Escape on Frostmoon
A steampunk fantasy novella with romantic elements.
Captain Ellanor Whiteblade is home for Frostmoon after a long assignment under the ocean on the VN Vega—a fifty-foot, Supernova-class, arcanium-powered Elven attack submarine. Ellanor’s looking forward to a holiday, real food instead of ship’s rations, and a bath, and not necessarily in that order. But the Rear Admiral has one more mission for her. She has to transport twenty cases of Moonshine to the King of Venicia, right when the new Prohibition Act has been declared. But that’s not the worst part. The Moonshine belongs to a Human.
Gifford Fox has his own reasons for wanting to escape the Human city of Mandaria, reasons he’s been instructed not to reveal to the Vega’s frosty captain. But when the prototype near-silent propulsion system fails and the Human subs start firing on the Vega, he has to rely on his enemies to help him escape, and his own magic to hide them.
