More than one group of people are after the Spear of Destiny - and some unlikely characters are teaming up to stop the release of darkness into the world.

This book is truly one of a kind, in my opinion. Containing the theme of a political background with a twist of steampunk, it will take the reader on a thrilling adventure with dynamic characters. With its twinges of humor, it allows the reader to be fully entertained. The background of the story is also prepared well since it includes not only

I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This was an amazing steampunk novel. I love books like this, ones that have people hunting for some powerful ancient artifact.

Part alternate history, part steampunk, part pulp adventure and part occult horror, this short book functions as a scene-setter for the remaining two books in the series. The world background is described (there is a nod to libertarianism that could have come straight out of a Heinlein novel), the cast of characters is introduced, and the quest is laid out.

To me, this book is very reminiscent of the old Saturday afternoon serials shown before the main feature, although with much better dialogue

Very surprised with this book. I wasn't expecting much to be honest but the mix of pulp and weird science was a real blast.
