The Elementalist: Revolutionary (Book II)

The Elementalist: Revolutionary - The Chandra Tribune

. . .

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

Haran extremists have declared war on the League alliance and its supporters. The majestic Darmoilen capital of Durge faces a coup, and the diplomatic port city of Tahili is taken by revolutionaries in the south. Rumor has it that the Haran are searching for an object of legendary power: aetheric crystals from a long-lost cave in Darmoil. The League has never heard of such a cave, 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 researcher at the League Special Archives in Borellia now, it isn’t long before retired aviatrix and budding elementalist Voi Román is approached by a Sector One agent with a daunting new assignment: verifying the double agent’s claims about the lost cave. Suddenly analyzing occult illustrations and manuscripts to anticipate the Haran’s next move, Voi learns that the limits of her unique abilities are hardly understood and that even more lost knowledge about her kind could be found abroad.

Meanwhile, the Borellian government has contracted the services of former air guard captain Andre Neverri, Voi’s tireless suitor, for a top-secret project. And after months without word, clairvoyant Agent Ron Callahan of Apexian Intelligence reaches out to Voi to investigate why League forces have arrived in the Sha Badam Desert, away from the heart of the Darmoilen conflict. However, when Andre also contacts Voi at Sector One’s request to recruit fearless pilots who can validate Voi’s research, she questions sharing confidential information with an unauthorized agent—knowing that Ronny suspects some questionable motives beneath the surface of the League and may attempt to counteract her admirer’s plans.

As both men try to protect Voi from the Haran’s Revolutionary War, her curiosity about her elemental heritage only continues to grow. Oh well, so much for romance…or retirement.

The Elementalist: Revolutionary (TEREV) is the second installment of a 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.
