A Steampunk Fable & a Giveaway!


by Edie Melson @EdieMelson


Today, my new Steampunk novel is free on kindle. 

Here's what readers are saying:

"A superb retelling of Robin Hood--steampunk style! Edie brings the beloved characters to life in a whole new way that will keep readers feverishly turning the pages to find out what happens next. I can't wait for the next in the series!"

"A steampunk fable at its finest. Melson is a master craftsman in her action-packed spin with Maid Marion and Robin Hood at the helm."

"Edie Melson's steampunk adventure kept me turning pages long after I should have called my lady's maid to help me prepare for dinner. There wasn't enough tea in all of England to settle my nerves as Marion and Robin first matched wits with each other and then joined forces to stop a horrific evil from taking over the land. Maiden of Iron is a must-read for fans of the steampunk genre and a perfect first foray for those new to it."

Maiden of Iron
Marion Ravenswood’s brother is killed in a duel fighting for her honor. Their father, the Engineering Guildmaster, withdraws and refuses to speak with anyone.

Marion must now save the guild’s children and reclaim the family honor. She dons the persona of the Maiden of Iron to right wrongs not of her making.

But will a chance encounter with the prince of thieves be an answered prayer, or will he just steal her heart and abandon them all?

    Thanks very much for your vision--presenting a fine story in the Robin Hood / Steampunk style. A couple of my grandchildren are going to love the story---I'm passing it on to them.

    1. Amanda, I definitely would. It’s very clean (2 chaste kisses) and while it’s not a Christian book, it follows the Christian world view. Blessings, E
