William Beck Launch Party! Event date: Saturday, October 4, 2014 - 6:00pm Bring everyone you know to our launch party featuring local author William Beck and his eagerly awaited second book in the Marlebonne series.... October 4th at 6:00 PM Trouble is brewing in the city of Chevaire. The volatile Returners movement spreads unrest in the streets, lashing out at the Kingdom of Marlebonne’s technological advances. Tensions are at a boiling point when Brunois Bonne’Chance, a Frog in the employ of Lady Auroka Fiercheval, arrives with an ancient and arcane book. Together with Brunois’s niece, Rana, and Auroka’s childhood mentor, Brioche, they set out on a journey that will take them past the edge of reality in their quest for understanding. But supernatural forces and evils long forgotten are at work beneath the city streets, and when they burst forth from below, Chevaire becomes a living nightmare beyond its citizens’ wildest imaginings. As the world around them twists and turns, Brunois, Rana, Auroka, and Brioche are swept up in its surge to a threshold—to a time and a place where they must decide if their past will define their future or if they can aspire to something greater and stop the chaos. Marlebonne Tales is a series of books chronicling the lives of Animals living in the Kingdom of Marlebonne--a post-apocalyptic, steampunk world where colorful characters abound, the fantastic is frequent, and anything is possible.
