Those are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to actions some will take to protect their interests in aether-oil, the coveted substance that fuels the city of Huile.

As both veteran and private investigator, Marcel Talwar knows this firsthand, and he likes to think he'd never participate in such things. However, that naive idea comes to a crashing end when he takes on a new case that quickly shatters his worldview.

A trail of evidence points to someone in Marcel's inner circle who's using him as a pawn to conduct grisly experiments-experiments that could lead to genocide.

Now, Marcel is more determined than ever to discover who's pulling the strings to this sinister plot. But the further he gets, the larger the target on his back becomes, and it's not long before Marcel has to ask himself how much and how many he's willing to sacrifice to get to the truth.

Reviews for The Sightless City

First Place in the OZMA BOOK AWARDS 2019 (Fantasy) The Sightless City is like nothing I've ever seen. Fantasy, dieselpunk, and sci-fi. Past, present, and future -- all at once. Step inside and never leave. - Gary Goldman, screenwriter for Big Trouble in Little China (1986) and Total Recall (1990) Take one step into The Sightless City and you're pulled into a crackling adventure of intrigue, danger and mystery until the very last page. Lemelson builds an intricate steampunk fantasy world and sets it ablaze with haunting characters and deep moral questions. It's a thrilling debut! - Amanda Silver, screenwriter for Rise of the Planet of Apes (2011), Jurassic World (2015) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) With one foot in the seemingly magical and the other in SF, The Sightless City hits that same sweet spot that Tamsyn Muir mines so successfully in Gideon the Ninth. Lemelson revives and updates the gestures of science fantasy to make it a truly 21st century form. Funny, dark, irreverent, and endlessly entertaining, The Sightless City is a rustpunk wonder and a first-rate debut. - Brian Evanson, award-winning author of Song for the Unraveling of the World and The Warren Lemelson melds industrial revolution with powerful magic; and, like all revolutions, this one isn't a tea party. - Dave Higgins, author of Origin and Seven Stones
