If you liked the last book, you'll love the second one. It's darker, deadlier and with even more insane steampunk action.

Here 's the blurb for the new book!

Thomas Riley and Cynthia Basset's adventures in their steampunk world have turned down a dark path. After an assassination attempt, the West Canvian heroes receive a message from a mysterious woman about the whereabouts of Cynthia's missing suitor and famous sky pirate, Sam Burges.

Cynthia insists on pursuing the lead despite great risk and they take off with a rogue colonial sky pirate and his eclectic crew to find the man that she loves. On their journey, Thomas and Cynthia learn that Sam has joined with their enemies, the Lemurians, under the supervision of the mad man, Doctor Wolfgang Gerhard. To make matters worse, Sam is in a commanding position on board the secret airship, The Maelstrom, that has the ability to control the weather in a most nefarious way.
Thomas and Cynthia's loyalty to their country and to each other are laid on the line in this steampunk tale of love, loss and war.

Praise for Thomas Riley and the Maelstrom:

"Grab your goggles and strap in for a (steam-powered) roller-coaster ride! Nick Valentino has done it again!"

- Jon Klement, Host of DragonTalk Radio

"Gadgets, gizmos, airships and automatons; the essentials of what a good steampunk novel needs and Nick Valentino does not skimp on any of them! Once again we follow Thomas Riley through murder, mayhem and plot with the valiant Cynthia Basset by his side. Thomas Riley and the Maelstrom is a rousing tale; Steampunk enthusiasts will be clamoring for more"

- Diana Vick, Vice Chair of Steamcon
