Review: CLOCKWORK MENAGERIE by Karen Kincy 

By far my favorite of this exciting series [SHADOWS OF ASPHODEL], this companion novella is "Dieselpunk Romance" for the gentlemen. Technomancer Archmage Konstantin and Airship Captain Theodore Himmel pair off. What a glorious spark, matching a world-wise Navy captain, with that pilot mystique--bold and daring; and a true research scientist: dedicated, diligent, nerdy, and sometimes potentially dreary. Put these two on a diplomatic mission from 1914 Prussia to The Court of St. Petersburg--oh my!! The troubles they can cause--and the troubles that are caused for them [not to mention the illegality of their relationship]. Will Love triumph over tribulations? Read this adorable novella and see! 16 Stars!!!

A companion novella to the Shadows of Asphodel series, from Konstantin's point of view.


Konstantin would love to hide in his laboratory and dissect the clockwork dragon captured from Russia, but the Archmages of Vienna have other plans. He finds himself shipped off to St. Petersburg as the scientific attaché to an ambassador. His orders? Look, but don't touch. Of course, he considers this an impossible request with so much enemy technomancy to explore.


To make matters worse, Konstantin has to work with the dashing zeppelin commander Himmel, a man who should also be untouchable. They can't act on the smoldering attraction between them without risking it all. Faced with an illegal relationship and a devious rival technomancer, Konstantin might not return from this mission in Russia without conquering the forbidden.
