The blurb:

In an exotic and magical land, Shuibai, a lowly bucket-maker, is appointed Fire Warden. He surprise--and annoys--everyone by taking his job seriously. Yet as he attempts to keep his city safe from fire, he finds his own life in peril as he stumbles across dangerous secrets.

Mysterious foes are smuggling illegal guns into his city, and they will stop at nothing, not even arson, kidnapping, and murder, as they wage their secret war. He is helped by the man he loves, the handsome but crippled ex-firefighter, Zashi, a man tormented by demons of his own.

Is the Fire Dragon real, or is the truth far more sinister?

Pirates of the Narrow Seas at Amazon Europe

Good news for all of you in Europe: CreateSpace has enhanced its Amazon offerings, and Pirates of the Narrow Seas now appears on Amazon.co.uk, as well as other European Amazon sites. Fans in the UK and other countries will find it easier to obtain copies of the books now. This is something I've been wanting for a long time, and I'm pleased that the distribution has improved and expanded. In other good news, Bristlecone Pine Press has an ETA of June 1 for PoNS 4 : Heart of Oak. This has been a long time coming, so I'm really looking forward to it. ~K~

Fan Review of Iron Men

Yancy Carpentier has posted a lovely review of Pirates of the Narrow Seas 3 : Iron Men at Goodreads.

"I’m a great admirer of M. Kei’s nautical tales. “Iron Men,” book three of “Pirates of the Narrow Seas,” is a grand and powerful seafaring adventure. [...] I love these stories and have read them often. Rapidly paced, the momentum never falters, and the characters are endearing. “Pirates of the Narrow Seas” is a wonderful seafaring adventure. The nautical detail is extensive, and the ships are magnificent characters in their own right. The Sea Leopard you’ve met. The Amphitrite is called Queen of the Sea and has her own story to tell. I recommend “Iron Men” highly."
