AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In a Victorian London ruled by the blood-drinking elite, Perry Lowell is a logical and accomplished Nighthawk: a rogue blue blood who tracks murderers and thieves for the Guild. So when she and her charming-but-reckless partner, Garrett, are charged with finding a missing theatre starlet, it should be a simple solve.

'But with an entire theatre of suspects, including a flirtatious understudy and whispers of a Clockwork Menace haunting the place, tension is brewing between the pair of them. Can they come together to solve the case – or will it be too late, when the murderer turns his gaze on Perry herself?'

  • Set three years before Forged by Desire.
  • Steampunk Note: This story features many of the classic Victorian London settings of steampunk fiction, and the combination of anachronistic technology and fantastical elements further serve to place it within the style. Also notable is the representation of Victorian social life, particularly romance. Finally, the title of the series indicates it is a work written self-consciously within this textual field.
