Presenting the Rail Legacy by William J. Jackson
Disclosure: This is an author's showcase. There is no promise I have read any book shown here. My wish is to help display independent and lesser known authors. As to whether you may like it, please judge on what is written, the same as you would in a bookstore or street fair. Thanks!
An Unsubstantiated Chamber: Rail Legacy Book 1
Synopsis: Aretha Tyne Astin is a Huntress for a government in the 1880s that kills its superhuman population. In this alternate history, paranormals were once legends. Now, heroism is dead. However, a terrible murder will unite Aretha with an old ally of those heroes, and expose the dark underbelly of this militant America.
A note from the author: What I love most about Chamber is it takes two things that have meant a lot to me, comics and history, and merges them. I love having written not one, but two, unlikeable protagonists who change over the course of the story. While the book can be bleak, it also peels back harsh parts of US history.
