This book started out strong and very interesting. It's an alternate Europe that mixes supernatural and steampunk, which is part of what drew me because I love it when the two are mixed. Don't be deceived by the title though, dragons aren't gallivanting through England. I don't want to give away too much there, but let's just say they are more of a metaphor than a physical thing, so this novella in the series isn't as heavy on the fantasy as it sounds. I found myself cheering for Melody and warming up to Victor despite some of his old-fashioned (then in fashion) ways and beliefs.

Interesting. I go more for the dragons than the dirigibles myself - not any flying lizards in my novels, but a lot of Magick.

   I don't know if you are into role-playing at all, but there is an old RPG called Castle falkentein, set in Victorian times, which did have dragons.
