Candle Man: Book One: The Society of Unrelenting Vigilance

As soon as this is posted, I will be curling up in bed with a cup of hot green tea and this lovely little junior steampunk novel:

Candle Man, Book One: The Society of Unrelenting Vigilance

Candle Man is written by British comic book illustrator and writer Glenn Dakin.

From the jacketflap:

Murder, mystery, and adventure aren’t your typical birthday presents . . .
But for Theo, anything that breaks up his ordinary routine is the perfect gift.
A mysterious “illness” and Theo’s guardians force him into a life indoors, where gloves must be worn and daily medical treatments are the norm. When Theo discovers a suspicious package on his birthday, one person from the past will unlock the secret behind Theo’s “illness” and change his life forever.
Molded into an exhilarating steampunk adventure that gives birth to the next great fantasy hero, Theo Wickland, Candle Man: The Society of Unrelenting Vigilance is the first book in a trilogy by debut author Glenn Dakin.

Thanks to Kristen for spotting it first and spreading the word.

That’s what’s In My Mailbox (part 1 of 48)… What’s in yours?
