“A fine and engaging rendering of Steampunk tropes…The mix of old-fashioned slum-level criminality and futuristic space technology works well, and Diana is very appealing as she takes her remarkable journey from up, to down, to up again, despite the struggles she faces staying on top. Sharp offers crisp, lucid, straightforward writing that keeps the reader turning pages.” – Publisher’s Weekly, via PW BookLife

Diana Smythe was a child of the nobility… once. Now the streetrat known as Diver, she spends her days picking pockets, and her nights gazing at the galaxy overhead, dreaming of the day she’ll escape Earth for a brighter future among the stars.

Derek Byrne polices the grimy streets around the Southampton Spaceport, trying to keep the gangs in line and the gutters clear of riffraff. When his path crosses Diana’s, he sees beyond her masculine disguise and catches a glimpse of the remarkable young lady hiding beneath the rags and bravado.

But Derek has his own dark secrets, and when Diana averts a near-disaster at the Spaceport, fate flings them along a trajectory that will lead them to adventure, romance – and peril beyond their wildest imaginings.

Perfect for fans of Firefly, Gail Carriger, and Lois McMaster Bujold!

*SELECT REVIEWS*

“This was an extremely well-written, fast-moving short story that leads perfectly into the first book of the Feyland series. I’d already read book 1, and this prequel enhanced it for me. The descriptions are vivid and the Fey world is so interesting. Also just love the whole idea of a video game being a sort of portal to another world. My teen sons also love this series, so I think it has wide appeal” -Amazon Customer: Romance-ish Reader

“I loved this prequel to the Feyland series, as it reminded me of those girl’s adventure stories into fae borderlands that I read as a pre-teen, but with an upgrade for modern girls. Ms. Sharp’s writing is crisp and moves the story along and her descriptions are such that I could clearly see and smell the rich colors and odors of the faerie realm. This first dip into Jen’s adventures is a delicious intro to what promises to be a complex series. Looking forward to purchases the rest” – Amazon Customer: Dina Keratsis

“This was a detailed well written world of the fae. With an entirely new spin on the fae mythology. The author manages to spin computer tech with a epic fantasy environment that is commendable. Highly recommend this fast paced action adventure!”- Amazon Customer: Future Slayer Girl (aka: kitten)

The First Adventure is 15,000 words (65 pages).
