The Triple Alliance, led by Kaiser Otto II, struck without warning. The combination of Prussian military might, Austrian clockwork, and Ottoman funding cut through the unprepared Entente powers like a chainsaw through Brie; hamstringing Britain, pinning Russia, and very nearly destroying France.

Steampunk with not one, but two main heroines who are black? Could it be possible? Was I dreaming when I saw the cover of this e-book?

The Strange Fate of Capricious Jones tosses the readers right in the thick of thee action, which wouldn't be a bad thing had this been a full-length novel and not a short story. I would have liked to have known a lot more about the title heroine, Capricious Fate Jones. Alas, that's not to be.

Or is it????

Must grab Volume II of the Iron Angel series.

The Strange Fate of Capricious Jones follows a day in the lives of two women: Capricious and Leigh. Both are engineers.

Both are faced with fast-paced, life-and-death decisions that will keep the book moving at an adrenaline inducing pace.
This novella is well-written and polished. The characters are strong and well-developed, despite the short length. The author has a deli
