9780091949860: A Conspiracy of Alchemists: Chronicles of Light and Shadow (Chronicles of Light & Shadow 1)

In a Golden Age where spark reactors power the airways, and creatures of Light and Shadow walk openly among us, a deadly game of Alchemists and Warlocks has begun.

When an unusual cargo drags airship-pilot Elle Chance into the affairs of the mysterious Mr Marsh, she must confront her destiny and do everything in her power to stop the Alchemists from unleashing a magical apocalypse.

Combining the best elements of nineteenth century gothic fiction with contemporary Steampunk, adventure, romance and the supernatural, Liesel Schwarz has crafted a truly exceptional debut, the first book in The Chronicles of Light and Shadow trilogy.

Review:

"Inventive, lush and full of heart, The Chronicles of Light and Shadow are books to be devoured. Schwarz is a force to be reckoned with" ( George Mann)

"The soon-to-be high-priestess of British steampunk" ( The Independent)

"a distinctive read, made so much better by Schwarz’s undoubted skill as a writer and story teller, creating a world of richly layered environments ... I’m not really sure what else you could ask from a novel: believable characters, an engrossing plot, written by a capable author ... highly enjoyable" ( sci-fi-online)

"The world itself is beautifully realised, and mixes a few well-loved steampunk staples (you can’t escape airships, for example) with some unique ideas that really bring it to life ... genuine brilliance" ( GeekPlanetOnline.com)

Book Description:

A thrilling, genre-breaking alternate reality Steampunk adventure.
