Welcome to day Six of @CuriosityQuills Week! Shadows of Asphodel (Shadows of Asphodel #1) by @karenkincy #BookReview #Giveaway

Welcome to day Six! This one is some Swords, Zeppelins, and Assassin Goodness
She never asked for the undying loyalty of a necromancer.

1913. Austria-Hungary. Ardis knows better than to save a man on the battlefield. Even if he manages to be a charming bastard while bleeding out in the snow. She hasn't survived this long as a mercenary without some common sense.

When she rescues Wendel, it isn't because he's devilishly handsome, but because he's a necromancer. His touch can revive the dead, and Ardis worries he will return from the grave to hunt her down. Besides, a necromancer can be useful in this world on the brink of war.

A gentleman of questionable morals, Wendel drops to one knee and pledges his undying loyalty to Ardis. She resists falling for him, no matter how hot the tension smolders between them. Especially when she discovers Wendel's scars run much deeper than his skin, and it might be too late to truly save him from himself.

Karen Kincy (Redmond, Washington) can be found lurking in her writing cave, though sunshine will lure her outside. When not writing, she stays busy gardening, tinkering with aquariums, or running just one more mile. Karen has a BA in Linguistics and Literature from The Evergreen State College. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book was beyond this world!! I thought it was just normal steampunk until I was making up the post and noticed someone called it Dieselpunk I didn't even know that was a thing.  But in this book I could see how it could be.  Man more people need to mash up some kinds of punk and make more books because this one worked out so well! This one grabbed me from the battle ground and didn't let go until the very last page! I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the series! 

This book has wonderful world building, even better characters, and one romance to rock the decade!  

This one is full of twists, turns, and more and should not be missed!  When a mercenary meets her necromancers more than sparks fly!
