Synopsis: When a master thief escapes from prison, detective Bettina Rothschild must put him back behind bars before he destroys the Ministry of Justice. Her investigation leads from decaying cemeteries where ravens conspire to warehouses where wondrous machines are built in secret, and even to the fabled Drifting Isle above the city of Eisenstadt where an ancient tomb hides a deadly secret.
While Bettina picks locks and interrogates suspects with her many ingenious inventions, her dashing husband defends her from the most brutal and bizarre assassins in Eisenstadt. But can they find the thief before he brings the Iron City to its knees?
"Dashing across the station to tackle the fleeing criminal to the ground, and batter him with my fists? No, I did that last time. It's my husband's turn," Bettina said.
"...He's also a talented artist, speaks four languages fluently, has a photographic memory, and performs like a raging stallion in the bedroom. I can't imagine that a snide cretin in a cheap blue suit with the body of a prepubescent orangutan could really entice me to leave him," she said.
"Oh yes, yes." Bettina nodded. "We chatted up the locals, strolled through the countryside, and shot at people. It was a lovely evening."
The Drifting Isle Chronicles
This unique fantasy series was created by an international team of writers who collaborated to create a new shared world full of original and diverse people, places, creatures, and ideas. Perhaps for the first time in history, a team of writers has written and published an entire series of novels all at once!
Each author wrote their own book in this new world, telling very different stories about very different people living in one fantastical city during the greatest discovery of the modern age. The writers worked closely to weave their characters and plots carefully together, in order to bring you this unique tapestry of steampunk action and fantasy adventure.
The first three books, which you can read in any order, are:
Black Mercury . . . Charlotte E. English
The Kaiser Affair . . . Joseph Robert Lewis
The Machine God . . . MeiLin Miranda
