Today I’m sharing the blurb for my forthcoming steampunk adventure – The Red Hourglass, which is due any day now and I’m most keen to see how it goes once the novel’s out there 🙂
Escape isn’t the hardest challenge for a slave – it’s staying free afterwards.
Siblings Thomas and Mia find themselves fleeing across a desolate land, hounded by the monstrous sand-hog, a steam-powered war machine bent on recapturing them at all costs.
Thomas fears the worst. He knows the tyrannical King Williams seeks Mia and her mysterious powers of foresight, but it seems even her gift cannot save the day when the sand-hog corners them. It isn’t until they cross paths with a group of rebels and stumble across rumours of a lost airship that Thomas begins to wonder if there isn’t hope of escape after all…
A steampunk adventure set in a slowly dying land where magic clashes with steam and alchemy.
If you’re on Goodreads you can add the book to your shelves right here and if you’re new to Thomas and Mia’s story altogether, the original short story is available in the second Steampunk Fairy Tales collection which is 99c at Amazon OR you can grab a PDF of the first 6 chapters of The Red Hourglass via this post on the blog from just the other day.
Back soon with a cover reveal!
