What the community says about Pantomime (Micah Grey)
- "This was a fantastically interesting read. Even for a straight male, it had plenty of content to grip the entire way through. The story pacing is really well done and immediately you being to connect deeply to the woes of the main character. The world is built intricately and comes to life in a very unique way."
- "Pantomime is a beautifully written story about Micah, an acrobat apprentice in the circus, who is trying to find his way in the world but seems to be carrying a secret that is forcing him to hide his true emotions. From the mysterious ancient artifacts that sometimes seem to contain an elusive magical quality to the modern-day problems of society trying to force conformity upon the people, it contains the tried and true aspects of civilization. War, peace, love, magic, darkness, betrayal, confusion, hope and that everlasting question we all search for: who are we really and how do we know who we can trust with that truth. With everyone in the circus carrying around a secret, it is a story that touched me deeply with its combination of steampunk, Sci Fi and Fantasy genres. Who is really who and what those secrets reveal is something that I was not expecting, but was rewarding and refreshing in the end. "
- "Pantomime: Micah Grey, Book 1 is a novel by Laura Lam. It is the first book of the Micah Grey trilogy and part of the Strange Chemistry series. It contains fantasy-steampunk themes with slight elements of magic, which may grow into a main theme in the next book.""The circus and carnival life really fascinates me, especially in fiction. I like that this fantasy novel represents that to some degree and I highly recommend reading it."
- "I have some sort of issue where I must read the oddest things I can find. You wouldn't believe the kinda stuff I've had over the years.... This is far far more tame than my normal material but still weird nonetheless. The surprising thing about this was the skill of the writer for sure. I don't want to spoil anything but it's masterfully done. It's absolutely what I would call "the best"."
