That Self-Same Metal is the debut novel in Williams’s The Forge and Fracture Saga set to be a trilogy with the sequel, Saint Seducing Gold, set to be released later this spring. The saga begins with a powerful and talented craftswoman, Joan Sands. At age 16, she uses her gift from Head Orisha Ogun to manipulate and control metal in order to create and maintain the stage blades for William Shakespeare’s acting company, The King’s men. Part of a family of Orisha-blessed, Joan has always been able to keep tabs on the Fae’s presence in London. Usually, Joan is unaffected by the Fae presence and simply notices the faint glow of their energy moving through the crowds of London streets, but when conflict arises and Joan wounds a powerful Fae to protect a cruel lord’s son, she finds herself in the middle of political and magical tensions that send her in new directions.
Full of intrigue, a dash of romance, and all the fun twists and turns of Joan’s journey, That Self-Same Metal is sure to envelop your attention and draw you into a story both dazzling and dangerous. A perfect weekend read and a new character to follow as the saga continues!
Until next week, Keep reading!
