Description
" Introducing the Mysteries of New Venice steampunk trilogy with a first volume that entrances and delights (NPR) 908- New Venice the pearl of the Arctic a place of ice palaces and pneumatic tubes, of beautifully ornate carriage-sleds and elegant Victorian garb, of long nights and vistas of ice. ut local poletics are wracked by tensions with the Eskimos circling the city, with suffragette riots led by an underground music star, with drug round-ups by the secret police force known as the Gentlemen of the Night. An ominous black airship hovers over the city, and the Gentlemen are hunting for the author of a radical pamphlet calling for revolt. Their lead suspect is Brentford Orsini, one of the city's most prominent figures. But as the net around him tightens, Orsini receives a mysterious message from a long-lost love that compels him to act. What transpires is a literary adventure unlike anything you've ever read before. Brilliant in its conception, masterful in its prose, thrilling in its plot twists, and laced with humor, suspense, and intelligence, it marks the beginning of a great new series of books."
