Sophronia Belle Lyonabout this book: How did Florizel, the Crown Prince of Bohemia, become London Tobacconist? How did Oliver Twist grow up to be a wealthy Steampunk inventor? How did characters from classic Victorian novels written on both sides of the pond band together to fight human trafficking and discover a London Underworld figure about to emerge from the shadows to enslave an empire?
This book is filled with characters from Alcott, Dickens, Stevenson, Austen, Kipling, and Doyle, plus a tall tale cowgirl and a sprinkling of literary magic throughout. There's even a sweet treat recipe from a certain London Coffee shop that you can make yourself.
A blend of characters from beloved 19th century novels and mad machinery, the Alexander Legacy begins in London but may just travel the world as each book relates the first person accounts of its members. There's mystery, romance, Gothic suspense, and transformations both spiritual and physical in these stories.
I was inspired to write this series after seeing the movie "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". I didn't think it did justice to classic characters I loved, so I decided to create my own, with a strong Christian emphasis.
