Editorial Reviews


"This fast paced, highly descriptive adventure involving a wide cast of characters is an ideal opportunity to draw in new readers. This is an good sign of things to come." - Rick Brown, - 4/5 stars

From the Author

This book came out of a love of steampunk and a desire to push it further. With so much going on in our own high modernist era, I thought writing fantasy in a setting like this would be a lot of fun. And it was.

I wrote it in a fast-paced pulpy style because I personally can't get excited about long fantasy epics most of the time, and because it suits the era. The idea was to make it visually appealing, exciting and vivid while still maintaining a certain intellectual depth.

Blightcross by C.A. Lang

This is another I had in my wish list. I was hoping for a steam-punk novel and it almost had me at the start. There seemed to be an air ship and possibly Victorian values if not dress, but there was this massive creep into other elements that shifted it from steam-punk and into an alternate world whose era seemed to be a bit slippery. There seemed to be some technology that was beyond what I was expecting and then just a whole lot of magic and a feeling we were in some bygone era that had magic and was transitioning to machine.

Clearly at some point I felt more like I was reading something like a cross between Edgar Rice Burroughs Mars series and Simon R. Green's Death-stalker series with a whole bunch of magic tossed into the mix and then add in some dark fantasy similar to Stephen Palmer's The Rat and the Serpent.

The main character Capra is not what she seems which is a typical trope. She's apparently not what everyone else thinks nor does she have a clear grasp of who or what she is herself. But that might not matter because she's an adventuress and an opportunist trying to stay one step ahead of her past and apparently burning bridges as she goes. Dannac is her only friend and they are an unlikely pair since she is Valoii and he is Ehzeri and they are mortal enemies. And they are on their way to Blightcross where they believe people don't care as much about the differences between the two. But the question is; is Blightcross really what they think it is?

They are thieves and they are on one last scam that will net them enough money to retire, but that quickly goes south when their past catches up, Capra's past, and the people who are pursuing her as a deserter are close at her heals.

When I started this novel I wasn't quite sure where it was going because there seemed to be several different genres happening at the same time. After a couple of chapters though, I'm glad I kept reading.

The story takes place on an arid, war-stricken world where natural magic is slowly being supplanted by mechanism and oil production. Capra Jorassian is an armed forces deserter who is brought, against her will, into an il-fated mission across the scarred and blighted desert known as "The Hex". She is being pursued by rival armed forces, who are on the same mission but have past personal grudges against her.

The different intrigues takes place against a very well-constructed world at the beginning, but then as the book progresses the descriptions get more intense as events get more and more bizarre. Clock towers, metal giants, plains of shattered machinery, armies of shadow warriors ... the stakes just keep getting higher.

Throughout the novel, the characterization and storytelling are both solid. Some of the dialog sounds a little bit like 21st-century formal conversation, but maybe that's just me. All in all, an intriguing work of speculative fiction and I'd like to know if there's going to be a sequel.
