The Iron Wyrm Affair

By Lilith Saintcrow Read by Moira Quirk (Audiobook, 2012)
Emma Bannon, forensic sorceress in the service of the Empire, has a mission: to protect Archibald Clare, a failed, unregistered mentath. His skills of deduction are legendary, and her own sorcery is not inconsiderable. It doesn't help much that they barely tolerate each other, or that Bannon's Shield, Mikal, might just be a traitor himself. Or that the conspiracy killing registered mentaths and sorcerers alike will just as likely kill them as seduce them into treachery toward their Queen.

In an alternate London where illogical magic has turned the Industrial Revolution on its head, Bannon and Clare now face hostility, treason, cannon fire, black sorcery, and the problem of reliably finding hansom cabs.

The game is afoot..

  • Praise for Lilith Saintcrow:

    " Saintcrow scores a hit with this terrific Steampunk series that rockets through a Britain-that-wasn't with magic and industrial mayhem with a firm nod to Holmes.  Genius and a rocking good time." - Patricia Briggs

    "Saintcrow...never fails to deliver excitement." --- Romantic Times

    "Lyrical language and movie-worthy fight scenes are staples in Saintcrow's novels, and this one is no exception." --- midwestbookreview.com

    "Lilith Saintcrow's foray into steampunk plunges the reader into a
    Victorian England rife with magic and menace, where clockwork horses
    pace the cobbled streets, dragons rule the ironworks, and it will take a
    sorceress' discipline and a logician's powers of deduction to unravel a
    bloody conspiracy."  -- Jacqueline Carey

  • "Saintcrow melds a complex magic system with a subtle but effective steampunk society, adds fully-fleshed and complicated characters, and delivers a clever and highly engaging mystery that kept me turning pages, fascinated to the very end." -- Laura Anne Gilman

  • "Innovative world building, powerful steam punk, master storyteller at her best.  Don't miss this one....She's fabulous. "

  • "Lilith Saintcrow spins a world of deadly magic, grand adventure, and fast-paced intrigue through the clattering streets of a maze-like mechanized Londonium. The Iron Wyrm Affair is a fantastic mix of action, steam, and mystery dredged in dark magic with a hint of romance.  Loved it!  Do not miss this wonderful addition to the steampunk genre."
