    1. A book that passes the Bechdel test with flying colors. All the important characters are women and the guy who would be a love interest in any other telling of this story only appears sporadically and only gets a couple kisses near the end. Maybe it's just the circles I run in, but it seems if you want good genre fiction led by women characters, look no further than steampunk. Although, this book is like steampunk's weird cousin.The Razor's Edge posits a strange world that took me a little bit o [...]

    2. Review originally at Fantasy Book CriticANALYSIS: After being introduced to Joseph R. Lewis’s writing in the form of the Other Earth books, I was very curious to see what else he has written. On checking his website I saw a brand new book being released called Zelda Pryce: The Razor’s Edge, two things nudged my curiosity, the reference to the classic Princess Zelda video games and the fact that this was going to steampunk-ish YA caper (of sorts) novel. I was partly right in my assumptions ab [...]

    3. This was my second LibraryThing Member Giveaway by Joss Llewelyn; the first, Daphne and the Silver Ash, was so good I pounced on this the moment I saw it. (Unfortunately, it took me a lot longer to get around to it than I'd have liked. Story of my life, lately.)This was wonderful fun. Except for that, it couldn't be much more different from its predecessor. It's much lighter and quicker than Daphne; whereas that was like an illuminated manuscript of a fairy tale, this is a present-day steampunk [...]

    4. Zelda Pryce: The Razor's Edge is a creative delight, full of strange devices and a perky main character that is hard not to love.Zelda is a teen genius. She's a geometrix, which means she creates arcane objects to help her in her security business. She hires herself to museums to try to steal objects to test and improve security.The book starts out with a bang, as Zelda is in the Smithsonian trying to steal a couple of very important arcane artifacts. She's successful, and feels that her busines [...]

    5. The first book in the Zelda Pryce series.Zelda Pryce is a geomatrix and a security consultant. She uses arcane science to create devices which looks like magic to the untrained people. As a security consultant it’s her job to test the security of places; essentially she’s hired to break into places and steal things (which she then gives back of course). She’s just graduated from her arcane science school and started her career. Her first job is to break in to the Smithsonian and take the N [...]

    6. "We're all alone and the fate of all the arcana in the entire world, as well as a lot of innocent lives, rests on whether or not we can stop a librarian from finding a butterfly"When security consultant Zelda Pryce gets a handwritten request from the British Museum asking her to test its security, she never imagines it would lead to a chase across the Europe and Asia with a secret agent, trying to stop an elderly anarchist from creating massive, worldwide destruction. Fortunately, she has the us [...]

    7. I’m not sure if I can classify this book as steampunk. . .but I really want to. There are strange devices all over the place, but they are in no way what I would call clockwork. I would like to call them magic, but it is clearly stated that it isn’t. They make me want to live in Zelda’s world so that I can play with them, they sounded so cool.This book is loaded with weird terms, and even stranger things. It was a little hard to get used to it all, but once I let go of the fact that everyt [...]

    8. Opening Sentence Teaser"Hey Zel, has anyone else ever robbed the Smithsonian's Museum of Arcane Science Before?"ReviewI received this book in a giveaway from Librarything from the author in return for a honest review. The book is about Zelda Pryce a 19 year old security expert who doesn't use the typical tools of the trade. Zelda breaks into her favorite museum the Smithsonian to take a obtain a few things as a test. She is then hired to break into a British museum but learns that she wasn't hir [...]

    9. A fun adventurous read. I am not sure I would classify this as a steampunk tale, it certainly isn't within a steampunk world, this is set within our modern day era. If your definition of steampunk requires dirigibles (airships) or a time period near the Victorian age this will not fulfill expectations. If your definition of steampunk requires zombies, once again they are absent. This tale actually gives more of a Warehouse 13 kind of vibe. Museums hold among regular old artifacts, arcane artifac [...]

    10. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book. The idea that ideas like Occam's Razor could be tied into an actual object, a real razor, tickles my imagination into crazy dances. Zelda Pryce: The Razor's Edge is the first in what could be a very enjoyable series of young adult reader books. A young American Geometrix (an inventor who uses arcane theories in her work) is set on a course to save the world with the help of a french spy, and a dapper English Riskbender (someone who can tell the cha [...]

    11. Anyone who has ever watched a few episodes of the show Warehouse 13 will find the plot of this book very familiar. Pretty good show by the way. The beginning was a little hard to follow but once I made that connection it was a lot easier to get into the flow of the book. That being said this was a great book. Great action and mental drama with little romance to distract from that.The focus was more on Zelda's field of work and how arcane objects operate. The character development was well done d [...]

    12. This was an extremely enticing book; even though I was falling asleep from fishing, I couldn't quite reading it until I was done. The scientific items started out as confusing but once I got it through my head that they aren't real life objects, the book flew by much smoother. There should be a sequal and Zelda should continue her work and relationship with well, I'll let some facts stay secret. The last few pages explain about the different objects and where the idea for them originated whiched [...]

    13. This was an extremely quick and light read. Zelda is a geometrix who is ambitious and decides to take up a security assignment in Europe.So begins the story of a cross continent chase to catch the graphologer who dared to take undue advantage of her.The world building is extremely unique and the book started off as a 5 star rated book for me but at some point transformed into a very predictable story arc. The characterization is a little shallow but is completely excused considering the short le [...]

    14. This was a very creative and easy to follow, fun read. I would have liked the characters to be a little more likable. I didn't really connect with any of them and experienced most of them as kind of bland. Also, I thought that certain problematic situations were solved the easy way. Too easy for my taste. Of course it doesn't always have to be complicated and twisted, but some things were just too unlikely even for this kind of book, full of arcane (not magical!) machines and beings. Overall I r [...]

    15. I really enjoyed reading The Razor's Edge. Zelda is a likeable and capable protagonist, and the rest of the cast is also very well-written. Apart from the exciting story, I really enjoyed the descriptions of the various cities Zelda travels to. The various arcana (the steampunk-like inventions in the book) are also very interesting and I loved reading about the real-life historical inspirations behind their names and effects at the end of the book.

    16. I received an e-copy of this book through a Library Thing member giveaway from the author, Joss Llewelyn. Thank you!I really enjoyed this book and the creative premise. The alternate world Llewelyn creates is similar yet the use of arcane as a standard science is intriguing. I enjoyed Zelda as a heroine; she has a good heart but not a big head. I am looking forward to reading the next in the series.

    17. Fun, harmless read. A young security analysis who uses steam punkish devices has to stop a woman from destroying all the arcana in the world. Wow, that made no sense is writing it, but its fun and it don't hurt none. It was a book that I read while I walked the dog in the morning, and for that it was perfect.

    18. Another awesome book! Keep up the good work.

    19. Ehhh, it was alright. Things moved too quickly with Zelda being too on the ball for someone not trained in field operations. Maybe I would've enjoyed it more if I were younger.
