    1. oh, buggerrst time I've ever been torn 'twixt one star rating and another to any degree worth bothering with a decimal.fanule's a wonderfully inviting main character, and the more I read of him the more I wanted to know of and/or have sex with hime setting is terrific. not as richly drawn as I'd have liked, but here and there are marvelously descriptive passages that made me want to run around learning about (and/or having sex with) everythinge secondary characters were powerfully enticing creat [...]


    2. The world building, guys, omigod! A Mechanical Circus, a town called Taintwell, a cat that can disassemble itself, and a group of people called Branded Mongrels. And the hero is called Fanule Perfidor, the Dog King. How is that not the best name you've ever heard outside Hogwarts? This is a mix of steampunk and paranormal fantasy, and it's a rollicking great story. I love steampunk when it's done well, and here it is definitely done well. There is a whole other world inside this book, and I've g [...]


    3. Fanule Perfidor is not a name, it's a magical spell that gives life to one of the hottest, sexiest, nicest, most compassionate, most sympathetic and BEST characters I've ever read. In the book everyone seems to be startled and awed by his physical presence and I have no doubt about it, because he takes possession of the heart and mind of the reader and then you're his. He has a dangerous and sinful aura, he has scars and he is probably bi-polar, going through mania and depression in phases, taki [...]


    4. I want a Mongrel like Fanule!!!nope. he is not a dog the is The Dog King the Eminence of Taintwell a light sucker yes, he is a lot of things, and I fall in love with this amazing character!Quick OverviewIn an fiction place there is a distinct difference between the humankind: Pures and Mongrels. While Pures are the normal and powerless humans, Mongrels can have physical or another abnormality that made them be feared, hated and persecuted. In this strange and cruel reality a Mongrel, Fanule Perf [...]


    5. This could have been amazing! I was really, really enjoying this book in the beginning.  It was unique.  It was dark. It was snarky. And I was really loving the world and the characters the author created.  But then I got bored.  It went from sexual tension to insta-love.  And I never felt the urgency of the mystery.  Where some things were detailed, others were glossed over and never explained. (view spoiler)[I never understood the importance of the ribbons (hide spoiler)]  I was t [...]


    6. Mongrel had been sitting, gathering dust on my Kindle for quite some time. The first time I tried to read it, I just wasn't in that mood. Having been chosen for me in the LGBT Fantasy Group challenge, and having just finished Third Daughter, an awesome (and diverse) non-Eurocentric steampunk novel, I was finally in the mood for something that stylistically reminded me the brilliant Michael Moorcock's 'Dancers At the End of Time'.That is a VERY good thing.I love books that dump me into an unfamil [...]


    7. This was one of those amazingly descriptive books where you don't even feel like you are reading anymore. The world building was so well done. It's really hard to find a quality steam-punk themed story in general and in this genre specifically, but this one was perfect. So many sci-fi/steam-punk/fantasy books over do it with the world building so you get taken out of the story as you try and keep up with all the terminology, geography and characters. Or they are made so campy that you can't take [...]


    8. I was completely surprised by how much I enjoyed this book (I haven't read too much steampunk). The imagination that went into this story and how beautifully Snow was able to translate that into words was amazing. I loved the world building and must admit there are a few new words to add to my vocabulary, these words only added to the tangibility of the world.I am a sucker for vulnerable heroes and Perfidor had all the characteristics that I enjoy. He is such a full bodied character that adds to [...]


    9. This story reels in the fantasy/steam-punk world; between residents of Taintwell (with their Branded Mongrels) and Purinton (with their pure humans). Fanule Perfidor is the Eminence of Taintwell, The Dog King, and he is investigating the case of dissapearing mongrels and the whispers of injustice punishment for mongrels that are being caught. To get to this, Fanule needs to get information about Alphonse Hunzinger, the owner of Hunzinger's Mechanical Circus. He isn't welcome there, none of the B [...]


