Recent Comments "The City of the Dead"

This may well be my favorite installment of the series so far. Rom's developing abilities have led her into ever greater peril and the stakes have been raised considerably. Very much looking forward to seeing how this plays out in the rest of the series!

Looking forward to Part 2 of the Steampunk Tales!
