An engineer accidentally rediscovers magic. And overturns the world in the process.
The priestesses, queens, and Huntresses of Antalia banished magic when their people fled their old homeland, chased by mages and crippled by disease, both ills unleashed by “foolish, impatient men.” Men remain second class citizens, aware of their weaknesses: impulsive, emotional, flawed. Instead of magic, Antalia uses technology, steam power and hydraulics.
And then a neighbor-feud turns deadly, triggering a series of events that could topple all that the people of Antalia thought they knew. For the magic never left, and looms ever larger, on the borders, and in the very land itself.
The only hope to stave off disaster comes with a few, very few men and women who can learn

Laura Montgomery’s new book Out of the Dell is now available on Kindle.
On the planet Nwwwlf, in the lost colony of First Landing, the original settlers carved out one sylvan valley, a lone outpost where humans flourish. But their bright hopes and best intentions devolved over centuries into a rude replica of medieval feudalism.
Gilead Tan, who had been held captive for centuries in his sleeping cell, survived treachery and pain to free a small group of sleepers. But he and his friends now face the perils of life outside First Landing’s sanctuary–without their powered armor, their tools and technology, or anything else they need save for a few chickens.
Gilead must establish a safehold for his crew, but the alien environment does not welcome them and petty bickering threatens their meager resources. He hopes that a trace of smoke – spotted above a distant ridge – beckons them to a better place.
