Badlands by Seleste DeLaney


For a Novella, this was great. I would LOVE to see this world explored more fully. I am completely interested in learning more about the Badlands. The majority of this novel took place aboard the Dark Hawk Ship, manned by Captain Spencer Pierce. Amongst the crew; Henri {Medic} Zeke {Warrior/Weapons} Noah {Mechanic}.

This novel made subtle references to steam punk, it wasn’t all gadgets, gizmos and glorified steam engines.

Moreover, this novel was more Romance based. I liked Ever. She was very strong, and loyal to her lands and queen. The problem I had with Ever lay with Zeke, but you can read for yourself to see how things play out.

Spencer was great for such a short novel. I liked his calm, steadfast mindset.

The romance between Spencer and Ever was believable.

I liked the twists the author threw at us at the end.

Thank goodness for an epilogue!

I hope Seleste DeLaney writes more in this world.
