Novedad: Brother's Ruin, de Emma Newman ha publicado esta semana Brother's Ruin, la novela corta de Emma Newman que Antonio Díaz reseñó para nosotros la semana pasada. 

Esta es su sinopsis:
The year is 1850 and Great Britain is flourishing, thanks to the Royal Society of the Esoteric Arts. When a new mage is discovered, Royal Society elites descend like buzzards to snatch up a new apprentice. Talented mages are bought from their families at a tremendous price, while weak mages are snapped up for a pittance. For a lower middle class family like the Gunns, the loss of a son can be disastrous, so when seemingly magical incidents begin cropping up at home, they fear for their Ben's life and their own livelihoods. 
But Benjamin Gunn isn't a talented mage. His sister Charlotte is, and to prevent her brother from being imprisoned for false reporting she combines her powers with his to make him seem a better prospect. 
When she discovers a nefarious plot by the sinister Doctor Ledbetter, Charlotte must use all her cunning and guile to protect her family, her secret and her city. 
Brother's Ruin is the first in a new gaslamp fantasy series by Emma Newman.

  1. Que buena pinta. Si no fuera por ti, seguro que yo de estos libros no me enteraba. Me lo voy a apuntar. No conozco ni a la autora ni su obra.
    Un saludo

  2. Es una obra muy, muy entretenida. Y Emma Newman es una escritora que merece la pena descubrir. A ver si puedo reseñar Planetfall pronto.
