    About "Morgan L. Busse"

      • Morgan L. Busse

        Morgan L Busse is a writer by day and a mother by night She is the author of the Follower of the Word series and the award winning steampunk series, The Soul Chronicles Her debut novel, Daughter of Light, was a Christy and Carol Award finalist During her spare time she enjoys playing games, taking long walks, and dreaming about her next novel.


    1. I was waiting on pins and needles until this book came out! I've read a few steampunk books, but so far, I've never read a Christian steampunk. Plus I loved Morgan Busse's Follower of the Word series, so I knew I'd get a treat. This book didn't disappoint. The beginning started slow, but it built into an adventure as Kat and Stephen tried to evade bounty hunters. Some of the the twists at the end literally had me gasping outloud. While Kat does have what might be called "powers," they aren't por [...]

    2. This may have been the most awkward/confusing book ever.Lovely Things:- The plot. This was literally SO INTRIGUING. I could not put this book down, for that reason alone. Usually plots don't engage me THAT much - it's the characters who grab my attention - but this book had a solidly original plot.- The setting. STEAMPUNKKKKK. I'm kind of a sucker for anything in that genre. :P The setting reminded me of Victorian London with airships and mechanical birds and creepy laboratories and bounty hunte [...]

    3. General comments/updates I didn't get a chance to post:There's definitely a lot of physical attraction between the two MCs. It never gets too detailed (some kissing later on and just enough detail to get a sense of the pleasure involved), but it was still enough for me to go, "Um far is this going to go?!?"But I trust this author, and she delivered on that trust. :DAll in all: two wonderfully broken characters on the rough road to healing, a steampunk world, a definite "Frankenstein" vibe, and t [...]

    4. I like steampunk and really enjoyed this. It's one of those books that will stay with me. I need to get the next in the series. The descriptions were vivid and drew me into the story. I felt Kat's fear as she tried to quell the power within her. I liked the way the relationship between Kat and the gorgeous Stephen Grey slowly blossomed. So I struggled to believe he would turn her over to her evil scientist father. It's a great story full of strong characters.If I have one complaint it's that the [...]

    5. I've marked this book as fantasy, but it's more parallel world than that.And before I launch into my full review, what is it with parallel worlds and airships? Every single parallel world novel I've read has them, as does just about every TV show episode I've ever seen set in a parallel world. It's nuts!But now to this story.Tainted was well-written and enjoyable. It kept going at a good pace, which is what usually holds my interest. I found its characters and their dilemmas interesting and grip [...]

    6. I think this is a great book! I had never read a steampunk novel before, so was not exactly sure what to expect, but I really liked it! In fact, I read it much more quickly than I thought I would because it was hard to put it down. :) I like both of the main characters-Kat and Stephen. I like the story too, and, of course, now I am wanting to know what happens next! I love the "era" of the story, the machines, etc. I also love that it doesn't have a bunch of sleaziness, like others of this genre [...]

    7. This is my first full-fledged Steampunk novel that I've read and I throughly enjoyed it. It kinda had a Victorianesque feel about it with lots of dark places and Dickensian-style buildings and such.I really like Kat, the story's main character. She has these strange powers that she doesn't really understand and attends a wacky science school where she doesn't really fit in. Kat meets Stephen and he eventually comes alongside her to try to help her better understand her powers.Her dad is a great [...]

    8. This is a steampunk adventure with a heroine possessing mysterious powers and a hero who doesn't trust women. It starts rather slow, and it took me some time to become attached to the characters, but it was well worth sticking with the story for a great payoff. :-) Not a light read--it has some dark themes and scary moments, and the villian is uber-creepy and evil.Overall, I enjoyed this book very much and now look forward to the second in the series!

    9. This book has been on my tbr since before it was published and I'm happy to have finally had the time to read it. Fantasy doesn't tend to be my go-to genre, but I was drawn to this book because of its steampunk element. Busse's storyline and world building held my attention while provided a much needed break from the ordinary. 3 Stars = Good

    10. 3.5 stars. Definitely enjoyed it, but I guess I was expecting something a little more? I liked Kat for sure. I thought she was a very interesting person and well developed and her power thing is very intriguing! Was hoping for more with her friend, but maybe that will come in book 2. Stephen on the other hand - I thought he was a little generic maybe? I don't know, he kind of fell flat for me. But the world was awesome. I love steampunk and this was well done. (More airships please! :P) There wa [...]

    11. Tainted by Morgan Busse is a switch in genres for her. Or is it subgenre? Cross-genre? Anyhow, the book is a steampunk adventure with fantasy elements making it very different from the High Fantasy/Heroic Fantasy that was her last series The Follower of the Word.Tainted is the story of a young woman named Kathryn Bloodmayne, who is eager to attend the prestigious school commonly called "The Tower" as part of a new initiative to allow young women into the ranks of the sceintific leadership of Wor [...]

    12. I love steampunk. It’s one of my favorite kinds of world-building, and if I had any free time at all, I’d be spending it making cool steampunk things. So when Morgan L. Busse (author of The Follower of the Word trilogy) announced she was publishing a steampunk novel, I had to jump aboard to read and review.Fortunately, this book doesn’t disappoint. Tainted is a solid foray into YA fiction with a likable heroine, a fantastic world, and a fast-paced narrative delivered in Busse’s usual dir [...]

    13. *my rating is actually 4.5 stars*I bought this book months ago and finally had the time to read it and it totally amazed me from the beginning! The cover totally grabbed my attention and Kat's character really resonated with me, I was truly blessed by this story and I'm eager to know how the rest of the series will turn out <3Stephen is a detective turned bounty hunter (he dryly jokes that his title is Fugitive Recovery Agent but he's really deadly with those pistols and he ALWAYS catches his [...]

