Description
Introducing the "Mysteries of New Venice" steampunk trilogy with a first volume that "entrances and delights" (NPR)
In the defense of steampunk comes a literary adventure unlike anything you've read before. 1908, New Venice: An ominous black airship hovers in the sky, and the city is hunting for the author of a radical pamphlet calling for revolt. The lead suspect is Brentford Orsini, one of the city's most prominent figures. As the net around him tightens, Orsini receives a mysterious message from a long-lost love that compels him to act.
Brilliant in its conception, masterful in its prose, thrilling in its plot twists, and laced with humor, suspense, and intelligence, "Aurorarama" marks the beginning of a great new series of books.
