The Spirit Siphon is out now!

SiphonCoverSmallIt’s been a rough year with a bunch of delays on the book, but at last I can happily say that the fourth Magebreakers novel is out! The Spirit Siphon is available now on Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, or various other Amazons of your choice. I hope everyone enjoys Tane and Kadka’s continued adventures!

Here’s the blurb:

When an airship crashes under mysterious circumstances, the Magebreakers find themselves embroiled in an investigation that takes them across the Audish Channel to foreign shores. In Belgrier, many blame Audish sabotage for the accident, and for the death of the influential nobleman on board—a dear friend of the Belgrian Kaiser. And if Tane and Kadka can’t prove otherwise, it could become a diplomatic catastrophe.

But the suspicion of a government that views all Audlanders as dangerous pro-magical radicals isn’t the Magebreakers’ greatest concern. Nor is the constant obstruction of the Belgrian Guardswoman assigned to supervise them. It’s the possibility that an outside hand is influencing events—an enemy they’ve encountered before.

Endo Stooke.

And if the would-be emperor gets his way, it’s going to mean war.

The Dragon Machine is available now

dragonmachinesmallI’m pretty behind on this, but The Dragon Machine is available now! Grab it in paperback or ebook formats on Amazon!

Here’s the blurb:

A missing girl leads the Magebreakers into a deadly race, with her life as the prize.

Thaless is still reeling from the actions of the assassin known as the Emperor’s Mask, and in the aftermath, believers in magical superiority have been greatly emboldened. When a goblin girl named Tinga Vreeg goes missing, it seems like a tragic consequence of the atmosphere of hostility and anger toward the non-magical. But when Tane and Kadka investigate, they find a much deeper mystery. Tinga isn’t the only one missing—and she might have been on the trail of something important herself.

Maybe something that can explain the impossible strength and speed of the killers trying to track her down. Or the silver fire burning in their eyes.

But one thing is certain: if Tane and Kadka don’t find her first, someone is going to make sure that Tinga never tells anyone what she knows.

The Emperor’s Mask is live!

cover 7

The second Magebreakers book, The Emperor’s Mask, is available now on Amazon! Grab it here!

Here’s a quick blurb if you’re on the fence:

A killer walks among the rich and powerful. Who can the Magebreakers trust?

Someone is killing the non-magical members of Senate houses–those who might one day be named Protector of the Realm. And that same someone is leaving behind messages for the Magebreakers beside symbols of the shadowy organization known as the Knights of the Emperor. Under suspicion from the constabulary, Tane and Kadka are drawn into the investigation to prove their innocence.

What they find is that Audish politics are as dangerous as any Porthaven back-alley. Suddenly, they’re surrounded by the most powerful figures in the Protectorate, every one with a different agenda. Telling allies from enemies has never been harder, but Tane and Kadka will have to find someone to trust if they’re going to bring the killer to justice.

Their lives–and the future of the Protectorate–depend on it.
