Seeds Among the Stars, Book 2

Trina is stunned when the teachers segregate her into a class of technologically challenged candidates. This decision makes her question the spacer test while her assigned teammates consider her a liability. She must fight the shafter instinct to retaliate or she will be cut from the program altogether. Deluth finds their colony-bred teammate fascinating, but his best friend since childhood is bent on seeing her fail. Every attempt to protect Trina from his friend's aggression only makes her more suspicious of Deluth's motives no matter which side he chooses. Will technology and her past hold Trina back, or can she learn to accept new alliances on the way to becoming a full spacer?

Margaret McGaffey Fisk
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.
