The Iron Wyrm Affair

Book 1, Bannon & Clare

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Emma Bannon, forensic sorceress in the service of the Empire, has a mission: to protect Archibald Clare, a failed, unregistered mentath. His skills of deduction are legendary, and her own sorcery is not inconsiderable. It doesn't help much that they barely tolerate each other, or that Bannon's Shield, Mikal, might just be a traitor himself. Or that the conspiracy killing registered mentaths and sorcerers alike will just as likely kill them as seduce them into treachery toward their Queen.

In an alternate London where illogical magic has turned the Industrial Revolution on its head, Bannon and Clare now face hostility, treason, cannon fire, black sorcery, and the problem of reliably finding hansom cabs.

The game is afoot..

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 04, 2012 – Multigenre talent Saintcrow (Angel Town) launches a delicious steampunk alternate London that pays more than a little stylistic homage to Sherlock Holmes, adding additional excitement in the form of magical duels, backstreet chases, battles with giant mecha, and confrontations with ancient wyrms and gryphons. Emma Bannon, a sorceress working for the spirit of Britannia and her current physical vessel, Queen Victrix, is given two tasks: collect and protect Dr. Archibald Clare, an unregistered but skilled mentath (logic genius), and find out who s behind the recent deaths of several mentaths and sorcerers. Bannon slowly begins to trust Clare, and as he uses his significant mental powers to work through the nonmagical pieces of the investigation, they become a strong team based on mutual respect. The absence of romance means a tighter focus on both action and deduction, and keeps the story appropriate for Saintcrow s younger fans. Sensual writing, intricate plotting, and sympathetically quirky, satisfyingly competent characters make this series one to watch.

Customer Reviews

Iron Wyrm Affair

This was not an easy read and the story didn't flow as well as other books by this author.

Iron wyrm affair

At first the story lines is difficult to follow as so many things happen all the time. It is difficult to deduce each persons being either sorceress or mentath and what each are capable op.

Many mysteries arise, the scene set is brilliant and the characters of Bannon and Clare are strong, complicated and lovable in their own mysterious ways and I have come to enjoy them immensely, even the Italian, German and whatever Mikal is.

As soon as you get the rhythm you would love it. I can't wait for the next one and I will be re-reading it again very soon.
