Whilst Soul Blaze is due to be released next year, I’ve decided that my next project will be released early December. Ruthless is a Victorian Steampunk set in 1880. What follows is the synopsis as can be found on Goodreads:
The year is 1880 and the Queen of England has gone mad.
After decommissioning her own royal fleet of airships and sending her youngest daughter into exile, the Queen sets about building her own army of killer cyborgs for one purpose; world domination.
However, youngest daughters don’t usually go into exile quietly, and Victoria Hamlyn fits snugly into that category. With an ex-airship pirate and a prison guard who is tired of indifference at her back, she begins her campaign to win back the throne from her mother.
But seeds of discord spread themselves throughout the newborn rebellion as they battle a Queen whose intelligence is matched only by her daughter’s. With the killer cyborgs spreading panic over the capital, the rebellion is joined by those who have suffered long enough at the hands of a psychopath.
But as Victoria’s power amongst the people grows, so does the distrust of her closest colleagues. For some of them, the resemblance to her mother is too unnerving to trust.
Both women will do whatever it takes to destroy the other. And both are completely, utterly, ruthless.
I’ve been writing Ruthless since 2011, and I’m so excited to be releasing it this year. Jottifiers will recognise it, and yes, it is the same project 🙂 Really looking forward to seeing what you guys think!
