Gears of a Mad God - Brent Nichols
Gears of a Mad God is a Steampunk Lovecraft Adventure. This book is free for the kindle. This is the first in a series of books based in the early 1920s. Steam was still king. The Lovecraft connection is tenuous. Colleen Garman is not a proper young lady. She like to dig into the gears and the grease, and get her hands dirty. When Colleen's uncle Roderick dies she makes the three day trip to Vancouver. Roderick was her last living relative, and she feels compelled to put his affairs in order. What Colleen finds in Vancouver will change her life forever. Colleen is about to be embroiled in kidnapping, cults, and murder. A fairly short book, but long on adventure. Highly recommended.
