Waiting On Wednesday - Dawn's Early Light by Ballantine & Morris

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Dawn's Early Light: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel by Pip Ballantine & Tee Morris
Ace (March 25, 2014)

Working for the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, one sees innumerable technological wonders. But even veteran agents Braun and Books are unprepared for what the electrifying future holds…

After being ignominiously shipped out of England following their participation in the Janus affair, Braun and Books are ready to prove their worth as agents. But what starts as a simple mission in the States—intended to keep them out of trouble—suddenly turns into a scandalous and convoluted case that has connections reaching as far as Her Majesty the Queen.

Even with the help of two American agents from the Office of the Supernatural and the Metaphysical, Braun and Books have their work cut out for them as their chief suspect in a rash of nautical and aerial disasters is none other than Thomas Edison. Between the fantastic electric machines of Edison, the eccentricities of MoPO consultant Nikola Tesla, and the mysterious machinations of a new threat known only as the Maestro, they may find themselves in far worse danger than they ever have been in before…

This series has been a ton of fun so far (check out my review of The Janus Affair), and I had the pleasure of hosting their cover reveal back in May of last year, so this one is definitely a must-read.


  1. I really need to read more steampunk.

    1. I don't read a lot of steampunk, Alex, but this and David Barnett's Gideon Smith series are two I'm really enjoying.

  2. OOh that one looks exciting!!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Read the first one and enjoyed it despite a strange, out of place, orgy scene. I should read The Janus Affair and see if it would cause me to add this title to my list.

    1. Yeah, that was a strange scene, wasn't it?

      The Janus Affair didn't have as strong of a story at its core, but the characters were developed nicely, the steampunk was a better fit, and Books got his chance at hero.

  4. I read and liked "Phoenix Rising" and "Janus Affair". Therefore I ordered a copy of "dawn's Early Light" in advance. I read a lot of steampunk.
    David Barnett's Gideon Smith series is a good one too. The next book in the series "Gideon Smith and the Brass Dragon" will be out in September 2014.
