This is the story of Jamaican agent Desmond Coke and a young boy Lij Tafari on the run Coke wants Lij to have a normal life but because of who he is that seems improbable as there are many seeking his capture for reasons that are dribbled out over the short course of the book The book suffers from trying to do too many things in too short a number of pages 146 the unUnited States are a bunch of warring territories with differing politics steampunk devices and technology abound a Pinkerton detective working for an unknown party etc A mile wide but only an inch deep Broaddus should expand this novella into a full length novel to provide a enriching experience for his readers

Having stumbled onto a plot within his homeland of Jamaica former espionage agent Desmond Coke finds himself caught between warring religious and political factions all vying for control of a myste. Fantastic opening and fascinating characters with a great set up but didn't entirely work for me in the end It felt like a section of a full length book lots crammed in alt history semi mystical story themes several plotlines and mystery but I didn't feel it all had the space it needed to breathe and develop and for the plot to work itself out This may be in part because alt history is a challenge when you are ignorant of the actual history as I am so it took me forever to work out what probably would seem obvious to US readers Also I need to stop believing I will one day like steampunk because it isn't happening So this probably just wasn't for me Amazing cover Should win awards

Buffalo SoldierObtain the secrets held within Lij for her employer aloneAssassins intrigue and steammen stand between Desmond and Lij as they search for a place to call home in a North America that could have be. I really ought to have loved this speculative short novel but I didn't and it bums me outSet in an alternative now where the US is broken into smaller countries Five Civilized Tribes which is a conglomeration of US IndianNative American tribes I believe the industrialized Tejas and puppet state of Albion among others the story follows a Jamaican secret agent Desmond Coke who has smuggled a young boy from Jamaica in hopes of keeping him safe from a variety of nefarious forces It takes most of the novel to learn why they're being pursued and it's an intriguing premise Desmond's work is hampered by geopolitical drama and some good old fashioned double crossing and with the 'Old West' ambiance and technology it has the feel of Firefly or other weird West style storiesAnd yetI wanted I think were this a full length novel it would have worked; the novella format didn't serve the setting or characters Full disclosure I've been working my way through Tor's novella series and I'm actually not enjoying most of them so it really maybe be me and not this book There's a seuel coming and I intend to read it because I want of the world Broaddus imaginesInitial ThoughtsReally ambivalent about this one Mostly enjoyed it but at moments it felt very thin World building so deeply intriguing Characters a bit flimsy But really fab to read a steampunk y speculative histfuture fic featuring almost entirely POC characters Longer review to come
