Book Description

Oct. 4 2013 The Ehrich Weisz Chronicles

2014 Aurora Award nominee in two categories:
      Best English YA Novel, and
      Best Artist for Cover Design

When young Ehrich Weisz — the future illusionist, Harry Houdini — follows his brother, Dash, through a strange portal, he is thrust into an alternate New York where the immigrants aren't just different ethnicities but different species. He finds work in this strange steampunk world as a Demon Hunter, tracking down dangerous otherworldly visitors that threaten the city's safety, while hiding his own foreign origins. A curious medallion, his only clue to finding his brother, leads Ehrich to a mysterious woman caught up in interdimensional intrigue, and he must learn who to trust as he unravels the truth if he ever wants to find his way home.

Reviews:
"Demon Gate is a well-written adventure that creates the very unusual world in which Ehrich finds himself as he searches for his brother. The characters of the alien Dimensionals are fleshed out as are their motivations. There are good and bad on both sides.
"If readers enjoys fast-moving action, and the occasional hiss-worthy villain, with an attractive, but perhaps not quite human, girl from another dimension thrown in, they should relish Demon Gate, a tale of daring-do."
Highly Recommended.
-- CM Magazine

4.0 out of 5 stars Steampunk young Harry Houdini Nov. 21 2013
By Nicole Luiken - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Love this concept: steampunk young Harry Houdini + demons. (Nicola Tesla is also a major character, but has more of a mentor role.) Lots of chase scenes, fisticuffs, daring escapes and misdirection made for a fun plot with short high-action chapters. An interesting setting: an alternate history steampunk New York. I will definitely be on the lookout for book two.

Quibble: The time and place jump between chapter one and chapter two confused me at first. I had to resort to reading the back cover blurb to figure out what was going on.
