    1. Heather K (dentist in my spare time) says:

      This is one strange little story.What do you get when you combine steampunk with deranged, global domination-minded aliens? You get this book. I had many WTF moments while reading this story but I just decided that this book would be a learning experience. I'm not much of a steampunk fan but this quickly moved from steampunk to kind of body-snatching sci-fi. It was odd but strangely pleasant. I DID manage to get into the world (as crazy as it was) in a pretty short amount of time. This book is n [...]

    2. Julio Genao says:

      i dunno, really suffered from a reliance on expository dialogue to advance the plot. mostly, i feel like it could have been longer, unfolding at a more naturally visual pace, and thus obviate the need for one character to explain to another character what has happened, what is happening, or what is about to happene arc's too short. by the time my feet are settled in the world, the conclusion's come and gone, and the bits i really cared about have only been teased reads like the first segment of [...]

    3. Macky says:

      This is a strange one to rate and review as I both enjoyed it but also at times found myself a bit overloaded by what was going on in the story. This is a pretty short novella but it packs a hell of a lot in! I found myself fascinated though by the character of Agamemnon Frost who presents himself as a fop and a dandy but underlying is far from either! And there's no doubt that even though there's very little on page sexual encounters, the relationship he has with poor Morgan ( whose life islite [...]

    4. Jennifer Lavoie says:

      YES. That pretty much sums up this book for me. I can't give a better review than just that one word, but for those that do not know me, I will explain. I love the following categories: m/m historical fiction, steampunk, Sherlock Holmes, science fiction with alien life, and mystery. Throw all those things together and you have one explosive book that defies categorization and makes for sheer awesome. THAT IS THIS BOOK. I didn't put it down. I sat and read it in one sitting, and even when I had t [...]

    5. MLE says:

      I received this book as an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.An interesting story with a refreshingly different premise. I like the mixture of the Victorian style setting and the aliens. It made for fun reading. The plot is well done, but a bit rough in spots. The characters are interesting, and I liked the hints of what Edgar and Agamemnon are going to come to mean to each other. I loved that Agamemnon was much more than he first appeared to be, and it was nice seeing Edgar [...]

    6. Valen says:

      I loved it!While I wanted more, the promise of the sequels made up for any and all disappointments concerning the books length and lack of romantic storyline. Don't get me wrong, there was LOTS of romance, with LOTS of shockingly great character and world development, but the book was too short for me. I like to commit to long-ish novels, so novellas really aren't my thing, but Knox is so talented that the book's length was not a problem at the end of the day.Mason and Frost are cute and endeari [...]

    7. Heather C says:

      Okay, this was crazy!The cover is what first drew my interest to this story, but when I originally read the blurb for this, I was immediately turned off by the Victorian England-slash-alien invasion concept. Then, something kept pulling me back to it over and over, and when I finally realized it would be a trilogy, I decided to give it a try. It's Liverpool in 1891, and Edgar Mason, a former soldier, has been hired for the night to play manservant to Agamemnon Frost, a well-dressed gentleman *co [...]

    8. Ilhem says:

      “One night’s work. Just one”.It takes only one night’s work as Agamemnon Frost’s valet to topple Mason’s world over and tell this story. “One night”. This is a leitmotiv in his mind as he faces want, fear and death. Indeed, “Agamemnon and the House of Death” is a story of want starting suspiciously at first sight and taking roots with a shaving scene (what is it with shaving scenes?!) - golden eyes and smirking mouth, wet skin and offered throat, sandalwood and vanilla, need [...]

    9. ᴥ Irena ᴥ says:

      I am glad I haven’t read the whole book description before reading this.3.5Agamemnon Frost and the House of Death is one of the weirdest stories I’ve read. It all comes down to my expectations. All I knew is this is a steampunk (romance), nothing more. And I am glad. That description tells almost everything about it. It is written in the third person, but seen through the eyes of Edgar Mason, a decorated soldier. Mason is retired now and he works as a manservant. That’s how he ends up with [...]

    10. Secretly Reading says:

      This is a lovely introduction to what I hope is a long series. The world building is steampunk combined with medical experimentation and captivated me. The leads of Frost and Mason are well introduced here and set up a compelling relationship I hope to read more about. To be honest, the relationship development is secondary to the plot but I was okay with that as what I got was delicious. I absolutely look forward to the next installment of Frost and Mason's adventures and hope it finds them som [...]

