Benjamin Pepperwhistle has one overriding desire: to handle the glorious machinery that is a gun. So when he decides to run away to join the circus, it's only natural that he should seek out the legendary pistoleer, Cole Beauchamp, and beg to be his assistant. Life in the circus has definite ups and downs, but as Benjamin settles in to his role, he finds that some perks are even better than he'd anticipated.
I love the way that this story is written. It has the feel of a a glorious steampunk novel. Cornelia Grey is also adept at painting a marvelous picture with her words. I could see the billowing circus tents and smell the gun powder. Benjamin is an interesting character who is out to explore who he is and what makes him tick. He is on a life journey of sorts. He finds that he loves the excitement of the circus and even being shot at while lashed to a target. He has to feel out if his attraction to Cole Beauchamp is real or a childish crush. I really enjoyed reading this story and even though I was leery of the gun kink in the story, I did not find it off putting in the end. I think that it is really a to each their own kind of thing. I will say that there is mild adult content at the end of this story for those that avoid that type of thing.
