Publisher Description

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.

Iron wyrm affair

At first the story lines is difficult to follow as so many things happen all the time. It is difficult to deduce each persons being either sorceress or mentath and what each are capable op.

Many mysteries arise, the scene set is brilliant and the characters of Bannon and Clare are strong, complicated and lovable in their own mysterious ways and I have come to enjoy them immensely, even the Italian, German and whatever Mikal is.

As soon as you get the rhythm you would love it. I can't wait for the next one and I will be re-reading it again very soon.

Iron Wyrm Affair

This was not an easy read and the story didn't flow as well as other books by this author.
