A Heart for Copper

A Heart for Copper

Genre: Steampunk

An automaton created by an inventor’s son, Copper has finally been given a heart by her young master. Her choice of whether to keep the key or give it to him will decide her fate in this steampunk fairy tale.

Will she join his family in their English country manor, where she’ll be forced to consider the question of whether she’s really human? Or will she search out the quirky alchemist responsible for giving her life? Will her master hold onto her heart, or will she be tempted by the charms of an automaton man?

REVIEW

I loved “Choose Your Own Adventure” books as a child they were just plain fun. Strangely enough they have not seemed to have had a resurgence like Pokemon and Power Rangers and in my opinion they are far more deserving of a reboot. However Silk Words has taken my beloved “CYOA” format and blended it with another love of mine romance. Truly it is an idiot proof combination and when I saw the author of A Heart for Copper was none other than Sharon Lynn Fisher author of one of my favorite books of all time Ghost Planet I was sold.

A Heart for Copper was a lovely story think Pinocchio without all the lying and that unfortunate nose business, with a touch of Blade Runner. Copper is an automaton with awareness and like the wooden puppet from the 19th century children’s novel she dreams of being “real”. When her wish is granted there are those who would deny her of her long held desires.

Given it’s brevity A Heart for Copper would be an excellent choice if you have not read any of Sharon Lynn Fisher’s full length novels. Despite it’s relatively short length Ms Fisher revisits a running theme in her work “what it means to be human” and a seemingly impossible love. Even if you have read Ghost Planet or The Ophelia Prophecy reading A Heart for Copper is an excellent way to pass the time while waiting for her next novel Echo 8’s 2015 release.

About the Author

Sharon-Lynn-Fisher-Author-PhotoI write stories for the geeky at heart — meaty mash-ups of sci-fi, suspense, and romance, with no apology for the latter. I live where it rains nine months of the year. And I have a strange obsession with gingers (down to my freaky orange cat).

I have two sci-fi romance novels published with Tor Books, and a third on the way. I also have a zombie-ish story, RED, in progress on Wattpad (free!).

Ghost Planet – Sharon Lynn Fisher

Ghost Planet Cover Elizabeth Cole is dead, she just doesn’t know it yet. How would you react if faced with an exact living breathing sentient replica of a significant, if not beloved person from your past… who also happens to be dead? Would you embrace them or renounce their existence, denying them and allowing them to be treated as second class citizens as per the Ghost Protocol? These are the questions asked in Sharon Lynn Fisher’s dynamic debut novel Ghost Planet.

Ardagh 1 is in the process of being colonized, and psychologist Elizabeth Cole has accepted a position as a therapist to aid the colonists adaptation to living there. The same issue that has haunted many colonists over the centuries is happening on Ardagh 1, how to supress the  indigenous population only in the case of this novel for each colonist that arrives a strange phenomena takes place an alien “ghost” is manifested who has a symbiotic bond with the host colonist. These ghosts do not know that they are not dead, they do not know that they are not in fact the person of whom they are a perfect clone of.

Psychologist Elizabeth Cole prepared for the worst when she accepted a job on a newly discovered world—a world where every colonist is tethered to an alien who manifests in the form of a dead loved one. But she never expected she’d struggle with the requirement to shun these “ghosts.” She never expected to be so attracted to the charming Irishman assigned as her supervisor. And she certainly never expected to discover she died in a transport crash en route to the planet.

As a ghost, Elizabeth is symbiotically linked to her supervisor, Murphy—creator of the Ghost Protocol, which forbids him to acknowledge or interact with her. Confused and alone—oppressed by her ghost status and tormented by forbidden love—Elizabeth works to unlock the secrets of her own existence.

But her quest for answers lands her in a tug-of-war between powerful interests, and she soon finds herself a pawn in the struggle for control of the planet…a struggle that could separate her forever from the man that she loves.

I think it is harder to write a review of a book you truly love because you cannot help but feel that anything you add would be inadequate, which is how I feel about this wonderful sci-fi/romance by Sharon Lynn Fisher. This novel combines all the best things about science fiction and romance novels in general. The world building is exquisite, the plot twists are frequent and unexpected the characters of Elizabeth and Murphy are fascinating and believable. I couldn’t read this novel fast enough and I definitely will be adding it to my “insurance against the apocalypse” collection. I found it ironic that Linnea Sinclair another one of my all time favorite sci-fi writers endorsed this book because if I were to compare Ghost Planet to any other work it would be to the best of Ms. Sinclair’s.

If you are a fan of science fiction or even just a good old fashioned action packed romance then Ghost Planet is for you. It is with bated breath that I anticipate Ms. Fisher’s next novel The Ophelia Prophecy due out in February of next year, it is going to be a long six months.
