One of the recent reviews for The Sensaurum and The Lexis

Reviewed in the United States on March 26, 2020

Richard’s latest offering is a steampunk delight. His plot twists keep the pace moving speedily and yet there are fragile human moments interspersed throughout. The action is presented realistically, with a side helping of serious Victorian common sense maintaining its stiff upper lip.

I chuckled at a few hidden gems of wit in unexpected places, delightfully reminding me of Sir Terry Pratchett’s pithy style of prose. This is definitely a page-turner where the mundane world as we know it, has been turned quite solidly on its head and presented from a delicious new viewpoint.

I look forward to reading the dashing exploits of our heroic couple in the next book.