    10. 2.5/5Mongrel started out really great, but sadly went downhill from there. I enjoyed parts of the book, mainly the lead character, Fanule Perfidor. That said, I think that K. Z. Snow didn't go as deep with Fanule as she could. The same can be said about the worldbuilding, the plot and the other characters. As it is now, Mongrel is enjoyable in parts, but ultimately disappointing. Yet it could've been this amazing steampunk-y fantasy oddball of a novel.


    11. 4.5 starsMongrel is a steam-punk fantasy about a world divided between the haves and the have nots Human (pures) vs. Mongrel (tainted)Puriton vs. Taintwellthe privileged vs. the shunned. A romance fantasy with a theme of social injustice and discrimination running through it.The story beginning is wonderfully done and Snow is in top form with her depiction of this world in full, rich Technicolor. She brings to life an oceanside boardwalk carny; a Mechanical Circus with its line of stalls manned [...]


    12. This was an interesting story with a unique, well-built world and truly fascinating characters. Fanule Perfidor is the leader of the mongrels, individuals who aren't full-bloodied human and are forced to have their human percentages tattooed on their necks. Fan is tall, has dark purple hair, two differently colored eyes, and suffers from bipolar disorder. He still suffers from some past trauma, but he's intense, dangerous, and just sex on legs. I loved him instantly. When Fan starts to suspect s [...]


    13. Well, this is quite different and had me racing to the end and probably a look of horror on my face at time. I fear for KZ's mind at times. She comes up with some creepy weird stuff. 'Tis good. :-) Fanule, Fan, is a mongrel, which is part human part something, and they live in the equivalent of a ghetto. He has been elected their de facto leader and he knows something hinky is going on. Mongrels are disappearing and he feels it's got something to do with the mechanical circus. He goes there and [...]


    14. 4.5 starsI forgot how fabulous this book is, how magnificent are the characters. The world building pulls you in, the characters charm you and you can't help but feel for them. Fan, the Eminence of Taintwell, the Dog King, the manic-depressive Mongrel, is larger than life, huge, dangerous looking, yet gentle and noble. Will, young salesman, was also lovely - naive, yet courageous, ready to learn and aid those who are wronged and those who he cares about. They couldn't have been more different an [...]


    15. I really wasn't sure about this when I started, and it's not without fault, but it is wonderful.Kind of mildly steampunk, the world building is excellent, you have humans, mongrels (part human- part something else) and vampires. So far.Unless mongrels are marked with the human/ other ratio they live in basically a ghettoough it sounds a lot nicer than that.Will, our human sells an elixir at a travelling fair, and meets Fan, the king of the mongrels.ey are attracted to each other ad also start to [...]


    16. I admit I put off reading this one because it was steam-punk. I've not really been able to read the genre because too often the language is to heavy or the descriptions over done. I loved this one. I followed along fairly well. The descriptions of Fanule's illness in terms of the world of steam-punk were well done. Who wouldn't love Fanule with his selfless behavior that he hides so well. Will is the perfect foil for the man. Will's ignorance at the beginning really shows how some people just ne [...]


    17. A highly creative m/m romance set in a steampunk world! Special kudos to the author for such wonderful word choices that helped to define a rather dark and misty setting. "Echoes of their movement clotted the street. Firelight from garbage burning in steel drums chewed holes in the darkness." Just an example, there are hundreds more like it. I enjoyed every minute of reading about Fanuel Perfidor, the Dog King and his lover William. Great match, great romance. An interesting supporting cast incl [...]


    18. 2.5 rounded up because of the characters.A good example of what happens when you bite more than you know you can chew. I've gotten a couple of steampunk books under my belt to test the waters and really enjoyed them. Mongrel gave my brain a painful challenge and a reminder not to always dive in head first. Loved the characters and liked the story well enough, navigating this world and keeping track of names was a bit more than I could handle.


