Evangeline and the Bunyip (2016) by Madeleine D’Este is another entertaining romp in Steampunk Melbourne. Evangeline is now more settled in Melbourne after arriving to live with her inventor father. In this book she starts going to balls, continues eating cake, inventing things and battling foes with her friend Mei. Evangeline is starting to appear on the social scene in Melbourne and starts to attract gentlemen callers. In this story there seems to be more laying down of other characters which will be used in later adventures.
The actual battle with the Bunyip isn’t quite as entertaining as Evangeline’s fight with the Alchemist but it’s still well done and is pretty engrossing. It will be fun to read the episodes as they come out.
