Tristan Gareth Smyth, the future Earl of Pensees, has spent his life in a wheelchair raised by the hired help of his grandfather and his only friend, Tabitha. Forced to be aided by house servants, Gareth lives a solitary life, until one day something extraordinary happens. While watching the children playing at the park, he meets a young girl who catches his eye, then climbs a tall tree and promptly falls out. Feeling helpless, Gareth lunges forward from his chair only to find that he can fly, to catch her.
This is only the tip of the grand mystery surrounding Gareth, his past and his future. With the help of Jessamine, a friend of Tabitha’s does his hard demeanor crack, but not without reluctance. The three of their lives are interconnected in ways that you can never imagine.
This story will grab ahold of your attention and run it through the emotional ringer. You will love to hate Gareth….initially. An amazing blend of steampunk/sci-fi and romance, the authors have created an enchanting word for us to visit. The characters have depth that will make you love them.
