Storms of Lazarus (Shadows of Asphodel #2)
Sometimes escape is impossible. Sometimes love isn't enough.
1913. Christmas Eve. Ardis hardly expects a quiet holiday with Wendel, between fleeing Constantinople and hiding from an ancient society of assassins. And they owe a debt to a certain archmage.
In Königsberg, Prussia, they work with Konstantin on the next evolution of Project Lazarus. Wendel once called Königsberg home, the city now besieged by the Russians and their clockwork engines of war. This may be Wendel’s last chance to save his family and find redemption, but he's tormented by nightmares and tempted by laudanum. Ardis fears her love isn’t enough to save Wendel. Her hands are full piloting the automatons, and she's terrified to tell him a secret of her own. Will they—and their love—survive the storms of war?

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to start this second book in Kincy's series. The first book blew me away, it was completely unexpected and I loved every single thing about it. And as my first foray into dieselpunk, once I became immersed in the world Kincy created, I knew I was hooked and I wanted more.
To see Wendel and Ardis again was a real treat and to see them together as a team? I don't even have words for how great it was too see them together. To see them work side by side and trust one another.
There is just something about the two of them together that feels right, that is right. Add in a touch of the paranormal and you have one heck of a fun and entertaining series and I didn't hesitate as I dove right into book two.
Once again Kincy captured my attention and held it with the clockwork creatures and inventions that riddles the pages of this novel and the developing romance between two certain main characters was just the icing on the cake.
I am so very excited with where this series is going and seriously, I want more. The adventure, action, the plot, the romance, all of it. I can't wait to see what awaits them in the next installment and I for one, will be right there to read it when it comes out.
