After a car wreck takes the lives of his parents, Colt moves to Arizona to stay with his grandfather. There, an informant tells him that his parents were actually murdered because his mom, a journalist, was getting ready to write a story exposing Trident Industries. Along with Oz and Danielle, his new comrades at Chandler High, Colt vows to uncover the truth. But the more they learn, the more bizarre reality becomes. Mind control, jet packs, and flying motorcycles only scratch the surface of what they discover. Colt is recruited by a secret organization called the Central Headquarters Against the Occult and Supernatural. But the battle isn't just against an out-of-control giant corporation. A gateway to another world is opening, and the invasion has already begun.

Perhaps, you're scratching your head over this one. One friend of mine gave me the most curious look when I mentioned my read this week. She's been pestering me for some time to read a really good vampire novel (I guess we'll just have to wait and see on that one!) and in the process I told her about Steampunk. Yes, Virginia, this really is a genre. Other than watching the dreadful movie Time Machine, this was my first encounter (Oh wait, I did catch that Castle episode as well!) with Steampunk.
So, this week I hunkered down and cracked open George Mann's The Affinity Bridge. I like the cover art, but after reading it, I kind of wish they'd gone with an automaton on the cover. The description of those little clockwork men is creepy! The author, George Mann, is the head of a major British SF/Fantasy publishing imprint. He's also done his share of editing in the past (keep this in mind as I move into my review). Mann has edited the Solaris Book of New Science Fiction anthology series. He's also written numerous other works of fiction and nonfiction. The Affinity Bridge was published in 2009, through A Tor Book. This novel is the first in the 'Newbury & Hobbes Investigation' series.
