By: PH Solomon
Sub-Genre: Dragons & Mythical Creatures, Urban Fantasy, Gaslamp, Steampunk
Meet Manny, an arch-mage who can handle anything. Unless he’s cursed, lost his job and facing a hidden nemesis. Dangers circle like vultures. Nothing an arch-mage can’t handle. Unless the curse limits how much magic he can use or kills him outright. Can Manny survive long enough to break his curse? Or will the arch-mage’s mysterious foe escape him?
Arch-mage Manny Mandeheim fell under a curse, watched his fiancé die, and then lost his job as a spy. What’s an unemployed arch-mage to do? Start his own magical investigation service while he works to clear his good name and avenge his lost love.
With his very un-magical partner, Wish Ackford, Manny discovers the menace of a conspiracy looming behind his curse. But the limitations from the hex leave him at a distinct disadvantage as he and Wish investigate.
Assassins lurk at every corner or in every tram car. The threat of a dangerous mastermind with murky intentions lingers just out of sight. A questionable source offers the hint of a secret order hounding Manny’s footsteps. A murder leads to a wrenching discovery.

Meet PH Solomon:
I’m P. H. Solomon a Best Selling Author and live in the greater Birmingham, AL area. I strongly dislike yard work and sanding the deck rail. However, I perform such duties to maintain a nice home for my loved ones as well as the family’s German Shepherds. In my spare time, I ride herd as a Computer Whisperer on large computers called servers (harmonica not required). I grew up with a love of books including fantasy. Always interested in odd details, history, and the world around me, I found an outlet in writing where I mix a wide range of interests from the regular world, history, and anthropology into my fantasy books. My epic fantasy series, The Bow of Hart Saga, brings a fresh viewpoint to the genre where magic, myth, and mysticism mingle. Described by readers as a “mixture of the classic fantasy past with new ideas.” Additionally, I enjoy reading, running, most sports, and fantasy football.

Deception: Wahrheit Book 3 on Kickstarter
Bring Black Sleeve to Life!
The First Book of a New Flintlock Fantasy Series
WAHRHEIT is a huge, sprawling epic fantasy that features political intrigue, assassinations, mystery, adventure, battles, a little bit of fun, and yes, even dragons. It’s my take on those incredible stories that captured my imagination and took me on a ride I’d never forget. It’s packed full of colorful characters that fans love, faced with incredible adversity that they fight to overcome, sometimes successfully, sometimes not. I hope this series goes down as one you remember forever.
The Truth is a weak thing. It has no power. The only power the Truth holds is the power we grant it.
For six hundred years, the kingdom of Wahrheit was ruled by an unbroken line. It rose on a wave of technology and magic and stood alone—a bastion of stability built on pillars of economic and military might. The nation and her people thrived due to the strength of soldiers and the protection of dragons.
But the line has ended—the king is dead.
Noble houses vie to carve out their own domains. Foreign armies march across Wahrheit’s soil for the first time in memory. Without leadership, the king’s army watches helplessly. The fae, a source of enchantment and treachery, work unseen to secure their share of Wahrheit’s blood. And far beyond the kingdom’s borders, a growing threat looms—an empire built to right a bitter wrong.
Only a small band of conspirators stand between the kingdom and chaos: Otto Tilly, captain of the king’s Dragon Knights, the steel fist that shields the weak. Gerhard Fisher, a spy and assassin, who owes more than his life to the former king. Ilse Brinke, the quartermaster, the keeper of the kingdom’s secrets and magic. The wizard, an ancient soul who understands the cost of failure. And by fortune’s curse or fortune’s favor, two orphans from the growing war must carry the kingdom forward. As has always been, the burden of the future lies across the shoulders of the young.
