Final cover of The Venusian Gambit — now with a blurb!

You’ve already seen the great cover art by Lauren Saint Onge for The Venusian Gambit (out May 5!), but there was just one thing missing…and now it’s there.


That awesome blurb is from the super-talented writer Beth Cato, author of The Clockwork Dagger and, coming June 9, The Clockwork Crown, both from Harper Voyager. Here’s the non-squinting version:

“Everything the finale of a trilogy should be — constant suspense, genuine characters…. If you start this at bedtime, don’t plan on getting any sleep until you hit The End.”

Beth has been a fan of the Daedalus series since The Daedalus Incident came out, and readily agreed to give Gambit an early read. She’s been extraordinarily generous with her time and her recommendation here, and I’m very, very grateful. You should definitely check out her books and her blog, which not only features a lot of magical steampunk goodness, but also some of the best baking recipes on the Internet.

Seriously, she as a recipe for baked French vanilla mini-donuts up today. I’m hungry just looking at them.

Thank you, Beth, for your kind words and all your support. Everyone go buy her books!
