hello love your book
Hello! Thank you!
Thank you! Me neither.
Hey, hey Devon Monk… I love your books… What is this one about? I’m a huge fan of Patricia Briggs and Jim Butcher and my theory is, if authors that I love are commenting on a book, I would most likely love that book… So I’m excited to read this one… Are we going to get excerpts soon??? I want to know more….!!!
I’m putting up the back cover blurb tonight. As soon as I get the thumbs up from my editor, I’ll see if I can post a blurb.
Yay, I love Steampunk (especially steampunk romance) and I’m always excited to discover new books in this genre. The cover of “Dead Iron” looks fantastic.
I LOVE the cover! Artist is Cliff Nielsen. He does fabulous work!
Can’t wait to read this series. I am a fan of Allie Beck but I would love to indulge in other characters too Any excerpt on this one yet?
As soon as my editor gives me the ok on the revisions, I’ll try to get and excerpt up. But I’m posting the back cover blurb now.
[...] Age of Steam [...]
Yes! I love paranormal mixing with steampunk. Sounds fantastic!
Thank you, Abigail!! I had a blast writing it! I hope you’ll like it!!
Bumped into this by accident(just love when that happens)on Amazon and got the anticipatory tingles! I have really enjoyed the Magic series and look forward to the new! “blood sweat and gears”,love it…
Thank you! Hope you enjoy it when you get your hands on it!
Reading the latest Allie Beckstrom book and I had to say that I am really excited to read your new series! Steampunk and a Paranormal mix is just fantastic and I cant wait to read it.
Oh, thank you! I hope you like it when you get a chance to read it.
I just picked Dead Iron up today. I have only read the first few pages and I am already enjoying it. Thanks for a great book. Is it going to be a series or a stand alone?
So glad you’re liking it so far! Right now there will be two books in this series with a possibility for more.
Hi there. I think I just fell in love with that wolfie of yours *G* Downloaded the Kindle version and devoured it within 2 days. Can’t wait for the 2nd book in your new series. That mix between steampunk and magic is absolutely fascinating and the characters have the depth it requires to bring them to life if you know what I mean. I usually have a weak spot for the bad guy but not in this case. I felt the strong urge to carve LeFels heart out with a teaspoon *G*
Also downloaded the first Allie Beckstrom novel last night and halfway through already. I’m intrigued by the implications of using magic and like the characters so I will download the rest as well. Though I must say I like the Steampunk setting better as it’s rougher and more down to earth. Besides werewolves are just too cool.
Yay, some Cedar love! And you’re right, the Allie books and the Cedar books are really two different sorts of worlds, but I have a ridiculous amount of fun writing in both worlds.
Just finished your book ‘Dead Iron- Age of Steam’ I cannot wait until the next installment. Just found your work and so far I am loving it.
Thank you! I’m working on book 2 right now, and I just have to say I am giddy with the fun of it!
I must echo the sentiments of the others on this page: blending steampunk and paranormal elements makes for a truly savory mix. It’s been a long time since I picked up a book that drew me in so strongly; I was loathe to put it down for even such things as going to work or having a bite to eat. This is an amazing book, and I will keep a close eye on your future endeavors. Now I’m off to start the Allie Beckstrom series….
Thank you so much! I love writing in Cedar’s world. Heck, I love writing in Allie’s world too!
love. love love this book. i found dead iron by happen-stance and gladly list it as my favorite! is this going to be a series???
Having just finished the excellent Dead Iron I just wanted to comment on a few things. The blending of the various supernatural types you have is smoothly and expertly done. Obviously, even though you have expressed at this point only one redux I can see the opportunity for many avenues of reading enjoyment thru the various characters as each undergoes his or her own exploration of their lives and origination; much of which is yet to be known.
The combination of western and supernatural leaves you open to a vast amount of lore on both sides also yet unexplored for your characters. with your complement moving East towards a more civilized country some may find themselves fish out of water where others are accustomed to more structure and have left it without regret.
The Madder brothers are aptly named. Unbridled and uniquely chldlike in their abandonment. They should be a force to reckon with but seem restrained by some as yet unknown set of rules to be discovered.
Rose is a budding force to be seen in its entirety. And I admire her resolve, spunk and independence.
Ceder and Wil. So much there and so little time.
Kk. Done with that one, next seven of them please?
Lol! Glad you liked the book!!
I just finished Dead Iron and all I have to say is please-oh-please come out with a sequel soon. It’s been all of five minutes since I finished and already I’m itching to read more. This book is absolutely fantastic and I’m thrilled that I picked it up and started it. Thank you!!!!
I just wanted to take the time to tell you how awsome your books are. Ive read all of them and cant get enough. you are so good at keeping the reader on the edge of there seat. Thank you for being awsome
Have read all your Allie Beckstrom books!! Love your new book Dead Iron. You just keep getting better and better!!!
I loved it can’t wait to read the new one when its finished I read it in 2the days I couldn’t put it down

