That's not to say that the battle sequences aren't effective (they are), or that exploration of how a mechanized tank would change war in a magical world isn't intriguing (it is). But really, what I came away from The Effigy Engine thinking about was the characters - the magic-wielding comrade whose beard has become a replica of an armada, our wryly funny narrator Watchdog who explains to us just how magic works here, or the commander who's quite literally a mother figure to him. The Effigy Engine might be a novella, but that short length doesn't keep it from building out a great world quickly, and giving the sense that there could easily be plenty of stories to come in this series - and I'd definitely pick them up.
Also I, along with my dog Goblin and cat One-Eye, appreciate the shout out given in the dedication! I'm sure it was appreciated and rightly so.
Apologies for this horribly rambling review!
However, I'm still waiting for the next in the Gentlemen Bastards series. If Mr. Lynch has abandoned that series, I do wish he would let people know
