The year is 1876. In the small Sierra Nevada settlement of Lost Pine, the town witch, Emily Edwards, is being run out of business by an influx of mail-order patent magics. Attempting to solve her problem with a love spell, Emily only makes things worse. But before she can undo the damage, an enchanted artifact falls into her possession - and suddenly Emily must flee for her life, pursued by evil warlocks who want the object for themselves.
"A bold, inventive, well-written first novel"
In a brilliant mix of magic, history, and romance, M. K. Hobson moves her feisty young Witch, Emily Edwards, from the Old West of 1876 to turn-of-century New York City, whose polished surfaces conceal as much danger as anything west of the Rockies. Like it or not, Emily has fallen in love with Dreadnought Stanton, a New York Warlock as irresistible as he is insufferable.
"The Goremance Continues!"
The Year is 1910. Eighteen-year-old Will Edwards has landed a prestigious apprenticeship at Detroit’s Tesla Industries, the most advanced scientific research center in the United States. It’s a plum prize for a young man who dreams of a career in the new science of Otherwhere Engineering.
"The Tedious is back..."
Newly wed (but not exactly married), Emily Edwards is eager to begin her new life with the man formerly known as "Dreadnought Stanton". They've left the perils of New York City far behind and are returning to California on a magical railcar that sees to their every need. But an unexpected stop in New Orleans - home to a mysterious coven of powerful witches known as "The Ladies" - threatens to derail their future happiness.
