He never promised happily ever after, but Lucinda is still dismayed by how quickly reality intrudes on her fairy tale. Assassination attempts and lightning strikes disturb her honeymoon, but the return home brings no peace of mind. When the discovery of a magical conspiracy shakes her faith in everything she trusts, she vows to expose the Fire Warlock’s most shameful secret and see justice done.
As a hot summer draws towards a violent end, Lucinda teeters between terror and rage. She’d be less angry about risking her life if she didn’t suspect her husband—her hero!—intends to step aside and let her die.
Engine of Lies, my second novel and the sequel to The Locksmith in the Reforging series, is scheduled to be published in July.
Seeing something that started out as daydreams turning into a real book is exciting, and I love the cover art, by Catherine Archer-Wills! I am really looking forward to seeing this actually in print.
