    This is a short story in the Clockwork Dagger series and it's as exciting as the previous books!

    Harper Voyage Impulse and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this story for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can get a copy now.

    Captain Hue got the wasters off his ship and took it into port to repair and clean up.  He didn't expect to get boarded by Caskentian soldiers.  Now he's out on a quest for the queen.  He just wants to be a passenger ship but he can't order the soldiers off.  He has an old enemy on board, too.  Best thing he can do is hide his son and hope for the best.

    This is basically a suicide mission and the crew knows it.  Their only choice is to die immediately by not acquiescing or maybe have a chance of surviving by continuing.  It gets worse when they take part of their crew away and they try to find his son to remove him, too.  It appears they are going to use dark magic to kill the wasters.  The captain hates that, too.

    When they mutiny, they get the ship back.  But it's going down.  Will anyone survive?

    This is a teaser that makes me want to read another in this series.  Hope the author is planning one!
