Benjamin Hope (goodreadscombenjamhope) | 2 comments Hi all,

My debut novel, a Victorian gothic-steampunk crossover, The Procurement of Souls, came out officially on 1st July. I would love to exchange e-book copies (in any preferred format) for an honest review. You can contact me through goodreads via my author page or directly at benjaminhope (at) hotmail (dot) com. If you are interested, you can also read the first three chapters on my website too, www.benjamin-hope.com. Hope to hear from some gothic, steampunk and general fantasy/sci-fi lovers soon.

Benjamin

Benjamin Hope (goodreadscombenjamhope) | 2 comments I was remiss in not including the blurb for my novel! I hope this piques your interest:

Magnus Drinkwater is close. Close to harnessing enough power to fuel his modified pocket-watch and stop time. But the answer continues to lie out of reach and when his daughter discovers a young woman no longer in possession of her soul, it quickly becomes clear that his own frustrations are the least of his worries. Someone with altogether darker machinations is busy working to their own design.

Dr Weimer is manoeuvring in the shadows, harvesting the souls from small-time criminals and turning their empty bodies into his mind-dead minions. But he too needs more power. Greater soul potency to reach his vision. And he’ll do whatever it takes. No matter the cost.

As the body count rises and Magnus follows a bloody and violent path through decaying city slums and dockyards; city ministerial buildings; and St Villicus’ monastery with its subterranean catacombs, he unearths more questions than answers. What is the link to the violent death of his wife two years before? What secrets are his colleagues hiding? Is there anyone he can truly trust? He must forge alliances he never thought possible and ultimately decide: just how far is he willing to push his own principles of science to power his device and keep the city safe?

Two scientists. Two ambitions. One bloody adventure…
