Black Powder War by Naomi Novik (Book 2006)

I've definitely been busting through these books at a fairly speedy rate, for this 3rd one in the series is now cleared. It was more exciting than the 2nd book and was more in-line with the dialogue and speed of the 1st.

The story took the crew overland from China, through the Middle-East, and over to the Eastern front of the European War. There was a good amount of skirmishes, a few old characters were reintroduced, and of course the story was fantastic. The end of this book wasn't a cliffhanger by any means, but there were still many unanswered questions in the plot that would convince any reader to continue onto the next book.
