Tim Aker's HEART OF VERIDON is an action-packed mixture of steampunk, fantasy and noir. Captain-turned-criminal Jacob Burn has cobbled together a precarious new "normal" after crashing his second zepliner. The appearance of a mysterious artefact, however, shatters that illusion, and Jacob is suddenly on the run from both the law and his allies. (Kindle | Kobo)
Both Library Journal and The Ranting Dragon included it in their Top 20 Steampunk lists, alongside such genre greats as William Gibson, Tim Powers, and Cherie Priest.
