New Release: Golden Braids and Dragon Blades: Steampunk Rapunzel


I'm pleased to share that my Rapunzel retelling is now available! This novel blends my love of King Arthur stories, fairy tales, steampunk, and Jane Austen. I've somehow managed to roll all of these into one! Golden Braids and Dragon Blades tells the story of Rapunzel and Ewan Goodwin, a member of the Pellinore division of the Red Cape Society. Fans of Clemeny will love the cameo in this one. Let's have a look:


Novel Description

Being the heir to Camelot is a tangled mess.

Rapunzel has spent her entire life living in Merlin's cave on the coast of Cornwall. Under the protection of her faerie guardian, Gothel, she's stayed safe. Safe and bored. Dreaming of a life that looks more like a Jane Austen novel, Rapunzel fears she'll never have the chance to explore Victorian England's modern delights. Or meet a man. Or be kissed. Or anything else remotely resembling normal.

When Red Cape Society Agent Ewan Goodwin's monster-stalking device leads him to Rapunzel--and her unusual pets--the pair's destinies entwine. Together, they must solve a mystery tied to the very roots of King Arthur's Britannia. 

Golden Braids and Dragon Blades is a retelling of the classic Rapunzel fairy tale set in New York Times best-selling author Melanie Karsak's steampunk universe. Journey to gaslamp London during the 19th century to see how Melanie puts a steampunk spin in this reimagined fairytale.