Found this book at Borders when it was going under. Loved the cover, love Steam punk so I grabbed it. I was blown away! We run a steam punk Role Playing Game with my children and their geeky friends (Using modified pathfinder) and so many of the ideas in this book run parallel to our game that I am going to require all the players to get a copy! I am so hoping you continue this tale! I swear by Glim and God I will buy the next book the second it hits the shelf!
Just thought I would add my own congrats on this wonderful series, read the first book awhile back, but I am eager to continue down the very interesting and wonderful path you are leading us on. Keep up the great story, I anticipate a wonderful relationship.
I just finished your book Dead Iron. I really enjoyed the plot and Strange elements. I’m looking forward to any more books with Cedar Hunt!
I am right in the middle of Dead Iron and I am already fiending for the next one. Can’t wait for Tin Swift! Keep it up, this is a really cool niche you’ve made for yourself. Great writing style too, thanks for the good read

Love the Age of Steam series!!! The characters are fantastic and the story is amazing (but from all the buzz, I’m sure you’ve heard all this before). You have become one of my favorite authors and I can’t wait for the next book.

The last fan mail I sent to an author was to Andre Norton, back in about 1959 or 60, when I was a young man in college. I was an avid reader of Sci-Fi back then & for many years beyond. I moved on more to Fantasy & then Urban Fantasy as well.
I discovered the first Allie Beckstrom novel awhile back & went on to enjoy the series. Now, with the Age of Steam stories, you have become my most favorite author since Andre Norton! I read Dead Iron & now I’m halfway through Tin Swift. Your writing is superb. Your characters are fantastic & the stories reach out & pull you right in! Keep them coming & I’ll keep reading them!
Just had to take a break from “Tin Swift” to let you know the world and characters you have created for the Age of Steam series are among the best I have ever experienced.
I finished Tin Swift in two days and LOVED it, I like the way the story is moving and the addition of Lee Hink has been a good mix. (IMO)
I have read the Magic series and love it! Have also started the Age of Steam series and have enjoyed those too. When will the next Age of Steam book be out? I have others “hooked” on your writing as well. You rock Ms. Monk!
I’ve been a Steampunk fan since forever, and you wrote an excellent couple of novels here. Cedar is well developed and even the minor characters are deep and faceted. Simply one of the best Steampunk books I’ve read ever.
Are you currently in the process of writing the third? I must have more!!
I started with Tin Swift because of the steam punk. I didn’t know anything about it. Was about to put it down when the witch and werewolf started to materialize. But I figure since I bought it, I might as well finish it. The steam punk elements kept me reading despite the werewolf. You gave just the right mix to keep me reading. However, there is too much gore. You’d have a series I could recommend to my friends if you had cut out the gore.
I adore this series! Really looking forward to book three.
P.S. I loved the gory bits! (I tend to lean that direction in my own writing.)
Finally had time to myself to do a little reading, finished the second book in record time and excited to see the third coming soon! Love the new steampunk series! Totally Love the Magic series too! I have told all my friends and family about your books and they ask if they can borrow them.(I let them borrow the first book and make them go buy the rest) it’s not hard to get them hooked Glad I work where I do or I would have never met your biggest fan and been introduced to your great works. Keep it up, I’m looking forward to many more years of great stories. I’ll catch up with you at Powells sometime
Just finished Tin Swift. Really loving this series. Thank you so much for writing it! Can’t wait for July to get here.
I would just like to say that i just recently started into the age of steam series. An let mejust say, wow. Simply wow. The imagination put into this story is amazing, the writing style is very unique, and the setting is perfect. I was looking forsomething original, action filled with a bit of mystery. And i wanted something steampunk. And, you delivered! I love everything about it. I cant get enogh of it! Keep up the amazing work! I just wish i could put everything i admire about the story in this one comment, but i cant find the words to say. keep it up!
Love the series! I need to now if there is a fourth book coming and I need the answer to be YES!
I love, love, love this series! I hope there will be more to come. If so, I can hardly wait!
[…] Dead Iron is a great way to introduce yourself to the steampunk genre: fast paced, intriguing, mysterious characters; it is an alternative look at the settling of the West and the coming of the railroad.
