The Steamship Chronicles continues with Nathaniel Bowden and Samantha Crill crossing the storm-tossed Atlantic while Sam fights to keep her talents in check.

Is Luck a Miracle or a Curse?

Luck alone has kept Sam undiscovered so far. She dreads the moment the crew learns their miracle and curse have a human face, but it’s Nat’s reaction she fears the most. When her Natural talents are revealed, all the ways she’s used her far-from-human abilities to keep the engine running may count for nothing.

Obsessed with the steamship's engine, Nat’s new position as the engineer’s apprentice is a dream come true even when a fierce storm tests the limits of his new skills. He basks in the praise of the engineer and crew once they're safe again, but their cheers soon turn to curses when Nat realizes the nearest island on the charts is nothing but a sandbar. With food and water running low, how is he going to keep Sam fed?

A Steampunk Alternate History set in the Victorian Era with sentient machines only a select few can hear, and for that they're considered monsters.

To protect his family, Henry will change the law itself.

The Natural laws declare anyone with the knack to transform machinery an inhuman criminal regardless of their actions. Henry has railed against this Act of Parliament in private, but finally he has the chance to fight back.

Lily’s health has suffered under the constant strain of sheltering a fugitive Natural, and an untimely word would have condemned every person on the estate. Henry had hoped sending his wife’s sister to safety on the Continent would bring relief from the threat that has been hanging over the manor and ease his wife’s suffering. Instead, disaster struck. Sam is missing with no word beyond vague rumors, and Lily grows ever worse.

If Henry can overturn the law that brands all Naturals as monsters and condemns those who help them, he’ll be able to search for Sam openly. He will bring her home and make their family whole again, drawing Lily out of her decline.

He has only to sway his peers in Parliament, a daunting task when his moral appeal fails. Nor does fate keep its hands out of the striving, choosing to send more complications the way of Lily and the manor in his absence.

His wife is dying and her sister is lost. Who better than Henry to take on all of England in their cause?


This is the fourth book in The Steamship Chronicles.

Suggestion: While the first and second volumes of The Steamship Chronicles can be read in either order, reading Book 1, Secrets, which is free in eBook, will allow you to see firsthand what drives both Henry and Lily.

Pick up your copy of Life and Law, and join Henry as he attempts to right a great wrong and win freedom for all Naturals in England.

Breyden is at a major crossroads in his life - return to the life he had known and be a part of the corrupt, evil People’s Government or become a high-priority target of that establishment as an outlaw, hunted by it and his own father.

With the aid of some new friends, Breyden sets out to build his own army to fight the system. His efforts to gain the necessary people and equipment to start his revolution puts him at odds with an underground government also set on maintaining their control of people who run from the dominant authority.

The deeper he digs, the more Breyden discovers just how far the People’s Government’s reach extends and to what lengths they and his father will go to take him down. His efforts to strike out at his enemies and bring freedom to earth and the universe will leave thousands of lives at risk.
