Adalé Whitmore never expected to become involved with an international conspiracy her first day of work. 

After traveling across the continent to seek her fortune, a job as a navigator aboard the beautiful Eagle's Arrow airship seems like a godsend, even if it is offered by a possibly insane captain. That is, until the crew discovers a mysterious device that should not exist hidden in their cargo, a device that people are willing to kill for. Adalé and her new crew join in a deadly race of riddles to discover the truth of the impossible machine before it's too late.

Set in an alternate version of 1887, The Eagle's Arrow takes readers on a journey around a rich steampunk world in a story of mad scientists, aerial libraries, unlikely friends, and just the right amount of tea.

Updates will be slow as I work through some real-life things, but I hope to get back to a regular posting schedule soon.

This story is a collaboration between @Xenoclea (main writer, alternate timeline researcher, real-life mad scientist, lover of top hats) and @illgetthereoneday (main beta-reader, main editor, real-life world traveler, bad idea smasher).
