Grab your pilot’s goggles and your twin .45s, and get ready for adventure, because the wait is over! Assassins of the Lost Kingdom is now available at Amazon.com. Set in the retro pulp universe of Airship Daedalus, Assassins of the Lost Kingdom takes the crew of the Daedalus around the world and into new danger in their first novel-length adventure.
July, 1926 finds ace pilot Jack McGraw and scientist Dorothy “Doc” Starr, hot on the trail of evil agents murdering prominent captains of industry—a trail that leads them to face an old enemy they thought vanquished. With the backing of Thomas Edison’s A.E.G.I.S. foundation, Jack and Doc use their light reconnaissance airship Daedalus to travel to the Himalayas, where a deeper mystery unfolds. Together with their crewmates, suave English radioman Edward “Duke” Willis, curmudgeonly Bronx mechanic Carl “Rivets” Holloway and laconic Cherokee sharpshooter Charlie “Deadeye” Dalton, they delve into local customs and ancient lore surrounding the “Eye of the World”, a hidden kingdom in the heart of the mountains known as Shambala, where the only antidote to the world’s deadliest poison still grows wild.
Join Jack and Doc and the crew as they chase the murderous assassins of the Silver Star across Manhattan and take on evil at the head of an army of tommy gun packing mobsters. Fly over the deep Himalayas, into danger and intrigue. And discover a secret world the promises miracles, but also horrible danger if it falls into the grip of evil.
Jeffrey Cook, author of the Dawn of Steam trilogy says, “Airship Daedalus: Assassins of the Lost Kingdom has everything you’d hope for in a pulp adventure. Crafted in the mold of its predecessors from the 1920s, the book has a bit of everything. Adventure, intrigue, danger—and most of all, atmosphere. I’d recommend it to fans looking for hints of late-era steampunk, 1920s pulp adventures, Indiana Jones, or just people looking for a fun, fast adventure.”
Based on the Airship Daedalus retro pulp comic strip by Todd Downing and Brian Beardsley, Assassins of the Lost Kingdom is packed with mobsters, mad science, secret societies, occult threats, sky-high aerial adventure, and all the two-fisted heroism you need to take down evil.
