Angelique Anderson A Steampunk Christmas Carol

This new take on the classic tale is both enjoyable and intriguing.

The steampunk elements added a different element, and the design of the spiritual world which Anderson has created and is really interesting. This spiritual layer of ‘administration’ is superimposed seamlessly over the Victorian society of which Dickens also wrote in ‘A Christmas Carol’, upon which this story idea is based.

The characters of Wylie and Adrian are likeable, and serve as an effective foil to Langdon, whose selfish and greedy ways come under scrutiny as the story progresses.

This novella works quite well as a stand-alone story, but is also interesting enough to make the reader want to read the rest of Anderson’s Dracosinum Tales series.

‘A Steampunk Christmas Carol’ is suitable reading for YA and older readers.
