The Monstrous Burden of Professor Darkwood (The Darkwood Tales Book 1)

A steampunk fantasy of monstrous proportions

As Armancras thrives at the height of its steam-age, its citizens go about their daily lives with little memory of the city’s bloody past. They would rather marvel at Kempis Pennington’s robot, or travel in the fancy new auto-carriages. A bureaucracy bent on establishing a new secular republic calls the shots, but there is still a deep refusal to let go of the old devoutist ways. While complacency builds, a strange visitor with telepathic abilities is putting his plans into motion.

When Professor Solan Darkwood, an expert in mythology is jilted by her fiance, she finds friendship in the company of archaeologist Edward Blackburn. He leads her beneath the city and shares his newest discovery: a colossal crypt full of preserved Fomorians, ancient horned giants thought to be mythical until now.

But when she is tricked into awakening the dreadful giants and unleashing them on Armancras, the game is afoot and she finds that she is the only thing that can subdue the vicious horde. As she leads the monsters away from the city, invasion awaits…

    This riveting book set in that quasi-Victorian, Steampunk era is a delight to read. The first thing to love is the spunky heroine Solan Darwood with the awesome name. Solan is intelligent (she’s a professor) quirky (has an anxiety disorder), brave (she courageously battles bureaucracy and strange monsters), and has time for love (ex fiancé/new love interest). I laughed at how the adventure grabbed poor Solan and then took off running with the reader in tow! I was particularly intrigued by the mysterious Thomas Mantle with his face paint and undetermined agenda. While it is a fight between good and evil, the lines between are often blurred. I loved the steampunk styles and gadgets, as well as the often frustrating mentality of Earthe’s (yes that is the right spelling) inhabitants. Highly recommended.

    This is a steampunk/alien adventure, probably aimed at adults rather than teens. It starts with the overly shy Solan who in a short period of time, suddenly loses her shyness and becomes a fearsome leader. At some points the plot gets lost amongst detailed descriptions; however, its well worth the read just in terms of being a bit different to the run of the mill steampunk. It is also well-written in the sense that great care has been taken in the editing stage, which is unusual for most of the kindle books i seem to read
