Heart of Time

Here’s a book I’ve been working on for a long time now. It’s a steampunk adventure in the universe of the Three Cities.

untitled-design-2Surrounded by the Wall and engulfed in the everlasting cloud of smoke coming from innumerable chimneys and pipes the Three Cities are a harsh and dark place to grow up in.

All Nethele can remember are the stone cold walls of the Monastery where she was raised and trained in the deadly arts of the Grey Hands, the secret order of the assassins that carry out all the dirty work of the Holy Church. Her sole purpose in life has been serving the church, her only reason to live – her faith.

But her world falls apart when she discovers that the Church is the one who is responsible for the death of her parents. As she travels back in time to change the past she is faced with a hard choice between love and duty. Will she be able to give up one for the other?
