindsey Buroker. 24. Oktober 2011
Von Megan Hicks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Hunted was a fun follow up to Lindsey Buroker's first Flash Gold novella. My review of her earlier effort sums up my feelings on the series, but I'll reiterate it here: the Flash Gold series is fast and fun. I appreciated getting some of my questions from the first novella answered. Fun dialogue, interesting, likeable characters, and a quick moving plot all make Hunted well worth the money you'd spend on it and the hour or so it takes to read.

A few things, however, could use some polishing. There were a few moments when the characters used obviously modern slang (I'm thinking of Sebastian saying "sexed up" in particular) that pulled me out of the story. In a steampunk work, I don't expect exact historical accuracy, I expect an imitation of historical speech that readers can understand. There were a few other such moments, I think, but this example is particularly egregious and easily fixed, so I hope that modern slang is something that Buroker will be more aware of in her next effort. Also, I felt that at times, the action scenes were a bit drawn out, particularly towards the end. As a reader who prefers less dialogue, more action, I'd like to see a bit more of a balance there.

That said, I am looking forward to another Flash Gold novella!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Inventive, Fun and Entertaining 27. Januar 2012
Von C. Irish - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Kali's dream of building an airship to sail out of the frigid Yukon is her main ambition but she keeps getting herself in trouble with people who want to steal her 'limited' knowledge of her deceased father's invention. People come out of the woodwork to hunt her down, and this includes her dubious, last lover, Sebastian. Just when things are calming down a bit and she wants to get working on her airship, Sebastian shows up with a job offer. With Cedar, luckily, in tow, the two set off on an adventure that will also allow Cedar to hunt someone near and dear to his heart, his brother's murderer.

There's more steampunk magic in this installment of the adventures of Kali and Cedar, an unlikely duo from the town of Moose Hollow in the Yukon. Lindsay has created a fun and adventurous serial that will keep this reader coming back for more. The writing is crisp, the ideas fresh and fun and the characters are ones I will be rooting for whenever I can get a new story to read. The contraptions are fun and Kali is a whiz with tools and gadgets while Cedar is just a handy bounty hunter to have around.

In Hunted, May has arrived and the miners are settling in again to mine the gold on the river. More than one person has their eye on Kali, and for very different reasons. Catch the Gold Flash Fever and check out this steampunk series, I don't think you'll be disappointed if you like action, adventure and a little peck of romance.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The adventures of Kali and Cedar continue . . . 13. August 2011
Von J.E. Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Once again, Miss Buroker produces an entertaining tale of adventure and danger in her sequel to 'Flash Gold'. Kali has managed to set up another shop with her new partner, Cedar, and things seem relatively calm for them until Kali's old beau shows up with a business proposition and Cedar gets wind of his long-time nemesis being in town. Of course, mayhem and chaos ensue and the two of them soon become caught up in a deadly situation.

I think one of my favorite aspects of this series is how the characters find their way out of tight situations: not with mere brute force (which Cedar could get away with considering his excellent marksmanship), but by also thinking things through and using the laws of physics to outmaneuver their enemies when all odds seem to be stacked against them. I was also happy with the further development of Kali and Cedar's relationship in this book, as well as their growth as individuals. The reader is shown a brief glimpse into their pasts and we finally get to learn Cedar's real name. Also, the arrival of a new threat, an old business partner of Kali's father and her own intriguig inventions, helps set up a new challenge for Kali and Cedar they'll have to face in (hopefully) future books.

In conclusion, the character development, once again, is up to my strict standards; the action is, if not constantly present, always looming in the background waiting to thwart our heroes; we get another fun invention or two from Kali (I especially like the spud gun at the end); and the reader is introduced to another formidable enemy who may or may not have survived the battle at the end of the book. A very entertaining read indeed! My only question is: how long will we have to wait for 'Flash Gold' book three?

I'm not usually someone who reads series, but this one has me hooked. I love the dynamic between Kali and Cedar, and I also appreciate the inventive well-paced plot. Keep up the good work Ms. Buroker. You've won yourself another fan!
