Blog Tour: Bronze Gods by A.A. Aguirre ~win a signed copy


The Criminal Investigation Division of the great city of Dorstaad doesn't normally allow just anyone access to their case files, but after several days of aggressive negotiations (bribery may or may not have been involved), a group of curious bloggers, myself included, were allowed to rummage through some of the more peculiar cases that their top inspectors, Janus Mikani and Celeste Ritsuko handled. While we were there, mostly unsupervised, we poked around more than was strictly permissible and found some of their personal correspondence as well. We then decided we needed to share this information and Maja @ the Nocturnal Library organized this tour. If you've been following then you've been privy to our findings and today I am going to share the last bit of dirt information we obtained:

Hy Breasil is grimmer than it used to be. Before the Architect closed the door, there were regular crossings, and a great war decimated both humans and Ferishers. The native fae who refused to treat with the invaders faded; their bodies withered and died, stranding them as hungry, angry spirits that haunt the countryside. That means there’s always trouble brewing in Dorstaad. Janus Mikani and Celeste Ritsuko work for the Criminal Investigation Department, keeping citizens safe from things that go bump in the night. He’s a hardboiled cynic with an uncanny sixth sense; she’s determined to justify her promotion as the first female detective in her division. Together, they’re trying to keep a black tide from drowning the city. But when the second body surfaces, murdered with the same type of infernal device, the entire CID must face the truth. There’s a madman on the loose, twining magic and blood… and only Mikani and Ritsuko can unravel the intricate, lethal conspiracy before the Royale killer completes his macabre plan, unleashing old, forbidden magic on an unsuspecting populace. If the maniac succeeds, it could mean the end of everything…



About the Author 
A.A. Aguirre is the pseudonym for Ann & Andres Aguirre, a husband-wife writing team. She specializes in compelling characters; he excels at meticulous worldbuilding. By day, she's a USA Today bestselling novelist, and he is a pharmaceuticals tycoon.  Born in Mexico, Andres spent his early years traveling and getting in trouble everywhere else. Along the way, he got a degree from Pepperdine in economics and international business. Ann was born in the Midwest and has a degree in English Literature from Ball State. She's traveled less than Andres and gotten into less trouble, but scaling Macchu Pichu should count for something, right? Now settled, if not fully domesticated, Andres lives with his love, Ann, their fantastic kids, one whiny cat, and two wistful dogs.

The notes and memos are such a fun way to give a sneak peak
of the characters and setting for the Apparatus Infernum series. I love the
Sirantha Jax series and I'm a big UF and steampunk fan. I'm really looking
forward to diving into the Apparatus Infernum world. Thanks for the sharing
with us and for the great giveaway!

The cover, it's Ann and Andres, it's steampunk, there's a tiny touch of romance, the plot sounds insanely good, it's Ann and Andres, I love that the characters ethnicity is unusual. I raced out and bought the ebook after Heidi's review, but I'd love a signed copy for my Preciousssss shelf. ;)
