Staff Reviews

A charming steampunk novel in which our heroine, Ministry Agent Eliza D. Braun ("the brawn") and hero, Archivist Wellington Thornhill Books ("the brains") battle nefarious secret societies bent on world domination all the while engaging in witty repartee and upholding staunch British values.

— From Deborah


Co-authors Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris ingeniously reimagine England's Edwardian Era in Phoenix Rising--a hilarious, rip-roaring steampunk fantasy romp that the voracious fans of New York Times bestseller Gail Carriger will eagerly devour with great relish. In this outrageous, non-stop adventure, Ballantine and Morris introduce us to Agents Books and Braun of the ultra-secret Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences--the most delightful duo of very British evil-bashers since The Avengers, Emma Peel and John Steed. With its malevolent secret societies, earth-shattering conspiracies, breathtaking derring-do, and absolutely wondrous weapons, Phoenix Rising out-Sherlocks Robert Downey, Jr.'s Sherlock Holmes.
