Once Upon a Time, in Venice…
In the year 1491, during a steam-powered Renaissance, Rosaria Adalberto’s quest for a theory of electricity stands at an impasse. Though born of Venetian aristocracy, her status as a woman denies her the recognition and funding she requires to complete her research.
Her fortunes change, however, when a mysterious patron approaches her. Elated at the opportunity, she accepts his offer—and is plunged into the thick of danger and conspiracy. With her life, her companions, and her love on the line, will Rosaria take up arms to defend her future? At this Renpunk adventure’s end, what price must she pay for her ambitions?
The Story Continues
Rosaria’s trials do not end with Rosaria of Venice. In this age of revolutions, both radical new technologies and dark ideologies promise to change the world forever. Ambitious and talented as she is, Rosaria inevitably becomes entrenched in this battle for the soul of an era.
The Renaissance of Rosaria Adalberto will continue in The Sin of Prometheus.
