A new iron curse threatens London
Now that the Sunken have been defeated, Isambard Kingdom Brunel can begin the task of making the British Empire great once more. All that stands in his way are the French forces closing in on the country, and rival engineer Robert Stephenson, who seeks to undermine Brunel’s power by disobeying his orders at every turn.
Nicholas Thorne once again finds himself caught in the middle of a war he does not believe in. Only now, Nicholas is assailed every waking hour by terrible voices – animals in excruciating pain pound against his skull, begging for release. Can Nicholas fight through the pain and retain control of his mind to protect the people he loves?
Not content to lay idle while his empire is attacked and civil war looms, Brunel has one last great innovation to unveil. This new machine could be the salvation of England, or the destruction of them all.
The Gauge War is the second book in my Engine Ward series, exploring the clash of science and religion in an alternatee history London where dinosaurs still survive. I am so excited that this book is finally live, as it represents more than two years of hard slog! It’s been pretty touch-and-go to get it done over the last month, and as it is I had to upload to book twice just so everyone got the updated ending that I changed at the last possible minute. (It was my husband’s fault. He said, the night before release, “this ending doesn’t work with this character”, and I realised he was right. Cue a day’s worth of work for me. Sigh. But I think it’s much better for this change).
To celebrate the launch, The Gauge War is on sale for $2.99 (usually $3,99) AND, if you haven’t read the first book in the series, you can grab The Sunken for just $0,99! You’d better hurry on that, though, because it’s only priced that low today.
And if you’re in Kindle Unlimited, you can read both books for free!
If you enjoy either of these books, I’d love for you to leave a review and let other people know what you think! Also, there IS a paperback version coming, it’s just going to take me a few days to get the files formatted and ready to go.
Thank you so much for your support. This is my eighth published novel, and I have been absolutely floored by the support of you awesome people who read my books and my blog and follow my little crazy adventures. I couldn’t do it without you!
