by Polk, C. L.
Magic, Mystery and Madness!

Imagine this: in a world somewhat like ours, but slightly different, there's a country much like England after World War I. The difference being, in this version, they have magic. And there's also the Solace: an otherworldly underworld that is more parallel to our own and under the care of faerie-like beings. That's just the beginning in this amazing gaslamp fantasy which puts a whole new spin on the idea of a world with magic. Focusing on Miles, a war veteran who's faked his death to flee a rich family threatening his with a life of servitude, the story starts with a murder and takes more twists and turns from there. Who is the beautiful Mr. Tristan Hunter that's oh so interested in the murder and in helping Miles solve it? What sort of family did Miles really run away from? And most intriguing of all-what sort of lengths would a world of magic go to in order to keep that magic in the hands of only the chosen few? Whether you like mystery, fantasy or even romance-this story has it all and will keep you guessing until the last page.

After going to war to escape his destiny, Miles Singer is unable to leave his past behind when he, after faking his own death, reinvents himself as a doctor at a cash-strapped veteran?s hospital where he can no longer hide what he truly is. Original.
