Eye of Ra cover new

It is a time of steam technology, scientific innovation and quietly simmering political tension. Having lost her husband to the dangerous life of an adventurer and the hazards of hot air balloon travel and murderous mercenaries, Astrid Darby has found herself alone in the world, aside from her motley assortment of eccentric associates, mad scientists, cheeky Ministry of Defence agents, and her keen, clever young cousin, Alexander Knightly. Now an esteemed and erudite adventurer herself, Astrid is, once again, embroiled in a grand conspiracy, the scale and nature of which she has only begun to imagine. When Dr Sebastian Cross, one of England’s most acclaimed physicists and inventors, is discovered missing along with the Eye of Ra, the doctor’s revolutionary new directed energy weapon, the executives of Rake & Gage, premier defence contractors, enlist Astrid to locate the doctor and recover his apparatus. Despite Messrs Cole’s and Thorne’s certainty that the doctor and his assistant, Dr Joseph Ramsey, have absconded with the weapon and defected to a rival contractor, Astrid suspects something far more sinister is afoot. Her search for the Eye leads her into a world fraught with colourful characters, improbable death rays, flying airships, awkward wagon rides, uncouth wranglers, murderous mercenaries, perilous train trips, underground tunnels, ludicrous disguises, condescending Ministry of Defence agents, treacherous executives, malicious terrorists, and the destruction of a beloved national landmark.

 

We look forward to seeing you there!

Now Available in Paperback! LITTLE AGNES AND THE GHOSTS OF KELPIE WHARF by Stella Drexler

http://www.amazon.com/Little-Agnes-Ghosts-Kelpie-Wharf/dp/1622010248Kelpie Wharf Print Cover

Dreary, foggy, fishy-smelling Port Enshus is host to the 305th Annual Aquatic Life Acquisition Simplification Exposition featuring the infamous inventor, Dr Nimrod Crowley. Expressly forbidden from concussing any gulpy townspeople, assisting any villainous scientists, blowing anything up–even just a shanty or two–or having any fun whatsoever, lovable, precocious and clinically insane young scientist Agnes Crowley is bored out of her skull. To alleviate her boredom, she visits the local pug where the fishy dregs regale her with tales of twisted ghosts and deadly monsters lurking about the mysterious Kelpie Wharf. Agnes is eager to investigate the dubious claims, but when she arrives at wharf, instead of kelpies, she and the fishy dregs discover two ships come to port, whose crews have vanished without a trace. Armed with naught but tremendous precociousness, an arsenal of death rays, stun guns, ear trumpets, and concussion cannons, Agnes and her ubiquitous companion, Vic, a re-animated clockwork cadaver, set out to discover what has become of the missing men. But to uncover the secrets of the disappearance and the enigmatic island that may hold the key to the mystery, they must first face an army of werewolves, bogeymen, revenants, bog monsters, Spring-Heeled Jacks and other legendary monsters of lore.

Rebel Grey Print Cover

After a great war that destroyed the nation, the government has fallen, and the cities are run by corrupt false monarchies. The Kings and Queens control the law, and the powerless, terrified citizens are being snatched from the streets in droves, accused of treason and imprisoned or worse. The children of the accused must band together just to survive. In Razor City, only the rebel Uprising is willing to stand up to King Scarlet, but their efforts are crushed at every turn by disloyal bounty hunters, bloodthirsty outlaws, Scarlet’s ruthless, vigilant nobles and his cruel son, Dante. Petra Strom has given up hope. Everyone in Razor City has given up hope. When Petra discovers Prince Dante beaten half to death in an alley without any memory of his identity or his past, she thinks she’s finally found a way to force Scarlet to release her brother, Ren, and the other falsely accused prisoners. Planning to ransom the prince in exchange for the prisoners, Petra lures Dante back to the children’s secret compound and convinces him he’s one of them, a lost child called Grey whose family was torn apart by the King. As her lies catch up to her and Grey begins to discover who he really is, the children are pursued by the King’s Marshals, bounty hunters and a deadly assassin whose connection to Scarlet might be the real reason the prince was attacked in that alley. Grey begins to uncover the truth about himself and his father, and he knows someone has to end Scarlet’s tyrannical reign once and for all. He might be the only one who can. As they join up with the Uprising, Grey and Petra realize their fight isn’t just about survival or freeing the prisoners anymore. It’s about taking back the city.

CIRQUE DU FLAIRE Pietro Augustus Flaire’s Dazzling Spectacle of Delectation! Stimulation! and Stupefaction! Amidst the Clouds and Among the Firmament! When she is accosted in the street by the bedazzled and flamboyant Eitenne Allard, a funambulist for the Cirque du Flaire, who claims his employer, Pietro Augustus Flaire, has bewitched his twin sister, Elodie, and has concocted a most nefarious scheme involving the apparent disappearance of a favoured spectator, Astrid Darby and her clever young wards, Xander Knightly and Juliana Coffin, are drawn into a surreal and shocking mystery upon the famous flying carnival. Amongst cavorting clowns, frolicking funambulists, exotic beasts, a gruesome freak show and a mysterious snake charmer with an uncanny instrument, Astrid, her wards and Agent Asher Key of the Ministry of Defence attempt to thwart the charismatic Flaire’s dastardly plot. They are soon to discover, however, that their considerable skills are little match for the ringmaster’s adroit and deadly tricks.
