A fantastical nineteenth century alternate historical steampunk romp from Beth Bernobich, the critically acclaimed author of the River of Souls trilogy.
?ire is one of the most powerful empires in the world. The Anglian Dependencies are a dusty backwater filled with resentful colonial subjects, Europe is a disjointed mess, and many look to ?ire for stability and peace. In a series of braided stories, Beth Bernobich has created a tale about the brilliant ?ireann scientists who have already bent the laws of nature for Man's benefit. And who now are striving to conquer the nature of time.
The Golden Octopus: ?ine Lasair?ona Devereaux, the young Queen of ?ire, balances Court politics while pursing the Crown's goals of furthering scientific discovery. When those discoveries lead to the death and madness of those she loves, ?ine must choose between her heart and her duty to her kingdom.
A Flight of Numbers Fantastique Strange: S?om?n Mad?c is desperately trying to discover who is killing the brightest of ?ire's mathematicians. The key to saving lives lies in the future...and S?om?n must figure out a way to get there.
Ars Memoriae: ?ireann spymaster Aidrean ? De?ghaidh goes to the kingdom of Montenegro to investigate rumors of great unrest. But ? De?ghaidh is tormented by visions of a different timeline and suspects that someone in his own government is playing a double game...
The Time Roads: ?ire stands on the brink of the modern age, but old troubles still plague the kingdom. An encounter with a mysterious stranger near death holds the clue to both the past and the future of the nation.
