Gareth and Adele are BACK

"A thrilling, original fantasy that scratches the gothic adventure itchlike nobody's business. Clay and Susan Griffith never disappoint!"
-Cherie Priest, Locus Award-winning author of Boneshaker

"A great introduction to Gareth & Adele's characters and the creative world that began with Vampire Empire. It has whetted my appetite for both the future adventures of Gareth & Adele and wanting to immerse myself into the original series as well."
-Book Swoon

"Exciting, action-packed, emotional.... there's plenty to love here for fans new and old."

Return to the epic Vampire Empire world! Or, head there for the first time with husband and wife duo Clay and Susan Griffiths' latest book The Geomancer. The first Gareth and Adele Novel is the start of an ongoing, character-based, urban fantasy series set in the same Vampire Empire universe as the authors' previous trilogy. If you fell in love with Adele and Greyfriar -- er, Gareth -- then this book is for you. If you think vampire novels can't still be fresh, then this book is for you. If you're hungry for more than the typical Victorian steampunk, or if you're new to that genre, then this book -- and series -- is for you.

The uneasy stalemate between vampires and humans is over. Adele and Gareth are bringing order to a free Britain, but bloody murders in London raise the specter that Adele's geomancy is failing and the vampires might return. A deranged human called the Witchfinder has surfaced on the Continent, serving new vampire lords and enacting a plan that could destroy the human race.

From a Britain struggling to rebuild to the vampire capital of Paris, from the heart of the Equatorian Empire to a vampire monastery in far-away Tibet, old friends and past enemies return while unexpected allies and terrible new villains arise.

"A cool  world with steampunk and zombies combined. . . . The voice is very real and gritty and I felt immersed in the world. Abercombie-edgy and a quick read at that."

Ben Gold and Miranda, the scientist he loves, have survived the devastating attack on the hidden island of Tamoanchan, when a strange new disease begins to affect its inhabitants.

Miranda develops a test for the original virus that turned the population of most of North America into little more than beasts called Ferals two generations ago, but it proves ineffective against the new bug. Can Ben and the people of Tamoanchan protect against another invasion in time to save themselves from the disease?

"This is definitely worth checking out for people who like their fantasy not stamped out by machine."

Christopher Sinclair was a mechanical engineer -- until he stepped into a world where magic works and no one has heard of a pistol. Now he's a priest of war, raised from the dead and promoted to take command of the army regiment he trained and equipped. 

Lalania is a bard with a connection to a mysterious group of scholars Christopher hopes can help him find his way back to his wife and his home. But the journey to the scholars is long, and Lalania's motivations are too murky for him to truly trust her. Their journey is fraught with assassins, hostile clergymen, dubious allies, and the hidden enemy controlling them all.