    19. I'll start by saying that this is one of my least favorite genres so 3 stars is actually a great rating. It means I managed to finish and was entertained. This was a dark, historical steampunk about Fan, a half-breed or mongrel, and Will, a potion seller at the mechanical circus. It was both a love story and a mystery, probably evenly divided between the two. Decent smexing, nothing crazy. I may actually have to read the next one to find out what happens with Clancy and Simon. *gasp*

    21. As a big fan of K.Z. Snow’s writing I was looking forward to this new release. I like fantasy and steampunk so I was interested to see whether this story would work for me. It did, but be warned the grizzly contents may not be to everyone’s taste.The story itself revolves around a steam operated mechanical circus and the plans the odious owner has for a new exhibit. This is linked to the disappearance of many Mongrels (who are part human, part something else and therefore outcasts) who have [...]


    22. This is a hot man on man steampunk romance of the science fiction mixed with fantasy type, set in a captivating world and driven by strange but likeable heroes and secondary characters. The plot is simple and well executed. The mystery does not distract from the romance, and the romance is supported by an interesting mystery. The chemistry between the heroes is good, the sex is hot and their love story is very romantic, beautiful. All through the book, I would wish it was a Tim Burton movie and [...]


    23. It was a nice story! It left me with a smile on my face after reading the last lines with Will catching the ribbons from the air! I think that sweet ending gave it a 3 star rating.Don't know why, but I couldn't really connect with the characters. The plot was interesting enough, making it a good read but although I liked Fan and Will, I was not emotionally invested in how their story developed. And, like other members commented, there were a number of original elements introduced in the story th [...]


    24. Although I had a general idea as to what Steampunk is, this was the first book in that genre I've read. I must say, I was positively surprised. This book blended steampunk with fantasy, paranormal and mystery in a most pleasing way. Add to the mix a wonderful, sweet and loving romance between two very different men and a most colorful secondary cast, and I was hooked. I could only marvel at this author's imagination. Lizzy the disembodied witch (and don't forget the cat!), Marrowbone the fastidi [...]


    25. Wow. This book has it all – memorable characters, a richly textured atmosphere, a gruesome mystery, sexy romance and wicked humor – all wrapped in an urban fantasy/steampunk ribbon.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.



    26. 4.1 StarsOkay, this was a whole lot better than I was expecting. As I've mentioned before, Steampunk is a very dicey genre for merow in a paranormal element and it's even more questionable whether I will like it. (I prefer the science-y based Steampunk.) But give it some really interesting, dark and complicated characters? Yeah, that can transcend (?) (surpass? out-pace? IDK) just about any qualms I might have. (Never thought how how it would be to find a word that replaces the one I needed - th [...]


    27. 3.5 stars – An interesting and enjoyable m/m steampunk fantasy romance. Fanule Perfidor is the community-appointed leader of a village ghetto of “mongrels,” mutated beings that are forced to be branded, and whose rights are limited by the overseeing city-state. Suspicious of a greater conspiracy against the mongrel community, Fan begins investigating the local “mechanical circus” and attempts to glean information from Will, a young medicine seller working there. Their meeting (and unde [...]


    28. This was a lot of fun. A mix of fantasy, paranormal, historical, steampunk. It defies genres by blending so many of them seamlessly. While the story took a little while to get into as figuring out all the different terminology and structure of the world was a complicated, nonetheless it was pure enjoyment. I really enjoyed the relationship developing between William and Fan in spite of the insta-lovey nature of it. They were a good balance. I particularly liked that Fan wasn't perfect. His mongr [...]


    29. What a marvelous book! K.Z. Snow drops you into the weirdly wonderful world of Steampunk, in Mongrel. Because I'm not familiar with the Steampunk genre, I found it a bit difficult at the beginning to fully immerse myself in that world. Some of the contraptions mentioned in the book lacked detailed descriptions, which I found difficult at first. What exactly is an aeropod or a voxbox? But that lack of description eventually allowed my inner-child's imagination to kicked in and create the images f [...]
