Reviews - Addleton Heights



'A Steampunk novel for everyone (even those who don’t know what Steampunk is!). It’s witty, fun, exciting and inventive, and is packed with characters you really care about. George Wright Padgett hits all the right notes!'

—Jonathan Maberry

'A Gritty SteamPunk Noir. Good old fashioned fun.'

—D. Heyen

'We meet Kip on New Year's Eve 1901 getting his ribs kicked in by thugs. It only gets worse for him from there, which is better for us as readers.'

—S. Winton

'Everything I never knew I wanted from a steampunk novel. Absolutely smashing fun and excitement with guns, girls, explosions, cool funky technology, and a mystery that kept me guessing til the very end.'

—J. Kristopher

'With a richly developed world reminiscent of Metropolis, a mystery on par with The Maltese Falcon, and characters as in depth as Casablanca, this is a blockbuster story you absolutely have to read.'

—L. King

'George Wright Padgett's richly envisioned world of haves and have-nots, of floating homes and clockwork biomech, is unlike any other I've encountered in the genre. Top if off with a streetwise, cynical detective caught in a life-and-death mystery, and you've got yourself one heck of a story.'

—D. Young

'A very fun read. Great immersive setting, tremendously fun slang, characters to love and hate, and genuinely exciting action.'

—H. Ritz


‘Thorogood Kipsey is my new favorite private detective.’
