Desmond has abandoned his mission and spirited away his young charge, Lij, in order to save the boy from a lifetime of experiments. Dogged by several political and religious factions, the two cross borders from Tejas into the land of the Five Civilized Tribes and Desmond wonders if they’ll ever be safe.
Guys, I can’t think of how to blurb this book without giving a ton of stuff away, but it is friggen awesome! It combines alternate history with steampunk and sharpshooters and sorta telekinetic/psychic people who have been created by the government and oh my gourd why haven’t I seen more people talking about this novella?!
