The Deadliest Sin: A Crispin Guest Mystery By Jeri Westerson: Review/Giveaway/Interview

by Kathleen Costa


It’s August, and the heat of the summer exacerbates the heat of emotions, so Crispin is confidant a new tracking job will soon find him. Enjoying an ale with his apprentice, his prediction comes true with the appearance of a young boy, “You’re that Tracker they talk of, aren’t you?” Saint Frideswide Priory’s Lady Prioress is distressed by the recent deaths by “misadventure” at the priory. First, their apothecary died suddenly of fever, then, days later, two nuns died under suspicious and gruesome circumstances.

Library of the Damned: Jeri Westerson’s Steampunk Trilogy Comes to a Close

Well, I hoped The Enchanter Chronicles wouldn’t end so soon. [Sigh] Anyway, grab your corsets, boot hooks, and helmets to enjoy this last foray into the magical world of Leopold Kazmer, Mingli Zhao, assorted magical-mechanical creatures, plus so many more punkish devices. Enjoy that Library of the Damned (2021) has freshness and a rich atmosphere of fun despite its serious threats and dark, turgid machinations. Prepare to learn too about how Leopold’s religious background is inextricably linked to the heart of all the novels—one of my favorite devices.

Spiteful Bones: A Crispin Guest Medieval Noir Mystery By Jeri Westerson: Review/Giveaway

by Kathleen Costa


It’s the late fourteenth century London, and Crispin Guest is dealing with the consequences of his treasonous actions against Richard II. He has his head and entrails intact, but the loss of his rank, his position, his fiancée, his friends, and all support to make a living leave little for which to be thankful. However, he does have his wits on which in the past he has relied, if only he had a plan to use them to survive on the city’s mean streets.

& Jeri Westerson


I grew fond of Leopold Kazmer, The Great Enchanter, in his first adventure, The Daemon Device (2019), where he battled the encroaching demonic takeover of steampunk Victorian London and won. Of course, he had help, both natural and supernatural, and I hoped that all his cohorts and a few more would return when I learned the second in Jeri Westerson’s Enchanter Chronicles was coming.
