Product Description

Product Description

Tales from the Archives are short stories set in the world of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences. They explore events mentioned in the novels, characters seen and unseen and may include novel teasers of things to come.

This volume includes:

From Paris with Regret by Starla Huchton- On assignment in the City of Light, Ministry agents Eliza D. Braun and Harrison Thorne chase down a murderer condemning descendants of a royal bloodline to a horrific death.

Hanuman's Gift by Helen E H Madden- Deep in the Archives, Augustus Whitby toils through his duties in the Archives, dreaming up romantic stories far more plausible than the supposed “investigations” of the field agents. A story from Agent Harrison Thorne and an unassuming artifact from his recent case, however, proves much to Whitby’s chagrin that there are some truths that are far stranger than fiction.

The Sun Never Sets by Val Griswold-Ford- Agent Isaac Martin receives a note, imploring him to investigate the nearly completed clock tower at the Palace at Westminster. He and his partner, Agent Andrew Kensington, start looking into the construction and uncover unanswered questions concerning this new landmark’s creators.

The Precarious Child by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris- The street urchins that will one day be called the Ministry Seven, have a task from Agent Harrison Thorne. It seems simple enough, however their leader Miss Verity Fitzroy discovers that a surprise from her past is tangled up with this mysterious man which leads to a very precarious situation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steampunk Peculiar Occurrences 25 Aug 2012
By Artemis - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
4 short stories:

From Paris with Regret by Starla Huchton- Sort of a 3 1/2 - 4 star story. I like that Eliza Braun and Agent Thorn's relationship is further explained for those of us who've read the Peculiar Occurrences novels. The plot line for this story is that an artifact must be causing deaths from poisoning because victims should have shown symptoms over a period of time rather than succumbing immediately. Interesting idea and solution, but not a page turner.

Hanuman's Gift by Helen E H Madden- 5 star story. CREEPY! The Monkey's paw explained and with a few twists.

The Sun Never Sets by Val Griswold-Ford- 3 1/2 - 4 star story. More of a horror tale than steampunk, but clockwork is involved and it's set in the Victorian era, so...okay.

The Precarious Child by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris- 4 -5 star story - Main character, Verity, who is among the oldest of the street urchins in the Eliza Braun novels, is introduced in greater depth. Verity is an intelligent and talented young heroine. She intuitively understands gadgets, but does not share with anyone that she has this ability. I'd like to see a novel developed around her.

I liked this installment much better than the last one. The stories were a lot more engaging. Especially the last story. Verify reminded me of a younger Eliza
