Read full description of the books:
Cyrus Darian and the Ghastly Horde. In this eagerly awaited sequel to the Victorian Steampunk Society Best Novel of 2011 our favourite anti-hero is back! And this time he's acquired an army of adoring followers from the netherworld. Share his adventures as he struggles to extricate himself using Steampunk technology and a tiny dose of the occult.
"The only thing stopping Cyrus Darian from being a true hero is himself. The idea that he might possibly be a good person and a trustworthy friend, who cares about anyone other than himself terrifies him. It's so obvious in the effort he makes to sabotage his relationships with his companions. When one finds oneself attempting to psychoanalise a fictional character in a book in this way, the author must be doing something right. There is a lot more to be discovered about Cyrus Darian and his motivations. I can't wait!" David Brzeski reviewing for the British Fantasy Society

Read information about the authorRaven Dane is an award-winning author of steampunk, dark fantasy, alternative history and horror fiction. Her first novels were in the critically acclaimed Legacy of the Dark Kind series;
Blood Tears, Blood Lament, Blood Alliance. These are dark fantasy/alternative history/SF novels about a non human race of vampires who most definitely do not sparkle!
In 2009, Endaxi Press launched The Unwise Woman of Fuggis Mire, Raven's scurrilous and most definitely adult spoof of all things High Fantasy. A fairy tale for grown ups with a sense of humour.
Endaxi also published Raven's first steampunk novel. Cyrus Darian and the Technomicron was voted best Steampunk Novel in 2012 and the sequel Cyrus Darian and the Ghastly Horde was published in the same year.
Published by Telos Moonrise in 2013 , Raven's first book of short stories was launched at The Asylum Weekend, Europe's biggest steampunk festival. Absinthe and Arsenic is a collection of spooky Victorian and steampunk tales echoing her fascination for gas lit, cobbled streets, the rattle of hansom cabs in the fog and the rustle of silk bustles...and ghosts !
Endaxi Press have now taken over and produced beautiful new, re-edited paperback editions of Blood Tears and Blood Lament and Blood Alliance.
All Raven Dane's books are available to order from all good book shops, on line and as ebooks on Kindle.
Raven also has many short stories published in mainly horror anthologies. She is a proud contributor to Full Fathom Forty, an anthology of great short stories in celebration of the British Fantasy Society's fortieth anniversary.
Raven recently has been the first author signed with a new imprint of Telos Publishing. Called Telos Moonrise, they have released her well received collection of Victorian and steampunk ghost stories, entitled Absinth and Arsenic. Also available as an ebook and paperback.
Raven has been included on a list of top women horror writers...a great honour.
NEWSFLASH 2 !!!
Raven's latest novel Death's Dark Wings, published by Telos was launched at Eastercon in 2015. It is a supernatural/alternative history novel centered around the events leading up to the Norman Conquest. With pagan magic, Welsh monsters and steam powered weapons, 1066 was never like this!
