The Elementalist: Revolutionary (Book II)

The Elementalist: Revolutionary - The Chandra Tribune

. . .

“In a war between split loyalties,
defiance was just the beginning.”

Haran revolutionaries have declared war on the League alliance, launching a coup in the Darmoilen capital and kidnapping foreign officers in a southern diplomatic city. Rumor has it Haran agents are hunting for an object of legendary power: divine aetheric crystals from a long-lost Darmoilen cave. The League has never heard of such a thing, though a captive double agent with valuable insights is left with no choice but to expose her knowledge to a harrowing interrogator.

Working as a research librarian at Borellia’s Special Archives now, it isn’t long before newly-retired aviatrix and budding elementalist Voi Román is approached by the League with a daunting assignment: verifying the double agent’s intelligence. While analyzing ancient manuscripts and occult illustrations to anticipate the Haran’s next big move, Voi uncovers some intriguing information about a historic saint that could help solve the mystery of the lost cave.

After months without word, clairvoyant “Ronny” Callahan of Apexian Intelligence contacts Voi in an unusual way, investigating why League forces have suddenly arrived in the Sha Badam Desert—away from the Haran conflict. However, when Borellian Military Intelligence captain Andre Neverri rallies her help to recruit pilots and validate her research, Voi carefully considers leaking information about Andre’s top-secret mission to Ronny, as he suspects the Borellians may have ulterior motives that could compromise their alliance.

As Voi’s role in the Haran’s Revolutionary War becomes increasingly muddled, what’s a librarian to do? Oh well, so much for retirement.

The Elementalist: Revolutionary (TEREV) is the second installment of the dieselpunk dark fantasy series.

Harken back to the golden ages of the League of Nations, globe-trotting aviators, and majestic luxury airships while exploring metaphysical phenomena such as telepathy and telekinesis in the world of Element 7. Here, a connection with the elements is a tangible thing, the power of the mind knows no bounds, and the politics of such forces may just be a cause worth conspiring—if not dying—for.
