Check out this spoiler-free review from The Arched Doorway. It's pretty amazing when someone enjoys your work, and this review put my jaw on the floor in the best possible way.
The first book in a new steampunk trilogy by Eric R. Asher, Steamborn was an exciting and fast-paced read, and I honestly can’t remember the last time I had that much fun reading a book. With the release of Jack Campbell and Jim Butchers new steampunk books this year I didn’t think anything else would really meet the bar they set, but Steamborn is as good as, if not better than either of them. I can’t count the number of times I found myself on my feet pacing around my room — which is something I do when I am really amped up by the book I am reading.
Most books I’ve read with war torn or post apocalyptic worlds are much too dark and depressing for my liking, but
It's finally here! I'm so happy to be sharing the covers for all three Steamborn books. For a limited time, you can pre-order the first book on iBooks at the exclusive discounted price of only 99¢.

Steamborn, Book One
Jacob, a tinker's apprentice and sometime thief, has lived his entire life in the mountain city of Ancora, protected by the city walls. These towering barriers keep the Deadlands creatures at bay, but the monsters move higher into the peaks every year. More and more, they breach the defenses of the Lowlands while the Highlands rest easy.
A swarm overruns the walls and wreaks utter devastation on the Lowlands. Charles, the old tinker, suspects the attack may not be natural. With help from Jacob's closest friend, Alice, and Samuel, one of the city's elite spider knights, Jacob and Charles will uncover a terrible darkness at the heart of their city.
