The artistic cover is what first drew me to this novelette, a prequel to the Neumarian Chronicles. It begins with a Neumarian being held captive and tortured as part of an information gathering mission. A wicked queen requires her servants to inflict gruesome and painful torture upon the main character and her brother.

The hellish scenes, complete with screws groaning and squealing in protest, along with cyborg body parts being appended to the main character are a taste of what’s to come in the upcoming book, Escapement. Ms. Knight’s vividly descriptive, striking scenes leave one with a sense of disquiet and fear.

Although the issues the characters face aren’t entirely clear in this prequel, the tragedy entwined with the memory of the Great War and its legacy is something not easily dismissed or forgotten by the reader.

For fans of cyborg fiction and steampunk, this is a new series to keep an eye on. Escapement will be released early 2013. Until then, we’ll have to be content with the appetizer, Weighted.
