Roanoke City: a utopia built upon the pillars of greed and knowledge, ruled under the iron thumb of the Concilium. Only those who stand under the banner of the Bronze Apostate dare to defy them.

Our story focuses on Cyril Aumont; an eccentric, up-and-coming alchemist currently making waves within the aristocratic Primis District of Roanoke City. Everything that could be going right for him, has. But his seemingly endless well of luck will soon lead him down a path of discoveries that not even the aptest of alchemists could begin to explain.

Even though I was tempted to skip the prologue chapters, as a Lovecraft fan I found them rewarding. 

 

So far we have: the Lovecraftian nocturnes, the social subterfuge soiree, and the adventure the bronze apostate. All very different chapters thematically. I'm very interested to see how they will all be tied together. 

 

In general, this reads like it was written with care and feels like a passion project. Love the magical objects that give a kinda steampunk feel. It certainly paints a beautiful picture. Excited to read more.
