But first, a word from … Today’s Sponsor

The planet Earth has yet to recover from the Ice Age and its political life is in turmoil. After a mass Air Corps assassination, Taziri is the only pilot left to help the marshals chase the killers across the skies of Marrakesh. Together they uncover a vast conspiracy of deposed aristocrats, wealthy industrialists, and xenophobic warmongers plotting against the Queen. 

Don’t expect this world to conform to the history that you know. The people and places are different. The climate and wildlife are different.

Even death is different here.



“A great mix of intrigue, action and adventure. I’m already looking forward to more in the series.” –Mr. S. J. Wales

Here’s the set-up:

For fans of Cherie Priest, Scott Westerfield, and Mark Hodder: 

Taziri just wants a quiet evening at home with her family, but when the entire Northern Air Corps is assassinated, Taziri is the only pilot left to help the marshals chase the killers across the skies of Marrakesh. Together they uncover a vast conspiracy of deposed aristocrats, wealthy industrialists, and xenophobic warmongers plotting against the Queen.


 

The case becomes terrifyingly personal when Taziri finds that the killers have turned her own inventions into weapons and her family’s survival may hang in the balance. Assassins stalk the streets as the city erupts into a riotous inferno and the country’s only hope for salvation may be an exiled Incan princess, her swashbuckling lover, and a crippled airship plummeting out of the burning sky. 


 

Readers are introduced to The Other Earth through this stunning vision of an alternate world where fantastical machines sail the seas and the skies, enormous prehistoric beasts still roam the earth, and the restless dead walk among the living.


 

What the Reviewers Say  

Heralded as a work of alternate fiction, this book looks at an Earth which has never recovered from the ice age. Consequently, political powers and religious beliefs are turned up-side down. Taken from the point-of-view of multiple characters, this story follows Taziri, a pilot and marshals as they chase killers across land and sea. Together, they unravel and foil a vast conspiracy against the Queen.”
–Mary E. Young

The Burning Sky is a steampunk thriller set in an alternate world and climatic North Africa. Anti-government terrorist attacks on a train and several airships sets an airship engineer, pilot and two government marshals on a race to find the perpetrators and discover and then thwart a plot to overthrow the Queen.”
–Beck M.

“The world of Burning Skies is rich in detail and so well formed that I want to go back and visit as soon as possible.”
–BarPurple
