    • Thea became more ambitious, she swooped and soared, turned and twisted, her breath vapor-trailing behind her to mingle with her faint blue lifeline. She laughed aloud at the unexpected joy of flight. She shouted with excitement. She imagined herself an angel, an avenging angel swooping to the rescue of her beleaguered city. The stars wheeled about her almost as if she controlled their arc through the heavens. This must be what it felt like to be an angel in the stars.So, I'm picturing a prettier [...]


    • Perhaps one of the trickiest things about writing good steampunk is inventing and describing in credible detail mechanical items that do not exist. Michael Wombat does an excellent job of creating inventions that are simultaneously easy to visualize and plausible for the reader. His heroine Thea, aka Moth Girl, is a spunky, no nonsense gal with a strong will and a quick mind. I look forward to reading more of her adventures.


    • I'm sorry, , but if you insist on asking the author what they think of their own work then they're going to give it 5 stars. (I'm such a pimp).


    • A splendid yarn that perfectly captures the tone and flavour of the sci-fi serials of the fifties, and serves it with a sassily modern heroine and a steam punk twist.



    • And with a title like that how could I not read it? the expectations were high, it was not what I expected but I was not in any way disappointed.I don't like to give anything away in a review but I thought the story was highly inventive. by that I mean there is a great imagination behind it, a sprinkling of good humor, an enigmatic bad guy, some sterampunk and some charming characters. (bad guy included- especially with the bad guy)while I was reading the story I really didn't know where it was [...]


    • I originally read 'Moth Girl' serialised on the author's blogd waited for each installment with bated breath! This is a short story that grabs you immediately. The author's writing is evocative and definitely brings out a comic book feel, think Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers. Powerful and fantastical description will pull you into Moth Girl's predicament, and you'll be wincing in pain as steampunk creatures and critters show up The characters are strong, well-written and tongue-in-cheek at times, [...]


    • Moth Girl versus The Bats Is a wonderful steampunk short full of vivid imagery and stunning descriptions. Michael fills this adventure with fantastic mechanical creations that bring the steampunk theme to life in your mind. The only thing that disappoints me is that it isn't longer and I really look forward to reading more about the feisty Moth Girl. (There'd better be more!) I thoroughly enjoyed reading this adventure and didn't want it to end.


    • I loved this little steampunk adventure with its mechanical bats and the wonderful heroine Thea, nicknamed 'Moth Girl'. The descriptions were wonderful I could almost hear the whirring of the wings and the cogs and wheels turning in the most unexpected place where Thea follows the bats to. Sorry don't want to give too much away you will just have to check it out for yourself
