{SLOW UPDATES}  In an alternate 1913, escalating technology and political unrest have plunged Europe into a cold war on the brink of critical mass.  A knight, his ward, and an ambitious scientist are forced out of their shadowy existences and onto the front lines of an arcane conflict that they never wished to see.

Karl Vasya is an elite Templar knight, sworn to protect the secrets of the Magus families from escaping to the outside world.  He is also charged with protecting Sonya, heiress to one of these arcane bloodlines.  When a breach in security is discovered, both must race against time to prevent the information from making it into the wrong hands.

Doctor Bruce Langley is a genius, but no one is capable of grasping his vision.  After being forced to retire early to a dreary life of unappreciated research, he is approached by a mysterious government agency.  They offer him a chance to take his theories beyond the realm of plausibility, deep into the arcane.  How could he possibly refuse?

Not sure I had told you before, but I find your blurb very strong! I could totally see it on the back of a published book at Indigo and not be surprised.

Like I was saying before I been meaning to read this for a while. Saw the blurb and cold tell that some work has been put into the story.