    11. Erin (PT) says:

      I picked up this book because I'd read a review of the second book of this series that sounded interesting. Unfortunately, the first book was bad enough that I'm not sure I have the patience to see if the second book improves on the imperfections of the first. I had four basic problems with this book. First of all, there's just nothing really remarkable about it, nothing that really sets it apart from any other story. Everything that happens is both fairly cliché and predictable. Even the addit [...]

    12. Nila says:

      Steampunk, Victorian setting, alien beings, world domination, lots of copper and sexual tension so thick you can see the vapor. Welcome to my alien world of wonderful reading.Agamemnon Frost, foppish and worthless, has hired the worthy ex-soldier Edgar Mason to attend him as his valet for the evening. Mason needs the money and will work for anyone, but he hates men who have no deeper interest than their clothes. But, as he's ushered into Frost's room Frost begins a subtle seduction that has Maso [...]

    13. The Novel Approach Reviews says:

      Agamemnon Frost and the House of Death is a fun and fantastical adventure that I could easily give away far too much of. This installment in the series is a blend of dark danger, insidious enemies, a diabolical master, and imagination galore, the beginning of what I hope will be many more installments to come. Kim Knox has delivered a story that’s a little steampunk, a little sci-fi, a lot of action and some out-of-this-world threats, and then has set the story in Victorian England to make it [...]

    14. Samantha says:

      Hum. Hovering between 3 and 3.5ish.If you're looking for something original and new, then this is for you. The plot was different than anything I've ever read, in a setting that made it completely unique even if it had some "cliche" aspects (which, to my knowledge, it didn't.)The problem? I was horribly confused for most of it. I had no idea what was going on in some of the most important parts, and maybe I just lack the vivid imagination needed to give this book life in one's head but dang. I w [...]

      DNF @ 39%I usually love mashups that include m/m, steampunk, adventure, romance, etc, but I got almost halfway through this novella, and it just wasn't working for me.You may dig it though, and it's Carina, so very affordable.

      4 HeartsReview written for MM Good Book ReviewsEdgar Mason was forced out of the army when the British Empire replace its foot soldiers with monstrous machines. Now he is working any jobs that he can find as a personal servant to the elite of Liverpool. When he finds himself as the personal servant for Agamemnon Frost he thinks the man is a dandified fop who gets his blood racing, but he soon discovers that not everything is as it seems. Agamemnon Frost has an important task to complete, he hate [...]

    17. Sophia says:

      What do you get when you combine Steampunk, Sci-Fi and Suspense? A fun creative work that leaves you chomping at the bit for the next installment. I loved the feeling of being on one of those wild roller-coaster rides as I journeyed along with poor Edgar Mason as he tries to figure out what in the world is going on, deals with his sudden lust for his new master and then trust that the man isn't certifiable when he tells Mason that they are playing a deep game against Martians.Mason was once a so [...]

    18. Christy B says:

      Even with reading the summary, I still didn't know what I was getting into, here. Steampunk? Aliens? Victorians? Yes, to all of the above.Surprisingly, it all worked. I'm not much into aliens, but I liked this. The centerpiece of all this is the new relationship between Frost and Mason. Mason is thrown into all this when he becomes valet for a night for Frost, who seems to be a fop, but is more so.Mason didn't know what he walked into when he took this job, but it has changed his life forever. T [...]

    19. Ilona says:

      Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Author The author describes this book very well when she says "Sherlock Holmes meets The Scarlet Pimpernel with Aliens". It's an interesting mix of Historical, Science Fiction and a kind of m/m Romantic Steampunk story that somehow works VERY well. The Characters are wonderful and the storyline is both a little amusing and very intriguing. I really didn't want to put it down once I had started reading it. I think I am a little disappointed that Kim Knox only [...]

    20. Serith says:

      Hmm don't think this book and I are all that compatible.The language was a little too flowery to sound natural. It suited the historically influenced set, however I think this would have been more enjoyable of a read if it was a little lighter on style. That is just me though (could even just be the particular mood I'm in. May try again someday? Hard to say right now).Also the mix of genres was unique, but a touch too mismatched for me in the end. Just wasn't my thing.Beyond all that, the cover [...]

