Overview

From the national bestselling author of Tin Swift comes the next Age of Steam adventure.

In steam age America, men, monsters, machines, and magic battle to claim the same scrap of earth and sky. In this madness, one man struggles to keep his mission intact....

Bounty hunter and lycanthrope Cedar Hunt, accompanied by witch Mae Lindson and the capricious Madder brothers, is on the hunt for the Holder, an uncanny device capable of deadly destruction—until a glacial storm stops his crew in its tracks, forcing them to take refuge in Des Moines, Iowa, a town ruled by the iron fist of mayor Killian Vosbrough and plagued by the steely Strange.

Cedar soon learns that Vosbrough is mining cold copper for the cataclysmic generators he’s manufacturing deep below Des Moines, bringing his search for the Holder to a screeching halt. Now Cedar and his crew must chip through ice, snow, and bone-chilling bewitchment to expose Vosbrough’s dangerous scheme—before he rules the land and sky…

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Cold Copper

“Monk’s pacing is perfect, and the characters of her ensemble cast are so well drawn that each can justifiably command the lead as the story requires…Monk’s Age of Steam just keeps getting better.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Monk’s newest novel propels the steampunk-and-sorcery territory into all new territory…Falling into the improbable space of steampunk-fantasy-Old West tale, Devon Monk’s third book in the Age of Steam series is a winner on all counts.”—SF Revu

“Fast-paced action and adventure. With plenty of suspense, mystery, and a bit of romance—this steampunk series never disappoints.”—SciFiChick.com

Publishers Weekly
Danger from the Strange—and from human greed—grows in the American Weird West in this page-turning third Age of Steam installment (after Tin Swift). Cursed werewolves Cedar and Wil Hunt, powerful witch Mae Lindson, and the maybe-not-quite-human Madder brothers continue their pursuit of the Holder, a Strange weapon that could tear apart the world. Sidetracked by dangerous winter weather and an old oath, they arrive in Des Moines, Iowa, where the mayor has a vendetta against the Madders and no intention of letting Cedar pursue the Strange in his city. Meanwhile, engineer and “deviser” Rose Small and skyship captain Lee Hink, on the romantic outs, pursue stolen equipment that combines technology, witchcraft, and the Strange to create weaponized automatons. Monk’s pacing is perfect, and the characters of her ensemble cast are so well drawn that each can justifiably command the lead as the story requires. Constantly improving series are rare, but Monk’s Age of Steam just keeps getting better. Agent: Miriam Kriss, Irene Goodman Literary Agency. (July)
