Overview

What price redemption? Is martial honor worth the cost of one's soul?
Lieutenant Commander August Micholson lost his first ship, the wooden frigate USS Northport, in reckless battle against the ironclad ram CSS Virginia. However, Flag Officer Andrew Foote offers the disgraced young Micholson a chance to redeem himself: he can take the ironclad gunboat USS James B. Eads on an undercover mission to destroy a hidden rebel boat yard, where a fleet of powerful ironclads is being constructed which will allow the Confederate Navy to dominate the Mississippi.
But dangers far more sinister than rebel ironclads await Micholson and his crew. On the dark waters of the Yazoo River, deep within rebel territory, they become entangled in a plot devised by a slave and his master to summon African fire spirits to annihilate the Federal armies. Micholson must battle devils both internal and external to save the lives of his crew, sink the Confederate fleet, and foil the arcane conspiracy. Ultimately, Micholson is faced with a terrible choice - he can risk the lives of every inhabitant of America, both Union and Confederate, or destroy himself by merging with a demon and forever melding his own soul with that of his greatest enemy...

"Andrew Fox writes like a combination of Kurt Vonnegut, Dave Barry and Molly Ivins..."
--Lucius Shepard, author of The Golden and Life During Wartime
"A Fahrenheit 451 for the post-millennium, told with Fox's magnificent evocation of place and twisted humor. Wonderful!"
--Kage Baker, author of The Company novels
Praise for Andrew Fox's Fat White Vampire Blues:
"After two decades of reviewing books for Fangoria, I don't recall being as surprised and delighted as I was with Fat White Vampire Blues. Andrew Fox's hero is the anti-Lestat we didn't even know we needed. This is the best thing to happen to vampire fiction in ages."
--Linda Marotta, Fangoria Magazine

    Very Enjoyable!!!
    I am not a big reader so if a book doesn't grab me from the start then its doomed to collect dust. Fire on Iron was the kind of historical fiction that immediately allows you insight into the thoughts of the main character. I enjoyed this soooooo much that I will definately read Mr. Fox's other novels. I'm a fan!