    21. DL says:

      I don't even know what to say. I spent a good portion of my reading time confused. I like steampunk. Not so much space aliens. And this book combined the two. Still, I liked Mason. Frost, I have no idea what I feel about him. There are two more books. Perhaps I'll find the answers then.

    22. Jennifer says:

      3.5 StarsOne of the things that I love about independent publishers is the risks they are willing to take with their books. A perfect example of this trend is the wonderfully titled, Agamemnon Frost and the House of Death. Our narrator is Mason, a former foot soldier, who is trying to live in world where his particular military skills are no longer needed. He is forced to look for temporary servant work while attempting to figure out his next step in life. It is one of these seemingly normal job [...]

    23. Becky Condit says:

      Comment on Josie's 5 sweet pea review at mrsconditreadsbooks/index. Agamemnon Frost and the House of Death by Kim Knox is a wonderful mix of Victorian steam punk and aliens from Mars. Don't knock it until you've tried it!Edgar Mason spent 10 years as a foot soldier for the British Empire. Now finding himself no longer required, his role on the battlefield replaced by machines, he finds employment where he can, working as a personal servant for The Registry. Mason is hired by Sir Randolph Cadwall [...]

    24. pbj says:

      I want to give Agamemmnon Frost and the House of Death more than just three stars because it tries to break away from the genre rut and boldly go where no MM romance has gone before but I can't.I love the idea of this book - steampunk, alien invasion, romantic gay thriller. Unfortunately, it just doesn't do any one of these things well enough to feel complete.The beginning of the book is wonderful. Mason, an ex-soldier made obsolete by new-fangled steampunk technology, finds temporary work throu [...]

    25. Online Eccentric Librarian says:

      Agamemnon Frost and the House of Death, first in a series of short novellas, was a very different kind of animal; in this case, a good kind. Aliens, ray guns, sci fi, mystery, spies, thriller, steampunk, and gay main protagonists - what's not to love? And while that many ingredients could make the plot rather overcooked, author Kim Knox somehow manages to pull it off. But be warned - it does stop just as things are starting to get going.The perspective is told from an ordinary Joe - a former sol [...]

    26. Annette Gisby says:

      I must admit that I have never read any Steampunk before, but if the rest are anything like this book, I think I've been missing out.Like a lot of army men, Edgar Mason has been forcibly retired from the army as more and more machines replace the men like him. Before joining the army he used to work as a manservant and he places himself on an agency register to get some gainful employment once more. He is requested for just one night to act as valet for Agamemnon Frost, who Mason thinks is nothi [...]

    27. Shirley says:

      3 1/2. really, really, really close to a 4.I receivedAgamemnon Frost and the House of Deathin exchange for a fair and honest review. This is a Steam-punk like I’ve never read before and I liked it. In Kim Knox’s world, Victorian England (and ultimately the world) is invaded by aliens. Their goal is not only to invade and take over, but they turn a select few into their own brand of foot soldiers. It’s a pretty scary concept and the action, danger and mystery keep the pages turning.In The H [...]

    28. Joyfully Jay says:

      A Joyfully Jay review. 4.5 starsFrom the beginning, this story starts off with intrigue and mystery. Aliens? In regency era England? Who would have thought? No matter what I thought about where the story was going, it was always headed somewhere else. This author definitely kept me on my toes.Agamemnon Frost and Edgar Mason are a team to go down in the history books—if they would have existed. And if there would have truly been aliens in Liverpool. The reasons for them finding their way togeth [...]

    29. Lisa Roquin says:

      Meh. Very meh.This tries to be m/m romance, other than Mason's attraction to Frost, the romance falls extremely short. Frost's side of the equation reads means-to-an-ends in the first half and duty-bound guilt in the latter with a side of Mason should be glad of Frost's protection. World building is extremely vague. Few unique words, but no connection to what most of those words actually are, vague implications of the usual steampunk-ish craft, with an extra "handwave because *aliens*" but nothi [...]

    30. Lara says:

      This is a m/m erotic steampunk novella. (view spoiler)[Well, there was no action, just a lot of panting and a few kisses. (hide spoiler)] It was interesting as it follows a war veteran in his latest valet placement that turns into supernatural thriller with a fight for his life and a surprising lust for the man he was hired to serve. It was easy to read, but a bit disappointing as I found the main character to lack spine and to be strangely uncertain of himself and have a need for someone to giv [...]
