Coming July 28
Set in an alternate near future, Steel Justice is the sixth book in the Steel Empires series and the first time that part of the story is told from the perspective of warrior-mage Kane Nalamas. The world of Steel Empires is one where elves, vampires and shapeshifters co-exist openly with humans and where magic is just another natural force in the world like physics. This installment features magical tattoos, code breaking and robot dogs!
NOTE: All preorders from the publisher will arrive signed by the author (me!)
Warrior-mage partners Toria Connor and Kane Nalamas have reached the pinnacle of their mercenary career, known far and wide and offered their pick of jobs. Mixing business with friendship, they accept a long-term contract across the ocean in Londinium, even though it means a six-month separation from their loved ones in Limani. Lady Zhinu Wallace has no actual need for bodyguards, with her ability to change form into a dragon, but she wants the status and support of her long-time friends as she makes her official debut into British noble society.
What should be a simple job, escorting the client to teas, business meetings, and galas, grows complicated when Zhinu is accused of murder. Her arrest thrusts Kane and Toria into the mystery of a dead scientist, a pickpocket with intriguing tattoos, and a magically encoded notebook.
Toria and Kane split up to untangle all the threads that lead to a lab filled with impossible technology. But to save lives, the partners must work closer together than ever before — merging not only their magic, but their very souls.
