Pax Britannia: Anno Frankenstein

There's only a couple of months to go now until the release of Pax Britannia: Anno Frankenstein and, just to whet your appetites for the title still further, I have a little treat for you today - the blurb from the back cover of the book.


Ulysses Quicksilver, agent of the crown, jumps into a time vortex pursuing Daniel Dashwood, a madman bent on sharing modern technology with Hitler's forces and changing history to suit his evil ends. Rewind several decades, to the time of the Second Great War, to Darmstadt. The Nazis are battling the steampunk empire of Magna Britannia, cooking up necrotic super-soldiers in the gothic towers of Castle Frankenstein.

In the forests outside the castle, other forces are gathering. Ulysses' father is there, proving that dashing good looks and a talent for swashbuckling adventures run in the family, and wondering why his British masters have partnered him with weakling scientist Dr. Jekyll. The ladies of the Monstrous Regiment are also there to help, but there may be other gothic monsters in the hills...

Anno Frankenstein is released on 12 May in the UK and May 17 in the US.
