What Is That Self-Same Metal?
Now I know you’re wondering, “Brittany, what is this book even about?” Don’t worry, I got you.
Sixteen-year-old Joan Sands creates and maintains the stage blades for William Shakespeare’s acting company, the King’s Men, using her magical ability to control metal—a power gifted by the Orisha, Ogun.
Joan and her family have always been aware of the Fae’s presence within London society—subtle, peaceful, and marked by the faint glow that only those blessed by the Orisha can see. When England’s new king fails to uphold the pact between his realm and theirs, brutal attacks forewarn the approach of a malevolent presence. After Joan wounds a powerful Fae and saves the son of a cruel lord, she finds herself thrown into the middle of the approaching war between the human and Fae worlds.
Swashbuckling, romantic, and full of the sights and sounds of Shakespeare’s London, That Self-Same Metal delivers an unforgettable story—and a heroine unlike any other.
Want to Get It Now? Bet.
