A bounty hunter with a price on his head, Davrick Caliburn must evade the sorcerous reach of the Grand Imperium. Never mind the fact that his new employer is a vampiric blood-baroness—she’s promised him a pocket full of coins and a one-way ticket out of the occupied city of Kardre. The only problem: that “ticket” is aboard an Imperium battle-train.
Joining forces with a dandy-dressed astral mage, a maladroit gearmeister, and an ill-tempered thief, the team will storm the battle-train to pilfer an ancient dragon stone powerful enough to turn the tide of war. But between the killer automatons, elite enemy troops, and the fiendish sorcerer who leads them, Davrick can only wonder what kind of a mess he’s gotten himself into this time. And what does a master vampire want with a mythical dragon stone anyway?
Battle-Train Siege is the first novella of the six-part Siege Chronicles.
