Spire City: Infection Book 1 by Daniel AusemaSpire City, Season One: Infected Book 1

Serialized fiction in a steampunk city. Targeted by a mad scientist’s deadly serum, these outcasts band together to uncover the truth, and to fight back.

Spire City is home to mighty machines of steam power and clockwork, and giant beetles pull picturesque carriages over cobbled streets, but there is a darker secret behind these wonders. A deadly infection, created by a mad scientist, is spreading through the city, targeting the poor and powerless, turning them slowly into animals. A group of those infected by the serum join together to survive, to trick the wealthy out of their money, and to fight back.

Chels is an immigrant girl who has found a home among the infected, though she is still healthy. She watches new beetles arrive by train and does her part to help the band find food and allies within the city. Infection, though, is always a danger…for her and every one who chooses to help.
