The Sauder Diaries - By Any Other Name - Michel R. Vaillancourt
Utterly absorbing. A story of honour and adventure.

Stylistically, works brilliantly that each chapter begins with an extract from Hans's diary, followed by the rollicking adventures.

It's a fine line to balance the harsh consequences of actions with hope and mercy. "By Any Other Name" does this well.

It's part coming-of-age, part quest ... and opens the door to a series that I hope we get many more of. The characters are complicated and appealing. The world is vivid.

Superb steampunk adventure!
