An Adventure through Alternative History with a light Steampunk Flavor
Russians Revolutionaries Revolvers ...Really beautiful women
This historical action story has it all Another fast-paced adventure story from C.K. Shackleton. It is 1908 and news reporter Edward Prince is sent to Paris, France to hunt down a certain balding Bolshevik revolutionary who wants to take over the world... er, ahem... he wants all of his worker friends to help him take over the world and then they will be in charge... yeah, right. Needless to say, the meeting with this man doesn't go quite as planned. In fact, it is a disaster. Prince is chased through the streets of Paris and eventually into the arms of a beautiful woman who may or may not have to kill him... if he gets in the way of her mission. Written with love for a much more famous novel that took place in Russia and on a train, C.K. Shackleton punches you in the face over and over again with page-turning prose filled with action and adventure from the early 20th Century
About The Edward Prince Adventure SeriesThe Edward Prince Adventure Series is an ongoing collection of stories that follows the adventures of Canadian-born-turned-American news reporter Edward Prince. In each adventure, Prince encounters various historical characters from the late 19th and early 20th Century, a forgotten era of much progress.
