Atlantean Devices: Book 1
It’s a game of cat and mouse, and he’s the mouse.
Pursued by his father’s assassin-butler, British scholar Frank flees to Romania to study the Atlantean technology on nobleman Radu’s land.
Soon the assassin is the least of his problems: attacked by bandits, pursued by an uncanny revenant, badly wounded, he takes shelter in Radu’s castle. But which of his hosts can be trusted? Which are in league with the very devil that pursued him? Frank soon finds he has run head-first into a deadly battle of wills that he may not survive.
Inspired by classic vampire novels, this is best described as Steampunk Dracula meets Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and forms the first part of an epic three volume story.
