It is New Year's Eve, 1875. In this humorously told Steampunk tale, adventure-prone Ichabod Temperance and his lovely sweetheart, Miss Persephone Plumtartt, once again find themselves swept up into a whirlwind of misadventure and international catastrophe. The entire world totters on the brink of war, as various nations develop arsenals of dreadful power. It seems as though every nation on Earth lusts for Empire. A sinister plot boils to change the course of human history. Along with a remarkable cast of characters, including sapient animals and clockwork men, our heroes find themselves plunged into unimaginable peril!

A World of InTemperanceMy Review
A World of InTemperance by Ichabod Temperance

Sit back and relax, take a minute, clear your head, ready? Because this is the last time you will be sitting still once Ichabod Temperance takes control in A World of InTemperance a whirlwind of action, fun and peril! Think Maxwell Smart and Agent 99 in the Steampunk era! (Google the reference, youngins) The ever lovable Ichabod and the brilliantly beautiful and brave Persephone Plumtartt are back and once again in the thick of trouble as they fight the good fight against global war, the quest for world domination and pretty much evil in general. This time, they are not alone, picking up unique and useful allies along the way. Sure some require some re-assembly, but the tinkerer in Ichabod is up to the task. The world of Steampunk has no idea how close it came to destruction and if not for Ichabod and Persephone, Bolt and Cogito, to name a few, an entire genre could have been lost! Is someone raising a clockwork army? Can Mr. Temperance and Miss Plumtartt foil this fatal plot? Friends and allies come in strange packages, but never once does the action let up!

Again, author Ichabod Temperance take us back in time, portrays the gentile mannerisms of a good upbringing and bestows on his readers alliteration, humor and fantastical events in rapid-fire pacing! A good sport, Mr. Temperance allows others to help tell the story from different perspectives, adding to that panoramic sense of being in the moment! This is pure adventure entertainment with a fantasy twist! Ichabod Temperance writes from the heart with a sense of humor and a dashing fare that ignites on each page. But, be warned, pay attention, lest you miss a chance to chuckle, gasp or reach for the smelling salts as we are whisked into the jaws of danger and beyond, all in the name of doing the right thing.

  1. Thank you, Dianne.
    You are very kind to give me a chance.
    Even if you had not liked the books, I still very much appreciate that you were nice enough to read them.
    Your reviews are longer and more in depth than any other I have received.
    I am super excited about the upcoming spotlight!
    Splendid Days, my Tome Tender pals!
