Hosted by Breaking the Spine, a way to share upcoming highly anticipated releases.
Emma Bannon, Prime sorceress in the service of the Empire, 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 London 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…
First of all, I like the cover. Second, I can't seem to get enough of historical paranormal books lately and this one includes magic. I've had such good luck finding spectacular books in this genre so far and I have high hopes for this one.
What's your WOW?
