“Captain Xoey’s brilliant adventure reminds me of the imaginative exuberance in Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere, only utterly, fantastically, wildly Steampunked!”

Becket | Author of the Steampunk Sorcery Series

“Xoey’s world may be mechanical but her adventures are pure fast-paced magic. Laura Dasnoit has created an exciting story that will no doubt leave readers wanting more.”

Greg Wilkey | Author of the Life and Undeath of Mortimer Drake Series
