In a Golden Age where spark reactors power the airways, and creatures of Light and Shadow walk openly among us, a deadly game of Alchemists and Warlocks has begun.

When an unusual cargo drags airship-pilot Elle Chance into the affairs of the mysterious Mr Marsh, she must confront her destiny and do everything in her power to stop the Alchemists from unleashing a magical apocalypse.

Combining the best elements of nineteenth century gothic fiction with contemporary Steampunk, adventure, romance and the supernatural, Liesel Schwarz has crafted a truly exceptional debut, the first book in The Chronicles of Light and Shadow trilogy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Inventive, lush and full of heart, The Chronicles of Light and Shadow are books to be devoured. Schwarz is a force to be reckoned with * George Mann *
The soon-to-be high-priestess of British steampunk * The Independent *
a distinctive read, made so much better by Schwarz's undoubted skill as a writer and story teller, creating a world of richly layered environments ... I'm not really sure what else you could ask from a novel: believable characters, an engrossing plot, written by a capable author ... highly enjoyable * sci-fi-online *
The world itself is beautifully realised, and mixes a few well-loved steampunk staples (you can't escape airships, for example) with some unique ideas that really bring it to life ... genuine brilliance * GeekPlanetOnline.com *

“A fun steampunk adventure”

I love this sort of fantasy novel: a slightly historical setting, lots of steampunk creations, and a female lead who knows what she wants from life and won't let the fact that she's a woman stop her. The... More

“Rip-roaring, corset-busting fun!”

I have decided that Steampunk is my go-to genre whenever I need a bit of a mental holiday. When life gets a bit too much, I just hold up my imaginary parasol and dream of vampires and dirigibles.

This book filled my... More