    14. Tainted is the first book in a new steampunk series by Morgan L. Busse. This first book is a great opener to the world of the Soul Chronicles. Kat Bloodmayne is a gifted scientist with a dark secret. Her fears and challenges find full display, drawing the reader in and making her a worthy heroine to root for. As a reader, I wanted to see her use her abilities, but I was conflicted because I knew the risk it meant for her.The other main character, Stephen Grey, is an intriguing policeman turned b [...]

    15. Wow! Wow! Wow!I loved everything about this steampunk novel, from the mechanical bird name Cricket to the description of the different modes of transportation. I didn't think that Morgan Busse could exceed the excellence of her Follower of Word series, but she did. Tainted is amazing! There is murder, suspense, romance and the wonderful Stephen Grey. This is a must read and must have in your book library. Find out what happens to the lovely Kat Bloodmayne who thinks she is tainted. What happens [...]

    16. When I heard there was a Christian steampunk book coming out I got super excited. Steampunk, when done right, is one of the most fun genres for me to read and I've got to say I had a lot of fun reading Tainted. I felt that the story was very unique and I loved the main characters. The descriptions jumped off the page and I could picture everything perfectly, like a big budget movie.I'd highly recommend Tainted to everyone, lovers of steampunk and even those who've never tried the genre before. I [...]

    17. 4.5/5.0“Tainted” is a steampunk fantasy novel that includes complex world-building, three-dimensional characters, and a strong, thoughtful, emotional undercurrentRead full review in the 2016 July/August issue of InD'tale Magazine.

    18. Dear Tainted,Um, I read you in one day. You are kind of AMAZING! BUT HOW AM I SUPPOSE TO COPE NOW?!I NEED THE NEXT BOOK!RIGHT NOW! BECAUSETHAT ENDING!!! GAH!I've been tainted!Sincerely, Emmy

    19. This was my first read by Ms. Busse and I enjoyed it. I was hooked from the get go and had to keep reading to find out what happened to Kat. I was a little disappointed it didn't resolve at the end but not so much where I won't pick up book 2. I look forward to finishing the series.

    20. Tainted is a Steampunk novel set in a Victorian-style fantasy world that doesn’t feel all too different from most London settings. Kat is mostly alone—with a dead mother and a mad scientist father who spends all his time away from her, on his projects, and she’s left raised by paid staff, a woman who ends up a relation to the other main character, who is a detective become bounty hunter after his life goes wrong.Morgan Busse does about as excellent a job as possible as setting up sympathet [...]

    21. I'm not real sure what "steampunk" is or what makes this book "steampunk". Don't let that classification turn you off from reading this book. Morgan did not disappoint the reader with this book. It's well thought out with well developed characters. I'm not sure why some reviewers found parts of this book offensive. I like good, clean books. This is a fantasy novel, but most of the names are understandable and not too far fetched. I look forward to reading "Awakened".

    22. This book started out as interesting. Then we get near the end it goes to shit.I'm all for praying, don't get me wrong, but I'm a firm believer in God helping those who also help themselves; meaning don't just be a lump and be non-proactive. Help yourself too.I hate to say that Stephen Grey's character really disappointed me. Kat's character was slightly better, but again there was that passivity that rally made me want to slap her.I won't bother with the next book.

    23. Eager for the next one!This is my first steampunk novel, so I can't judge it relative to other books in this genre. But in and of itself, I found it thoroughly entertaining. It was quick paced, action packed, and enough romance to ensure some sexual energy. Definitely a "page turner". It left me eager for some more.

    24. Amazing from beginning to endI have read Mrs. Busse work before. Her Daughter of Light series was amazing and I haven't been disappointed with this new book either. I can't wait to read Awakened the sequel. If you like fantasy this series will not disappoint.

    25. Amazing read!I stayed up to 3am reading this. Loved it. Would have loved it more it ended in a book. But I am looking forward to the next installment regardless. On another note it could use some **** between scene changes to allow for a smoother transition.

    26. Did not like the way she left much undone at the end.I am assuming there will be a sequel or a trilogy to wrap it up. Science Fiction.ting read.

    27. I’m honestly not sure which genre this book falls into: I’ve seen it described as “steam punk” and “fantasy.” Is it one of them? Both? I’m pretty new to the fantasy scene, having only read a few books in the genre, but I’ve come to really enjoy some of those I’ve read. Being so new to the genre, I had no idea what to expect from this book. I read the premise and was immediately fascinated by the idea. It was a bit odd for me, yes. But it sounded so intriguing that I couldn’t [...]

    28. "Tainted" the first in the "Soul Chronicles Series" combines mystery, the supernatural, and steampunk in an adventure that begins when Kat Bloodmayne, a young woman hiding a deadly secret graduates from the Tower Academy of Sciences where her estranged father is the head scientist. At the gala ceremony when she and her friend Marianne are accosted by fellow student Blaylock Sterling and his cronies in the hallway, Kat unleashes a power that she not only dreads and can't control but which kills a [...]

    29. Tainted by Morgan L. Busse was a wonderful read. I’ve read her other books in the past and I was excited to hear she was writing in a new genre as well. This book didn’t disappoint. It follows the story of "Kat" Bloodmayne who wants nothing more than to rid herself of the strange power that possesses her. She desperately tries to hide her power from everyone including her own father. After one terrible night her power gets the best of her and her world comes crashing down. Afraid and alone s [...]
