Overview

An apocalyptic alien invasion set humanity on the edge of extermination. Unable to match technology with the invaders, humanity bet their existence on their physical strength. In a desperate last stand by the world’s greatest scientists, the cataclysm electromagnetic pulse wiped out technology on the planet, stranding the aliens on earth, locking them in the cage with the beasts of humanity that remained. Using pre-industrial weapons of war, the surviving humans fought back…

Six years later, Gieo, the self-proclaimed last pilot on earth, was shot down yet again. She finds herself in the unwelcoming post apocalyptic Old West town of Tombstone as the guest of a beautiful gunfighter; the alien huntress and gunslinger Fiona has a turbulent history to match her violent existence that both intrigues and frightens Gieo. Their budding romance hits an immediate snag when Fiona’s mysterious past finally catches up with her, bringing with it old flames, hot grudges, and a rekindling of the war with the aliens that had cooled to a stalemate.

Sky-captain Gieo and her fleet of steam-powered dirigibles are humanity’s best chance to turn the tide of war against the alien invaders, but only if Fiona can protect her from blind cultists, jealous ex-girlfriends, and a town of apocalypse cowboys with suspect sanity.

Editorial Reviews

Bending the Bookshelf - Sally Bibrary
Kind of a steampunk, post-apocalyptic, western, alien invasion mash-up, The Gunfighter and The Gear-Head is the most fun I've had between the pages of a book all year. It's sexy, it's funny, it's action-packed, and did I mention, it's sexy? Extremely well-written, with a story that's told a break-neck pace, but which never becomes tiresome, this is a book I would gladly read again and again...full review at:
Good Lesbian Fiction - Les Fic
Not that many Lesbian Science Fiction books around, not that many that are good, but this one you will be happy to read!

This book is from an emerging writer in lesbian literature, so far only recently published a handful of short story collections which have been well received. The book we are looking at now is her first full length novel and we need to look out for this author, she will surely become popular. 5 Stars for this new young writer
