In a world of science, magic is an abomination.

Magic is an abomination. It spread from the Rift, a great chasm hundreds of miles long that nearly split the southern continent in two. The Rift was a portal, a gateway between their world of science and the mythological world of magic.

On the northern continent of Ocker, King Godwin declared that no magical monstrosity would be allowed within their borders. The Royal Inquisitors were formed to investigate reports of mystical occurrences and, should they be found, to destroy them.

Inquisitor Simon Whitlock knows his responsibilities all too well. Along with the apothecary, Luthor Strong, they’ve spent two years inquiring into such reports of magical abominations, though they’ve discovered far more charlatans than true magical creatures. When assigned to investigate Haversham and its reports of werewolves, Simon remains unconvinced that the rumors are true. What he discovers in the frozen little hamlet is that the werewolves are far more real than he believed; yet they’re hardly the most dangerous monster in the city.

Elementary Watson! This book reminded me of the Sherlock Holmes movies with R. Downing Jr. It was rich in characters, scenes, and storyline. The banter beyween the main characters provided grin-making comedic relief without taking away the seriousness of their story. A most excellent read. I really appreciate the authors work and effort. Kudos. Dale M. Baranoski

I loved the storyline and the interplay between the characters. There were a couple of spots with inconsistencies in the timeline, but overlooking those this was a fun break from the mundane. I look forward to reading more...

A few editorial corrections needed to this e-book, but otherwise thoroughly delightful.

I have to say the title fooled me a little. I didnt read where it was going to be a steampunk kind of read but then again I like to try new things and this was really something new for me. It gave a good mental picture of what Victorian Steampunk might have looked like back in the day. I have to admit that it was a very interesting story with twist and turns I didnt see coming. For someone who thought that they wouldnt like steampunk it held my interest very good.

I loved the banter between Simon and Luther! Their interactions were hilarious. This isn't my favorite style/type of book so I had to power thru it, but overall it was well written, I loved the main characters and it had a slight mystery to it. I believe it had a bit of steam punk in it as well...
