Greetings Otherworld travelers, and welcome to our first promotion of the week. We’ve got a wildly entertaining story for you that pitches you into an alternate history a couple of times, so if that’s up your alley, get ready to dive in. Read on to learn more about Lamplight, A Keepers Novel.
Author A. David Barrett has debuted his historical fantasy Lamplight, A Keepers Novel, and you’d be forgiven for thinking he’d been doing this for years. If you started this book on a whim, you’d be surprised by how quickly it turns on the spectacle and awe, and sets you down an incredibly entertaining path. It’s a fun twist on various points of history, with plenty of worldbuilding outside of what we know from old myths and legends. Barrett also develops awesome characters that you can’t help but want to learn more about, whether it’s the ones you meet early on, or their ancestors.
As Davey O’Shea works as a Sparker for Nikola Tesla, implementing his wireless electricity technology to the streets of London in 1888, he is also on the lookout as a detective for Scotland Yard during the peak of Jack the Ripper’s gruesome spree. Visited by a strange man one night out on the job, Davey is presented with the legendary sword, Excalibur, and upon touching it, learns he is a descendant of King Arthur himself. Now armed with the knowledge of his famed ancestor, Davey joins forces with other descendants of the Round Table to search for King Arthur’s true nemesis. Always two steps behind, however, and with more of the Ripper’s victims piling up, Davey must find a way to get ahead in order to stop both past and present adversaries.
Those who pick up this book will quickly find out what a page-turner it is. As the pieces are set in place, it goes on to show just how incredibly well everything comes together. Barrett writes his prose with a cinematic flair, helping to immerse readers who like to see action play out in their mind. As quick as everything falls into place, the story wraps up in what seems like a flash, leaving readers hungering for more. Luckily, Barrett leaves hope for the story to follow. But for now, it is also a wonderful self-contained tale, to which you should give a chance. Check out Lamplight, A Keepers Novel on Amazon today!
