    One thought on “Old Bony Blue Eyes”

    1. Kadmeion the wizard, his narfleet assistant Bright, and his waredog familiar Furgo, set out on a dangerous quest to retrieve an important artefact from the powerful wizard of Death.This book's genre is described as Clockpunk Wizard, a new experience for me. It reminded me of something that might be written by a combined effort between Enid Blyton and Tolstoy – fascinating. All the characters are from the world of fantasy: dragons, fairies, elfs, wizards, clockwork automatons, etc. The characte [...]

    2. This was an extremely well-written work of fantasy clockpunk. This is actually the first time I've dipped my toe in this genre, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I liked it! It helped that this was so well-written and very polished.So we have Kadmeion, who is a wizard. Bright is half elf, and Furgo is a shifter. The characters are all well-drawn. While Kadmeion was a little dry and humor-less, this is a trait that is fairly common among wizards, and a trait that Kadmeion acknowledges and desires [...]

    3. Old Bony Blue Eyes catapults you into a fantasy kaleidoscope, a world of airships and automatons, summoned demons and sweet-scented magical spells, a clockwork pilot and weredog boy, and a dragon who needs a very great favor. And then you meet Lady Luck, along with a pair of her delightful children, and Sir Death, otherwise known as Old Bony Blue Eyes, who is much more likeable than anyone could have imagined.At times, this book reminded me of Piers Anthony, both the Xanth series, and the Incarn [...]

    4. Lita Burke's Old Bony Blue Eyes is an entertaining story set in a richly inventive fantasy world. Though this is the third entry in Burke's Clockpunk Wizard series, it is admittedly the first I have read. Thankfully, Burke has done a wonderful job of making the story accessible to newcomers to the series.The story starts by plunging the reader into an exciting fight between Bright, wizard Kadmeion's half-elf clockworks magician assistant, and a Goon sent by Lady Betrayal to collect on a favor ow [...]

    5. Having recently reviewed Ephraim’s Curious Device, you all know that I am a fan of Lita Burke’s clockpunk stories. It is not the type of fantasy where trolls, elves, dwarfs, and assorted warriors are in constant sword-fight mode trying to destroy an evil, world-conquering dark lord. This series is a lighter, more whimsical fantasy. It reminds me of the old Jack Vance Lyonesse trilogy which is now out of fashion but is a wonderful series. Here, the magic and the characters are the focus.The m [...]

    6. I'm fast becoming a fan of Ms Burke - for her books just keep getting better and better. Her fantasy has adult themes and humour without being overly graphic, but the magic of the story just permeates everythinge characters, the world and how everything comes together. I burst out laughing early on when the only male fae on board bemoans the fact that he'll have to satisfy multiple female fae that nighte he doesn't think he'll have the stamina. Reminiscent of both the humour and fascinating stor [...]

    7. I must confess that the only reason I find myself venturing into Clockpunk is purely because of this author. Lita Burke is a phenomenal writer and I have previously enjoyed the Tredan’s Bane series. In a frighteningly unpredictable world containing dragons, wizards, harpies and wereboy’s, the characters of Kadmeion and Bright are so full of morality that it is refreshing. They are good men, in a world full of challenge and hazard. The storyline involves a quest and a few errands of mercy whi [...]

    8. An exciting wizard adventure I thoroughly enjoyed. A well told story that does not disappoint. All the hazards and magically terms are original in their application, as is the disk shaped world they live on. It would be great to read more on this world and how it came to be. Looking forward to Probability's visit with the Glitter Ponies and all the turmoil Sir Bright will encounter with his family,

    9. Kadmeion, Sir Bright and Furgo are generous and kindhearted, very likeable characters. Their world is beautiful.
