This Strange Engine
by Philip Ligon
Once a fine, upstanding member of society, Alexander Asherton has reached the low point of his life. Once he had prospects. A place in society. Once he had a beautiful wife. But that was before Aimee left him, before the explosion…and before magic. His promising future with the Church of England went up in flames with the explosion that wrecked his body.
Now he works for the cruel and mysterious Misters, who keep him awash in the magic he needs to feed his addiction. The magic he needs to live. His only comfort is that he doesn’t do wet work.
He’s only a thief, not a murderer.
Who is Ash really? A priest or a killer? An addict, or a hero?
And what is the strange and deadly merging of science and magic that serves the Duke?
Is Ash truly lost to addiction and darkness, or if he can become something more? Find out by reading This Strange Engine today.
