A Conspiracy of Alchemists, The Chronicles of Light and Shadow

Many thanks to Random House (or should that be Random Penguin?) for the Conspiracy of Alchemists ARC.

Dirigibles, Vampires and Warlocks? Why yes please, I think I will!


“For urban fantasy fans and readers of Gail Carriger’s Changeless, Cherie Priest’s Boneshaker, and Rob Reid’s Year Zero, a fun, fast-paced, action-packed new historical fantasy series starring vampires, fairies, and the unforgettable heroine, Elle Chance.

A Conspiracy of Alchemists is the first book of the Chronicles of Light and Shadow series, starring the spunky dirigible pilot Elle Chance and the handsome warlock Marsh. Set during the Belle Epoque, Conspiracy is a thrilling and inventive historical fantasy, where the myths and legends of Old Europe live side by side with the wondrous creations of modern scientists and aviators. It’s also set in a world haunted by vampires, fairies, and other supernatural creatures. And it mixes a thrill-a-minute page-turning plot with a genuinely moving love story. In Conspiracy, Elle and Marsh face off against a shadowy band of alchemists intent on sundering the veil between the world of the supernatural and our own-and learn that Elle has a mysterious part to play in this magical conspiracy.”

This one looks like so much fun, can’t wait to dig in! I’ve got to say though, I prefer the UK cover to the US one shown (at Random’s request). Sounds delicious either way though! I’ve not got around to the Carriger series yet, but I like Boneshaker and Year Zero so I’ve got high hopes for this.
