Well, we don't see Saul a lot in this book, but when we see him I don't remember Jill being particularly insensitive to him. Of course, it's been almost a couple months since I read it and my memory sucks, still... :)
Is it non-stop action? Hmm, yes. Does Jill stop and think about what to do next? Not really. But I'd give this a try, especially since the next book will be the last one about Jill. At least for a while, and if I'm not mistaken. ;D

Lili posted on her blog about the new Steampunk series she's started to work on now that the Jill Kismet one is over.

Quote
Emma Bannon, Prime sorceress in the service of Britannia, has a mission: to protect Archibald Clare, a failed, unregistered mentath. His skills of deduction are legendary, and her own sorcery is not inconsiderable. It doesn’t much help that they dislike each other, or that Bannon’s Shield, Mikal, might just be a traitor himself. Or that the conspiracy killing registered mentaths and sorcerers alike will just as likely kill them as seduce them into treachery toward their Queen. In an alternate Londonium where illogical magic has turned the Industrial Revolution on its head, Bannon and Clare now face hostility, treason, cannon fire, black sorcery, and the problem of reliably finding hansom cabs. The game is afoot…

I am so ridiculously excited about this. Clockwork horses. Charm and charter. Gryphons. Cannon fire. Logic engines. GIGANTIC CLOCKWORK MECHA RUN BY LOGIC. *does squealing Kermit arm-wavey dance* This is why I’ve been diving up to my eyeballs into Victoriana. I am having a ball with creating Bannon & Clare’s world, and I can’t wait to invite you, dear Reader, into it.

It sounds definitely interesting. I wouldn't mind it if it were a little less dark than usual too. :P

Ditto. Something a *little* lighter would be most welcome.

Has anyone read The Iron Wyrm Affair yet? I'm vacillating on buying it.

I love the positive way this review is presented, and it does make me interested in reading this series.
Sanity on loan. Call back next year.

Made me want to pick them back up again too, I have the first one in print and got the omnibus for $1.99 at some point but have not read it.
As I remember I enjoyed the first one immensely but then it took to long for the next one to come out and as there isn't really a a shortage of good books coming out I sort of forgot about payhing attention to when the next one was due.

I also like her steampunk mysteries.
