Perchance to Steam

Author Rowan Green’s debut novel brings together the mysterious Tarot and steampunk for a fantastic about a wonderful fantasy world seemingly drawn from the Major and Minor arcana of the Tarot.

From the novel’s back cover:

“The story follows a young man named James Baker who is a self proclaimed tarot reader and a computer geek. Like many others, he has an apartment and a job that he doesn’t really enjoy, however, it pays the bills.

All things considered, it’s a pretty comfortable life, if not a bit dull. All of that changes when he is pulled into his Tarot deck by an unknown force. He wakes up in the Realm of Tarocchi, with no idea of how he arrived, much less how to get home.

Now James has to contend with a world where everyone dresses like they’re straight out of a Charles Dickens novel, steam power is the order of the day, and the technology is nothing like he’s experienced. To top it off, he’s been thrust into the position of the Fool, or Key 0 in the Major Arcana.

Follow him as he navigates this new world with its share of joys and challenges, unlike anything he’s experienced before.”

Anna is currently focused on her series THE DEVIL’S IN THE DETAILS about the very human Hector Rhoades and his curious friendship with the Devil, Luci Inferi. Along the way, Hector learns about the dangers of preconceptions and that demons aren’t necessarily something to be feared.

The first novel is LUCI: RHOADES TO HELL, and will be followed by LUCI: RHOADES TO RECOVERY and then LUCI: RHOADES TO REDEMPTION. The series is about preconceptions, friendship, love, loss, grief, and healing (This particular series is aimed at LGBTIA+ folks and those who support that community.)

I love reading fiction that transcends genre and creates characters that have no blueprint but still illustrate universal truth. Trevor, his friends, Hector and even Luci do all of that, and more. I hope this is just the first of a series and this crew of friends explores human emotions again soon! If you love to read outside of the box and enjoy a different perspective on heaven, hell, humans and celestrals, settle down with a good snack. This book will leave you hungry, and hungry for more!
