On sale: 4/18/2017
ISBN: 9780062363121
In the third book in Viola Carr’s
fantastically fun and wonderfully edgy Electric Empire novel, set in the gritty
world of alternate Victorian London, Dr. Eliza Jekyll must team up with her
secret other half, Miss Lizzie Hyde, as her world comes crashing to a halt when
a madman begins targeting the city’s most important scientists, and sorcerers
threaten all she holds dear.
About
the Book:
Crime scene physician Eliza
Jekyll is trying to share a life with her rebellious second self, Lizzie Hyde.
But being two people in one body isn’t easy, not when Eliza has a professional
reputation to protect and Lizzie is veering headfirst into a life of debauchery
and crime with an increasingly demented Mr. Hyde. Not to mention the difficulty
of making a respectable marriage with Remy Lafayette–Royal Society
investigator and occasional lycanthrope–while Lizzie enjoys her own dubious
romantic entanglements. And with England on the brink of war, Remy’s secretive
mission in sorcery-riddled Paris grows ever more sinister. Has he been an enemy
agent all along? Or is Eliza finally going mad?
Now, she’s confronted by her most
baffling case yet: an evil genius with a penchant for theatrics is murdering
eminent scientists in the most inexplicable ways. Her investigation uncovers a
murky world of forbidden books, secret laboratories and bleeding-edge science
punishable by death–and a shocking connection to her father’s infamous
experiments. Desperate to learn the truth about her past, she must infiltrate a
cabal of fanatical inventors bent on a discovery that will change the world–or
destroy it.
With London under attack by
sorcery-wielding terrorists, and the Royal Society’s enforcers determined to
bury her evidence for good, Eliza needs all the friends she can get if she’s to
thwart the killer and keep her head. But when Lizzie’s criminal shenanigans get
Eliza fired from the Metropolitan Police, and Remy is implicated in an act of
bloody vengeance he didn’t commit (or did he?), she’s on her own.
Except for wily, resourceful, mercurial
Lizzie. But Lizzie’s got her own life now. And she’ll do anything to keep it.
Even if it means attempting the unspeakable and finding her own body. Even if
it means throwing Eliza to the wolves, and letting the world burn…

About
the Author:
Viola Carr was born in Australia,
but wandered into darkest London one foggy October evening and never found her
way out. She now devours countless history books and dictates fantastical
novels by gaslight, accompanied by classical music and the snoring of her
slumbering cat. She likes steampunk, and thought it would be cool to
investigate wacky crimes with crazy gadgets…just so long as her heroine was the
creator of said wacky gadgets: a tinkerer, edgy, with a dash of mad scientist.

“Truly masterful storytelling” – Goodreads.com
More than a hundred years ago, a king declared that all geniuses,
scientists and inventors were abominations, save for those willing to
become his Conventioneers. His edict spread like wildfire through the
kingdoms, and drove the hunted into the arms of the secret societies,
the Tub and the Fare.
Decades later, having taken control of the remains of the crushed Fare, a
young Marcus Pieman follows up on rumors of a homeless, teenage
Abominator in his city. When the scared Nikolas Klaus looked up at
Marcus for the first time, a tremendous bond was forged.
A betrayal leads Tee to a showdown with her greatest foe. Who breaks
and who lays bleeding in the middle of nowhere?
And Mounira learns the truth about the once great inventor, Christophe
Creangle.

Adam Dreece kicked off his indie author career with his best-selling
steampunk meets fairy tale series, The Yellow Hoods, which struck a
chord with kids 9-15 and adults. After four books in the series, the
former software architect put out two more young adult books, the
post-apocalyptic fantasy book The Wizard Killer – Season One, and
then his science fiction novel, The Man of Cloud 9. The first two
novels in The Yellow Hoods series, as well as The Wizard Killer, have
been finalists for Book of the Year awards from the Independent
Author’s Network.
When he’s not working on his next book, Adam can be found giving talks
at schools, libraries, associations, as well as comic-con type events
like CalgaryExpo and FanExpoCanada on subjects from how to get one’s
ideas out and stepping outside of one’s comfort zone, to how to
give a successful book signing.
Along the way, Adam has faced many challenges, including working around his
Dyslexia (reading and writing disorder), and needing to be ruthless
with his time and energy in face of his severe asthma and chronic
abdominal scar pain. He’s become an inspiration to some, and a
symbol of tenacious hard work to others.
He lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with his wife and children. He is
an active online mentor at adamdreece.com, and is a busy public
speaker, panelist, and author in Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
