About “The Kraken: Part 1“
Where other authors give us the trappings of steampunk without real substance, Jonas Cobos infuses his world thoroughly with the substance and spirit of the genre, 110% full of steampunk ideas and motivations. And he did something few other writers have done…made steampunk goggles actually functional tools rather than mere fashion statements.

Although it is short, it sets up what could be a great series, filled with more of the same twists and characters.
