Book Four of the Steam Empire Chronicles
The Steam Empire Chronicles reaches a dangerous tipping point, as heated rivalries and internal conflicts boil over, leaving the empire weak and shattered into three factions.
Emperor Hadrian Appius is dead, and the man responsible is his own brother. Unable to prevent the assassination in IRON TRIBUNE, Senatora Octavia and her allies flee Rome, leaving the smoldering capital behind them, determined to fight on against their rebellious countrymen. But with reluctant allies and provinces declaring neutrality, they are hard pressed to rally loyalists to their side.
In the east, rightful heir-to-the-throne Constantine Appius faces disaster at every turn, his forces stretched thin against invading Mongols and rebel Romans alike. With the help of new friends and old, a desperate plan is formed. But will it be enough to save the Empire and the throne in STEEL PRAETORIAN?
What could be better than steampunk Romans? Steampunk Romans in a ('nother civil war) war with Mongolian Empire that (spoilers) starts a civil war in said empire? Ottalini writes a beautiful world 😁
