We Come with Vengeance by H.G. Muralee
Speculative Fiction/ Steampunk Sci-Fi
The war has stretched on for twenty years, and the soldiers, civilians, and nobles are exhausted. Towns grow more desolate while war technology continues to advance, leaving the rest of Kaier behind.
Felix—heir to House Leigh-Van—harbors resentment for the war that has claimed his sister’s life and his father’s ethics. Regardless, he follows his orders and is content to remain equal among his fellow soldiers.
When a routine stop for repairs puts Felix at the epicenter of a brutal attack impacting civilians rather than soldiers, he struggles to continue separating his ethics from his duty. He’s privately ambivalent but publicly supportive of his uncle—the king—when whispers of an underground rebellion start to circulate. The rebellion is gaining traction and could soon make a serious play at ending the war.
But when even the tactics of the resistance begin claiming lives as quickly as the war itself, Felix starts to wonder who will survive to see the peace they’re fighting for.
I want to start by saying that I really enjoy steampunk, and I have found that I am very picky with it. I blame Gail Carriger and Melanie Karsak for this because even though their books are in steampunk worlds, the stories are told in such a way that it does not rely solely on the steampunk factors. I guess what I’m saying is they have a story beyond the technology. I am so excited to say that this is another author that I can add to this list. I appreciate the author including content warnings and a pronunciation guide in the beginning of the book. The list of content warnings is long. She really took care making this list so nothing was missed. I found myself immersed in this story, it really is a good mix of steampunk technology and political fantasy. The characters are really well written, and I found myself invested in them quicker than I would have expected.
I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to what the author writes in the future.
H.G. Muralee was born and raised in North Carolina. She graduated from Western Carolina University with a degree in Criminal Justice and works as a paralegal. When she isn’t writing, she’s reading far too many books, watching The Great British Baking Show, learning her husband’s native language, and playing with her dog, Oliver.
