(From the publisher):
Eson inherited the steam-power legacy of his family lineage and along with it mysterious abilities, as through the use of ink and paper he funnels the good fortune of others into his own coffers. A young, enigmatic figure who wears his power like a second skin, he's hated by some, feared by others... and lonely. Recovering from a disastrous relationship with a woman of his own kind, he's at his most vulnerable when he meets a young woman who isn't who she claims to be. Wrapping her in his affection, he comes to find himself betrayed, and must defend himself against challenges far too dear.
